Thank you for joining us in Manila!

We were delighted to see so many of you at our annual meeting in June. Co-hosted by Microfinance Council of the Philippines, the theme of the 2024 meeting was “Building Responsible Finance Ecosystems: A Summit on Responsible Finance in Action.”  

This event — our biggest in-person gathering each year — is always a phenomenally energizing and inspirational experience. Thank you for all the knowledge, curiosity, and passion you brought to our discussions.

Lieu de la réunion

The Manila Hotel
1 Rizal Park, Ermita, Manila, 0913 Metro
Manille, Philippines

After you arrive at The Manila Hotel, check in with our staff at the registration table next to Centennial Hall to receive your name badge and other conference materials. As you enter the hotel lobby, Centennial Hall is immediately to your right down the hall after you go through security.

After you arrive at The Manila Hotel, wait in the lobby for our staff to collect you and lead you to your field visit vehicle (bus or van). Please take note of the departure times! These field visits leave very early in the morning to avoid traffic. You can view the agendas for each field visit ici.

❛❛Attending a Cerise+SPTF Annual Meeting means for me going back to the deepest motivation of what drives me to work in the financial inclusion space. It is a refreshing source of inspiration that energizes me and helps me to face the difficulties and disappointments that we inevitably face. The annual meeting is not only unique because of its outstanding content, but also because it gathers highly committed, noble and fundamentally good people. It is not difficult to make friends for life at the Cerise+SPTF meetings.❜❜
— Loïc De Cannière, Chairman of SPTF

The dress code for the June 4-6th conference is business casual.  It’s going to be warm in the Philippines (but transitioning to the rainy season), and, as ever, our annual meeting is a task force meeting.  We’re all going to roll up our sleeves and do some work, so please dress for comfort!

The dress code for the June 7th field visits is casual. The Philippines is warm and currently entering rainy season, so wear comfortable clothes and shoes appropriate for the outdoors.  We also recommend bringing these items to the field visit:

  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Umbrella
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle – in an effort to be eco-friendly, we will provide big water containers on the field visit vehicles that you can use to refill your water bottle.
  • Notez :‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎: lunch will be provided, so there is no need to pack one.
