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 It is becoming outdated though I have to admit it is still classy, elegant and well maintained.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.

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
