Manila-based event organizers and team building facilitators are constantly pressured to find suitable out-of-town venues for teambuilding and other corporate or social events for their companies or clients. Holding events and functions out of town is becoming the norm rather than the exception for companies and social groups based in Manila. It seems that people want to get away from stress and pressure of living or working in a crowded city like Manila.
In a recent report published by Philippines travel agencies that specialize in organizing corporate functions and events for Manila-based companies as well as wedding and other social functions, one of the hotels in Clark Pampanga was cited as offering the best venues for outdoor events and garden wedding receptions.
Factors affecting the choice for a suitable team building venue outside of Manila include:
Accessibility: proximity to Manila shortens the journey and reduces the travel time to the event venue leaving more time (and energy among the participants) for programs and activities.
Privacy and Exclusivity: is crucial as experienced team building facilitators would tell us; nothing spoils a team building event faster than a few untoward incidents involving other people around the public resort or hotel. It is this reason that many event organizers no longer favor public venues like beaches and parks.
In addition to site surveys and other processes of assessing the quality of sites as venues for team building and other social and corporate events in the Philippines, travel agencies also obtain comments from companies and social groups who have used a resort for an event.
Not all resorts and hotels in the Philippines publish customer comments. But Clearwater Resort publishes comments on their web site.
