Conference and food trip in Cebu – Part 1 of 2

The past two weekends have been very hectic with out-of-town trips each weekend. The first was a vacation in Davao and Samal. The second trip was for work; a conference held in Cebu. I’ll save the best for last. πŸ˜‰ So today’s blog will be about my Cebu trip (no worries, I’ll skip the boring bits). The conference was from the 11th to 14th of September, but we were there from the 10th to 13th. We skipped the last day of the conference because it was only a fieldtechnical trip and a golf tournament.

On the 10th, we arrived mid-afternoon, dropped off our personal luggages in Bayfront Hotel, and headed to Radisson Blu to setup our booth. The company (I now work in) was a Platinum Sponsor in the conference, so we have an exhibit booth twice as big as a regular sponsor’s. We readied our tarpaulin posters and streamers, had a table arrangement and candies and flowers too. The tarpaulins were put up using only tape. As expected, all of them were on the floor the day after preps and the first day of the conference and exhibit. Throughout the duration of the event, we and with the help of Radisson Blu staff kept fixing the tarpaulins especially those with the company names. I’m aware that using regular tape would result in a disaster, but I didn’t have powers in decision-making. I do think that we should have used instead high quality paper or a durable 3M tape.

TBC in the last part of this blog. I wanted to do a single post, but changed my mind when the photos took forever to load.
