Conventions, both national and international, are being held in Cebu regularly. Together with the increasing tourism patronage from locals, OFWs, and foreigners, there will be a big shortage of supply for the hotel industry in Cebu as it plays catch up to address the growing demand for hotel rooms in the next 3 to 5 years.
