Government and private sectors are very keen on taking advantage of Iloilo City’s booming potentials as ideal convention destination in the country.

Initial plans to put up convention centers in the metropolis are on the pipeline for the establishment of facilities and amenities that would attract guests and visitors to host and organize big events and gatherings here.

Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog is eyeing a city-owned lot in Molo district for the construction of convention center, noted Atty. Eduardo Peñaredondo, executive assistant for infrastructure.

A perspective with project name Iloilo Convention Center which includes construction of a building with office has listed the City Government as client of the design as posted on website of Izumo Contractors, Inc.

Industry players were long vouching for a 5,000-seat facility for hosting of big events such as the annual AdCongress that is seen to boost the city’s capabilities as the next convention destination.
