Quest Plus Conference Center, Clark was one of the big winners at the 5th Sports Tourism Awards last December 6, 2022.
For delivering top class hospitality service to hundreds of basketball game officials, players and trainers during the PBA and FIBA Asian Cup Qualifiers in 2020 to 2021 and for being the first and only hotel to mount successful sports bubbles in the country, Quest Plus Clark was cited as the 2021 Philippine Sports Tourism Hotel of the Year.
The Sports Tourism Awards are given to outstanding contributors to the fast-growing sports tourism in the country and their efforts in sustaining local and international events despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 to 2021.
Quest Plus Clark General Manager Michael Gapin, together with Executive Assistant Manager Mabel Lopez Roman and Director of Sales and Marketing Judy Sarmiento, received the prestigious award. “This recognition is very special to us because it is coming from a time where the hospitality industry was greatly challenged. I want to dedicate this award to our hotel staff and associates. Without your sacrifices, tireless dedication and passion for the job, none of this will be possible. This award is yours.” Gapin says during his acceptance speech.
Other awardees are the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup as the Tournament of the Year, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas as Association of the Year, Clark Freeport as the Destination of The Year, and Cebu Pacific Air as the Airline of the Year.
