The Philippines is once again chosen as the preferred destination for upcoming key association conferences with subjects ranging from medical, geology to real estate. Now looking ahead, the country is all set to welcome many more international meetings;

  • 2018 | 14 Asia Pacific Regional Rotaract Conference (APRRC)

Estimated delegates: 619

  • 2018 | 27 Federation of Asia Pharmaceutical Association Congress (FAPA)

Estimated delegates: 2074

  • 2018 | 4 Asia Pacific Coral Reef Symposium

  • 2018 | 11 Congress of the Asia Pacific Society of Atherosclerosis and Vascular Disease (APSAVD)

Estimated delegates: 380

  • 2018 | 11 Asia Pacific Orthodontic Conference

  • 2019 | 29 Scientific Meeting of the Asia Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL)

  • 2019 | 23 Asia Pacific Congress of Cardiology

  • 2020 | 68 World Congress of the International Real Estate Federation FIABCI

In continuation to successfully hosting more than 90 international association meetings since 2016, as recorded by ICCA, all confirmed international and regional conferences show confidence for Philippines in bridging the gap with local associations. This collaborative effort highlighted not only Philippine’s capacity to successful address the importance of a conference but also forging business relationships with association executives as it is in line with the country’s growth in the meetings industry.

To further accommodate the associations segment, major developments of world-class meeting facilities will be expanded across the country. According to report by TOPHOTELPROJECTS, more than 10,000 rooms for 37 hotels projects are to be constructed in the next five years. In 2019, two SMX Convention Centers will open in Cebu and Clark, while several hotel groups will continue to develop their properties all over Philippines.

As one of the leading Southeast destinations, Philippines also caters to the need of other industries with ease, having hosted a series of meetings during the Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in 2017.
