5 Things You Missed This MICECON 2014 #micecon2014

Monday, June 16, 2014

A week has passed. MICECON 2014 ended with a bang and if you are not there being a member of the tourism industry, here are the top 5 reasons you missed it BIG TIME!

1.    The Great Speakers

Speakers are the heart and soul of MICECON 2014. I enjoyed the talk of Theresa Breining about the Industry’s Evolution and Revolution and Shawna Suckow’s Winning Business in Tradeshows. But what brought the house down is Carelle Mangaliag’s talk on Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). For me she is the star of the event because of the way she connected with the audience. And yes, I must say this she is a Filipina.

2.    The MICECON Mobile Event App

Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) partnered with Guidebook to produce a mobile app that can be downloaded in the delegates’ smartphones. This gave most of the delegates ease and comfort in knowing the event program and other vital information, less the heavy papers.

3.    The Fantastic Opening Ceremony

Every time you create a theatrical opening to a serious business proceedings it will be remembered. In addition to the great opening is the great event theme song that will give you a LSS (Last Song Syndrome). In fact, I cannot helped myself but sing and hum the song unaware that I was doing it during the two days of the conference.

4.    The Clark Airport Sponsored Lunch

MICECON Delegates were transported to the Clark Airport and inside the airport the delegates were treated with Pampanga’s great food. The dancing Cebu Stewardess performed. Food was served like the way it was being served when you’re traveling in an airplane. For me, it is one of the best sponsored themed meals I was in.

5.    The Grand Palazzo Royale Masquerade Sponsored Dinner

I never thought that there is a Castle-like venue inside Pampanga. Everyone is in awe upon seeing the magnificent venue of the Masquerade Ball. The theme fits the majestic venue.  

Indeed, MICECON 2014 is a memorable event. Clark showed the attractiveness of it's location as a MICE Destination. I can't wait to do an event here. Most of all, I can't wait to be part of the next MICECON.
