The tourism boom in the Visayas region is reinventing the hospitality sector not just in Cebu but in neighbouring cities as well. This growth, evident in the number of global hotel brands that have decided to put up branches in cities like Cebu and Bacolod, means that there are also new opportunities for industry suppliers to expand their business reach in the region.

That’s why Global-Link Exhibitions Specialist Inc. is bringing its renowned Hotel Suppliers Show to Visayas for the very first time. “The country is clearly reaping the benefits of the aggressive tourism campaign led by our government and this is very evident in Cebu, especially with the opening of the new terminal in Mactan Cebu International Airport,” said Patrick Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link. “As more tourists come in, the more we need to ensure that our industry is able to provide an experience at par with the global standards. This is why after years of success in Manila, we decided to bring the Hotel Suppliers Show here to Cebu – to help local industry players position their brands well and stay relevant amid the tight competition.”

Aside from the exhibit, hoteliers and human resources executives focused on the development of their business are encouraged to upgrade their skills through Hospitality Trends: Managing the Future of Work. The seminar will be led by the CEO of Y&S 1847, Mr. Merril Yu. Topics include the Philippine Tourism Update; Human Resources Practices You Should Already Have; Philippine Labor Market – Current Government Guidelines; and Finding Talent and then, Doing Good Things with them.
