How to get there?

Exact location: IEC Convention Center in Pope John Paul II Ave, Cebu City. Only 5 minutes away from Ayala Center, and 10-15 minutes away from SM City.

If you’re riding your own vehicle, simply navigate on Waze and search for “IEC Convention Center”. Parking space is available, but limited only.

If you’re commuting, these are your options:
– Ride any jeepney going to Ayala, and walk from there. IC3 is just 10-15 minutes walk. Head to Landers Superstore or navigate via Google Maps or Waze. You will see an intersection road between the former Fiesta Minore and Lander’s Superstore. Walk along that road until you reach the end, then you will arrive at IEC.
– From Ayala/Lahug, ride a 04L jeepney and drop off across Landers Superstore.
– From SM City, just ride a 04L jeepney and drop off across Gate 4 going to IEC.
– From Colon, ride a 03L jeepney. Inform the driver to drop you off at Cabantan, Brgy.Luz, particularly beside Cebu Catholic Television Netweork (CCTN). Then take a short walk to Landers Superstore.

  1. Been itching for this 2nd chance. I was able to have the VIP access before but sad to say I wasn’t able to come due to unforeseen circumstances, badly hoping to be one of the lucky winners this time around.
