Davao hotels, resort professionals and tourism executives earn international certification


The globally-recognized certification program for sales professionals optimizes their marketing and revenue management skills as they keep up with evolving sales techniques and strategies in the industry. The awarding of certificates and pinning ceremony were held during the HRSMA’s annual induction and renewal of membership at the Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao on July 26.

Representatives from 20 hotels and resorts out of 33 member properties were all in attendance for the mid-year event, well prepared with the support of some of Davao’s trusted suppliers–Pachadas Event Styling and Limitless Catering Services. Among the honorable guests were Regional Director of DOT XI Tanya Rabat-Tan; Executive Director of Asia World Hospitality Machi Borja; Executive Chairman of MICE Davao Kennedy Kapulong; property heads and sales directors.

Accredited members of the Davao Hotels and Resorts Sales and Marketing Association and staff of the Department of Tourism Region XI become Certified Hotel Sales Professionals by American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI) standards through the Tourism Industry Skills Program (TISP) grant.
