ECoS is dedicated to hosting events that illuminate, guide and inspire…

On Sept 6, 2011, West Gorordo Hotel hosted the First Multi-sectoral Community Speak-put against a mindless government infrastructure project: the proposed Gorordo Avenue flyover. It was an unexpected convergence of concerned and awakened citizens, where civil society spoke up and refused to be silenced by powerful local politicians. Having witnessed that historic convergence, we at West Gorordo Hotel understand the importance of having a central community space where people can gather, exchange ideas and be heard.

West Gorordo Hotel’s ECoS exists to provide a welcoming space that will cultivate and sustain long lasting relationships in Cebu. Together we can work to create positive social change.

We envision it to be a versatile social, cultural, professional and educational gathering space connecting individuals of all ages. It can be a venue for morning workshops, trunk shows, music recitals, art exhibits to evening book signings and receptions, small academic/professional conferences, public lectures, workshops, ‘open-mics’, poetry readings, film screenings, exhibitions of local art, community craft projects and craft exhibits… our focus is on enriching lives through community collaborations.

With West Gorordo Hotel’s community events space, you and your organization can now host life-enriching events without emptying the pockets of your attendees. At WGH, we can assure you that hosting an event don’t have to cost you a fortune. We provide you with consistent and reliable service at reasonable prices.
