Former U.S. President is scheduled to speak in the Philippines on November 10, at Wednesday, at 4 P.M. local time.
Unlike former Vice President,who spoke earlier at the SMX Convention Center attached to the SM Mall of Asia, former President Clinton will be speaking at the Manila Hotel.
Earlier this year, I reported an update on the Manila Hotel:
The Manila Bulletin recently promoted/introduced the new website of the Manila Hotel. This historic hotel, revered as the Grand Dame of Hotels, is in its 98th year of service. Many famous guests have stayed here since 1912: Generals Douglas MacArthur & Masaharu Homma to name two.
To bask in the world-class amenities, one can book one of the close-to 600 rooms that range from about 15,000 to 35,000 PHP per night. This is a great location for an absorbing stay in Manila and possibly good value at that price.
Former President Clinton is following on the heels of his wife's visits as U.S. Secretary of State in the aftermath of typhoon Ondoy/Ketsana & at least one other time.
At the following Manila Charities page, you can take a Climate Quiz that supports the William J. Clinton Foundation's efforts around the globe.
Tickets for this event are on sale and range from 2,000 Php to 25,000 Php.
The event is titled "Embracing Our Common Humanity" and tickets can be purchased from ticketworld.com.ph and other outlets or directly at the host venue.
The Manila Hotel will be the ideal location for this event. Please consider 'appropriate' dress code in advance, since Manila Hotel & 'other' rules apply. If you are planning to attend this event as a non-VIP, please ensure that you secure your tickets as soon as practical.
