“In each of the hotels that I’ve worked with, the first thing that we really promote is the destination. So, of course, whenever we would go out and introduce the hotel, we will sell first Clark and then once they recognized Clark as a destination, that’s the time that we will be presenting the hotel,” he said.

Magabo said the establishment of other hotels here will also help to showcase Clark as a Meetings, Investments, Conferences and Exhibits (MICE) destination. He said that it will also of help to cater to the needs of every guests especially on the influx of investments and tourists here.

“We actually welcome the idea of them coming in to the picture, it’s actually going be helpful for us. It’s very interesting because they know that a lot of investments are being done here in the area and they know that in the future there are a lot of bigger players that are coming in. We are expecting huge conventions and we need help from the, so it will promote not just us but even the entire area of Pampanga,” Magabo added.
