In the morning of September 16, 2016 at the DENR office, the Cagayan de Oro city prime officials gathered together for the third time to discuss and strategically plan out this year’s upcoming International River Summit to happen on November 24-26, which will be hosted here in Cagayan de Oro City.
The meeting began with an invocation and introduction of each person invlolved in the local organizing committee with an overview on the IRS by Mr. Alvidon Asis, ENVI Head of the LCP office. Then, a few updates from the previous meetings.
Among those who were present were representatives from IRS Committee with Hilly Ann Roa-Quiaoit, IRS Chairperson, representaives from DENR, LCP, PIA, MUST, STI College, SRLSFI, DOT-10, CDOICBMC, and the IRS Docu Team. Some of the topics tackled was the physical arrangement of the whole event to be held in Luxe Hotel. Expecting that the amount of particpants will be around eight hundred fifty, they scrutinized and re-examined every detail to make sure that the venue would be able to accommodate the amount of people. While still making sure that the plenary sessions will be comfortable enough for every person to participate in.
Another topic, worthy of note, that was brought up is the traffic and transport of foreign delegates where they will be provided with necessary transport assistance from the airport to the venue, as well as assisting them in their place of stay while being in the city.
The committee has chosen Prof Org (Professional Organizers) as the event organizer of the IRS, assigning them with the flow of the program, conference design, VIP arrangements, and assist on the Exhibit preparation where they will coordinate with MinDa and DENR.
