The PICC is one of the buildings that was built to showcase the Philippines as an emerging economy back then. While it is starting to show its age, it still is a heritage that can still be used and appreciated until now. The style and architecture are classic and can withstand the test of time. The acoustics are still good... More

This facility sucks. My wife took her oath for her profession and this was the venue chosen for the event. We brought our son as this was a special day for us but the guard won't let my son enter as he was below 11 years-old. It sucks. Very weird rule. Result was I was not able to enter as... More

When ever I go here for shows, I don't find anything of excitement or interest performing or going here. It is becoming outdated though I have to admit it is still classy, elegant and well maintained. This is just near CCP and Sofitel, so you can also probably check this place if your near the area.

Once again i found myself on the steps of PICC to attend the commencement exercises of my sister A few weeks back. Its been a while since i was at this place. I have fond memories of this venue, from watching concerts, to attending conventions, and several school gatherings. This huge venue can accommodate thousand of people. Very spacious and... More

It has aged since the Marcoses built it for the IMF/WB meeting. There are better places in Asia for your convention. Otherwise, why would you want to visit?

... and the security force is ill-equipped, complacent, and overbearing. They don't seem to mind that event after event, more than one theft is reported. The plenary hall has a grand total of 1 CCTV camera that has horrible resolution and positioning. I could say more, but really, what's the point if nothing is to be done about it?

My dad is a retired employee of P&G and annually for past few years they always have their company convention here. The place is very spacious ideal for big conventions, the ceiling is gorgeous its an old building but has alot character and charm to it. I just hope they update some of their facilities.

This place used to be top of mind when it comes to conventions not only locally but in the region. We were once called the "Convention Capital of Asia", but now we lost that title to our neighbors! The PICC needs some serious funding for proper upkeep of this place. This Place is not overshadowed by the SMEX and soon... More
