World Trade Center Metro Manila (WTCMM) bagged the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, exhibitions) Venue Award in exhibition category during the recently concluded 2022 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Tourism Standards Awards held in Cambodia last January 19, 2022
The ASEAN Tourism Standards Awards is an initiative undertaken by all 10 ASEAN member states to encourage
stakeholders in respective countries to further improve standards in terms of sustainable tourism services. This
effort is done to sustain the ASEAN region’s objective to make it a globally-known “Quality Single Destination.”
WTC Metro Manila stood out within the region after garnering top ratings in major criteria that evaluated its exhibition halls and meeting room facilities to be compliant to international standards, pursued to achieve positive social and environmental impacts and help promote health and well-being of all stakeholders. This also includes environmental compliance related to improvements and upgrades in technologies such as shift to automated LED lights and motion sensors, and introduction of photocatalyst in Air Handling Units (AHU) and energy recovery ventilators to achieve quality air supply in its exhibition halls and function rooms. Also being implemented are proper waste management, including toxic and chemical substance disposal thru DENR accredited TSD (treatment, storage, disposal) facility, and noise pollution control through management of noise levels, among others.
