Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu was recently awarded by CEI ASIA magazine as one of three “Best Resort Hotel for Business Events” in its annual Industry Excellence in Business Events survey. The resort is the only Philippine establishment to make it to the prestigious list.
The Industry Excellence survey is designed to gather insights on what event organizers and buyers across Asia Pacific repute as top choices in destinations, hotels, bureaus and many more for business events. Industry peers vote on different categories and, for the past 15 years, the survey has been viewed as a benchmark to showcase and celebrate the best in business events.
Over the years, the CEI brand has become the definitive meter for Asia-Pacific’s corporate events industry, covering the leading brands and their event strategies. It is recognized as an authority for detailed, independent and in-depth source of information written by experienced journalists for corporate clients and events planners.
“We are delighted to be named one of Asia’s top resorts by the readers of CEI. This recognition comes at a most opportune time, as we are in the middle of preparations for the 2015 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in the Philippines – an event that will put the country in the world spotlight. Cebu will be hosting sectoral meetings and this gives us another opportunity to showcase the resort’s MICE capability. The resort has hosted large-scale, high-profile events in the past, and our team takes care of an average of a thousand guests a day – that gives us an operational advantage in handling events of this scale. And this recognition is another boost to our confidence,” said Albert La Fuente, the resort’s director of sales and marketing.
