Marco Polo Davao marks a milestone as it celebrated its 20th Anniversary at the Marco Polo Ballroom with the presence of President Rodrigo Duterte, its VIP guests from the business sector, diplomatic corps, government, media and society.

“We are honoured that the Founding Chairman, Secretary Dominguez, had the bold vision and determination 20 years ago to partner with our company to establish an iconic, internationally acclaimed hotel. Marco Polo Davao soon became the epicentre of events for the city, and today prides itself on being the Heart of Davao,” said Wharf Hotels Management President Dr. Jennifer Cronin.

Dr. Cronin also presented a Peacock embroidery artwork as a symbolic gift from WHM which means power and grace and continuous good fortune for Marco Polo Davao. The gift was received by Halifax Davao Hotel Inc.’s Chairman Bienvenido Tan and President Francis Ledesma.

President Rogrigo R. Duterte and founding Chairman Department of Finance Secretary Carlos G. Dominguez also gave a congratulatory message to the management of Marco Polo Davao.

Marco Polo Davao has become a landmark in the city. It has grown together with the city’s momentous events and has contributed to the tourism industry in Davao City and the whole of Mindanao as well. The hotel has been part of Davao’s history and every Davaoeno’s stories.

Mindanao’s first 5-star international hotel chain opened its doors in 1998 with a vision of contributing to the growth of Davao and Mindanao as a premier destination. n
