Hey all foodies and travelers! To boost Makati Tourism, the Makati Tourism Foundation, Inc or MTFI will launch its first ever HoReCa Makati Festival 2014! It will be held at Glorietta Activity Center on September 15-16, 2014.
HoReCa stands for Hotel, Restaurant, Cafe/Catering. It's a joint effort with the Department of Tourism to attract more local and foreign tourists, food lovers and travelers and join the fun festive activities prepared for them. Lots of exhibitors, freebies and giveaways, business group discussion, best promo deals await.
“We wish to introduce to the general public the sector of HoReCa or Hotel Restaurant Café / Catering considered to be one of the fastest-growing touristic sectors in Europe and the Middle East. HoReCa is concentrated specifically on hotels, restos, cafes and catering companies because they are believed to be a pump-primer to propel economic growth due to high-rate employment especially in exhibitions that attribute high success rates in marketing and revenue generation of participating exhibitors. Hence, we trust that a similar principle is adoptable with the current market conditions in Makati,” Triccia Dacer, Chairperson and main proponent of the HoReCa Makati Festival 2014
Various hotels will also join this effort to boost Makati Tourism.
“We want the public to know that doing business is not the only enterprising element found in Makati, in fact we want also to emphasize that business men, business travelers and tourists (local and foreign alike) are also attracted by Makati’s recreational venues for family bonding like parks, old symbolic churches and other cultural heritage spots that veer towards the traditional Filipino way of family bonding and away from the technologically-driven culture of today.”
L-R: Mr. Voltaire Villegas. Mr. Alex Willats, General Manager of Dusit Thani. Ms. Triccia Dacer, Festival Chairperson. Dr. Elton See Tan, MFTI President. Ms. Catherine Agustin, OIC of DOT-NCR and Mr. Christian Pirodon, InterContinental Hotel Area Manager
Let's make Makati City "The Business Tourism Hub of the Philippines"! Mark your calendar and save the date for First HoReCa Makati 2014 happening on September 15-16.
See you there!
