Metro Manila Meeting Planning Overview
The bustling capital of the Philippines, the modern bayside city of Manila stuns with its soaring skyscrapers and rich culture. Fascinating history, along with world-class Manila meeting venues and incredible value are just some of the reasons planners hold their meetings in this busy, populous region that serves as the center of Philippine socio-economic and political activity.
Located near Manila’s central business district, Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport is considered the primary gateway to the Philippines and is conveniently connected to the Manila Light Rail Transit System.
Chief among convention venues in Metro Manila is the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), located in Pasay City. Recognized as Asia's first international convention center, PICC officially opened in 1976 when it hosted the World Bank-International Monetary Fund Annual Meeting. Today, the center’s five versatile building modules set along scenic Manila Bay host summits, major conventions, concerts, and other international events.
