Php 300M Renovations projects at the Marco Polo Plaza Cebu

Php 300M Renovations projects at the Marco Polo Plaza Cebu Exciting things are up ahead at the Marco Polo Plaza Cebu as its owning company, Cathay International Resources Corp. renews its commitment to maintain and uplift the standards of this deluxe hotel property. In 2015, the hotel is embarking on renovation project for the Cebu Grand Ballroom.

“Cebu is a top destination in the Philippines. We decided to upgrade the Grand Ballroom because the MICE market for regional, national and even international groups is growing fast. The need for a bigger venue is there and management wanted to address that,” stressed Julie Najar, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu’s General Manager.

Ballroom renovation started in March 2015 with its first phase expected to be complete by August of the same year. From its original size of 756 square meters with the capacity to accommodate 500 guests on a banquet set-up, it can now accommodate 800 guests on a banquet set-up with the additional estimated 300 square meters. It can also be divided in three different ways, making it a more flexible venue for different kinds of events.

With the renovation of the ballroom also comes the upgrading of the audio-visual technical equipment. Acquired from different parts of the world such as China, Italy, USA, Germany and Japan, the new equipment guarantees to suit current international standards. The expansion of the ballrrom will be completed in August, in time for the APEC Summit 2015.

The designing company for the new Grand Ballroom is DSFN Architects led by Architect Dewey Santos. The budget for the renovation is estimated at 300M Pesos, including future renovation of suites and premium rooms.
