Makati City, Philippines Meeting Planning Overview
A thriving financial and commercial center, Makati City has evolved from swampland to a metropolis with skyscrapers, upscale neighborhoods, and luxury hotels. Situated in the heart of metro Manila, the area is a melting pot of diverse people flocking to the region's business district.
Makati City is a 30-minute taxi ride away from the Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport, the main gateway to the country. The airport borders Pasay City and connects the metro Manila region to major Asian destinations, including Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and many domestic locations.
The AIM Conference Center Manila (ACCM), in Makati's business district, serves as the flagship of the Asian Institute of Management's conference venues. Located inside the graduate school's campus, the center accommodates events of 10 to 500 people, while its convenient location puts meeting participants within a five-minute walk from major shopping and recreation. The sprawling Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), is located in nearby Pasay City, serving as an option for large-scale conventions and events within easy reach of Makati City.
