Miss Global 2016 at the Philippine International Convention Center
The Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) made history as Asia's first international convention center, setting a trend that led other countries to build their own.
Designed by Leandro V. Locsin, a Filipino National Artist in Architecture, the PICC Complex formally opened on September 5, 1976 to host the World Bank's International Monetary Fund Annual Meeting. After this, the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) established itself as one of the most versatile event arenas in the Asia-Pacific region by being the venue of political summits, medical conventions, and concerts of international artists as varied as Luciano Pavarotti, the Bolshoi Ballet, Ricky Martin and Burt Bacharach.
Built on reclaimed land along scenic Manila Bay in the Philippine capital, the PICC has more than 70,000 square meters of floor area and a range of facilities that can accommodate almost any gathering of any size.
The PICC has five (5) building modules, the Delegation Building, Secretariat Building, Plenary Hall, Reception Hall and The Forum. Spaces herein are versatile enough to be transformed into almost any number of settings for any kind of exhibition, convention or special event.
