DAVAO City is capable of hosting the Philippine Asian Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions (Mice), Tourism Davao Regional Director Arturo P. Boncato Jr. said Tuesday.
Mice was organized by various business organizations, hotel industry players, and various government agency, including the Department of Tourism (DOT) for business tourism stakeholders to present and discuss new trends and directions in the regional and global market.
This year's Mice will be hosted by Cebu City this September wherein a maximum of 300 delegates from all over the country are expected to attend.
Boncato said the city has strong attributes to host business gatherings; that makes it perfect for Mice hosting.
According to Boncato, Davao remains to be at the top five Mice destinations and is part of the advisory council composed of Manila, Subic, Cebu, and Davao.
