HoReCa Festival 2014

As Makati still emerges as the top business setting, more and more hotels, restaurants and cafes chose it to be their home.  To make these businesses gain more strength in terms of stability, profitability and to serve more clients with greater passion, the FIRST HORECA Makati Festival had been founded.  Yesterday, was its opening day held at the activity center of Glorietta 3, Makati.

Touted as the biggest tourism events to happen in Makati, The Makati Tpirism Foundation, Inc. or MTFI have opened the historical festivity which will forever be known as "HoReCa Makati Festival 2014: Finest Footprint at its First" which was attended by foreign diplomats, industry practitioners, academe, high profile business and government figures and their stakeholders.

HoReCa, as according to Triccia Dacer, Chairperson of HoReCa Makati Festival 2014, is one of the fastest growing touristic sectors in Europe which she had derived the idea from, after having met a Parisian business executive at the New World Hotel who leads the HoReCa sector in the Middle East. The goal is to accelerate tourism and bolster economic growth that
