The Tourism Secretary, Ramon R. Jimenez of the Department of Tourism (DOT) of the Republic of the Philippines will be delivering the opening keynote address.

Sphere Conferences, the conference arm of Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SPH), also organises a series of reputable events in the hospitality sector – Myanmar Hospitality & Tourism Conference, Hospitality Investment Conference Indian Ocean and Hospitality Investment Conference Indonesia.

The Philippines is experiencing a hotel boom, with a record number of rooms being added to Manila these two years. Many are expecting this increased supply to give its tourism sector a much needed boost – towards the DOT’s target of 10 million international visitor arrivals in 2016. Set against this optimistic background, the Hospitality Investment Conference Philippines 2016 aims to bring in 200 attendees over the two-day event.
