Davao to host international air fora this quarter

by Mai Gevera-Macapagat

DAVAO CITY, Jan 5 (PIA) -- Davao City, positioned as a MICE destination or Meetings, Investments, Conventions, and Exhibitions, is ready to play as host to three tourism-oriented exhibits this first quarter of 2012.

Tourism Region 11 director Art Boncato Jr. announced this first international tourism event to the Davao media in yesterday’s media briefing at Chippens Restaurant.

These three fora are the Equator Asia Air Access Forum, the Airline CEO Summit, and the Air Network Exhibit, all slated to happen on April 17 here.

The Equator Asia Air Access Forum is a convergence of airport authorities where they can discuss challenges and future steps to be undertaken by the industry. The CEO Summit, on the other hand, is intended for all airline executives.

Boncato said this the Air Network Exhibit is a perfect opportunity for airline companies to showcase their packages and products and have it shown to all participating airline companies in the said forum.

“We are still thinking of one or two more events to tie up with these three major fora,” Boncato added.

Aside from these slated international fora, the local government is also eyeing to host the next Ad Congress, which was recently hosted by Camarines Sur.

Boncato is optimistic that Davao Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio can make it happen given that the city can now accommodate more than 4,000 visitors all at the same period.(PIA/Mai Gevera-Macapagat)
