While many organizations in Cebu recognize the necessity of team building seminars, the cost for good team building venues have been prohibitive. Resorts were not really built for team building programs as they serve more of the leisure requirement of their guests. With this in mind, facilitators from the Cebu Team Building Services network continually scout for alternative team building venues in Cebu and the Philippines.

Lately, we came across the Department of Education’s Ecotech Center in Sudlon, Lahug, Cebu City. Ecotech Center is a seminar facility run by the Department of Education’s Central Visayas regional office and intended as a venue for the various seminars that the department conducts. Alternatively, as a way to generate income, Ecotech’s facilities have been opened to external users making it one of the cheaper venues for meetings, seminars, and other functions.

The facilities at Ecotech Center include various function rooms, lodging facilities ranging from triple sharing accommodations to dormitory rooms(all airconditioned, and cafeteria. They also rent out LCD projectors, organize city tours, and provide catering services.
