MAKATI – Metro Pacific Water – the wholly-owned water investment subsidiary of infrastructure conglomerate Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC), bagged two Stevie® Awards this year in the Innovation in Events and Innovation in Marketing Categories in the sixth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards last April 18.
With close to 900 nominations across the Asia-Pacific region considered this year, the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards and the only business awards program to recognize innovation in the workplace in all 29 nations of the Asia-Pacific region.
Metro Pacific Water won a Silver Stevie® in the Non-Profit Events category for co-hosting the International Water Association’s EFFICIENT 2019 Conference in January, together with Maynilad. With the theme Water Efficiency – Driving Sustainable Development, the conference gathered 377 urban water and wastewater professionals from 27 countries.
Metro Pacific Water also won a Bronze Stevie® Award for its Innovation in Sponsorships for The Metro Pacific Water Experience - Major Sponsors to the annual Philippine Association of Water Districts Convention (PAWD). The PAWD Sponsorship was recognized as the official launching of the Metro Pacific Water rebranding effort, which won a Silver Stevie® Award last year, to the client water districts in the biggest annual convention held in Iloilo City.
More than 100 executives around the world judged the entries in March and April to determine this year’s winners. The Awards will be presented to the winners at a gala banquet at the InterContinental Hotel in Singapore on Friday, 31 May.
