Cebu hosting nat’l ICT summit

Cebu City, Cebu — Following the devastation wrought by the earthquake in Bohol, the sixth annual SummIT of the National ICT Confederation of the Philippines (NICP) originally set in Tagbilaran City next month will be staged in Cebu City on November 28-30 at the Cebu Parklane International Hotel.

In a press statement, SummIT organizers announced they have decided to transfer the venue of the annual event to give Bohol enough time and space for its recovery and reconstruction efforts.

“We’re very sorry the event would not push through in Bohol as scheduled,” NICP president Wit Holganza said. “Tagbilaran would have been a great host for the SummIT, but we had to change the venue as we don’t want to be an added weight on the shoulders of the Bohol Provincial and Tagbilaran City governments.”

Holganza added that the change of venue would allow the LGUs to concentrate mainly on their recovery and rebuilding efforts.

With the change of venue of the sixth NICP SummIT, the Cebu Educational Development Foundation for Information Technology (Cedfit), as the ICT Council of Cebu, has accepted the challenge of being the new host.
