The event, called 7NEWJUANDERS2019: The Seven New and Enterprising Ways of Growing Philippine Tourism Awareness and Local Economies”, will be held at the Iloilo Grand Hotel in Iloilo City on Feb. 22, a press release from non-profit organization, The Dream Project PH, saidyesterday.
The press release said that the event, which is now on its fourth run, is inspired by the timeless significance of the "Seven New Wonders of the World" program concept for the youth, created to celebrate Filipino ingenuity, innovation, and inspiration through new and enterprising ways initiated and sustained by seven outstanding Filipinos who continuously challenge and positively impact their respective industry sectors.
The event is a project collaboration of the Tourism Educators and Movers Philippines and The Dream Project PH that aims to showcase innovative and "glocally" competitive ways on how to diversify, build, and sustain local industry economies across the region, it said.
Last year, it gathered 1,232 participants from 42 schools from Western Visayas, Negros Island Region, and Central Visayas.
It will open its registration to more students and administrators from the fields of business, hospitality management, tourism, and graduate school, officers from local, provincial and regional government units, members of the private sector and business organizations, and various industry practitioners, the press release also said.
Since its launch, the program has been providing special seats to different local government agencies and other concerned stakeholders to help them better and innovate their current programs and interventions that are geared towards inclusive and sustainable business and tourism, it added.*
