The first day of the expo was kicked off by a Tourism Appreciation Night attended by special guests, partners, and local officials. DOT Region IV-A Officer-in-Charge Marites T. Castro and DOT Assistant Secretary Maria Rica Bueno expressed their gratitude to the public and private sectors, travel and tourism partners, for their continuous support in promoting tourism which has contributed to the region’s progress.
The Pledge of Commitment of Support Toward Sustainable Tourism was also signed in order to strengthen the commitment to responsible tourism, especially where rich natural resources are involved.
Other highlights of the evening were the CALABARZON Regional Branding Launch and the Tourism Excellence Recognition Ceremony, where Enchanted Kingdom was one of the awardees.
