“We are happy to launch this groundbreaking partnership with Esports in the Philippines, represented by PESO and its officials, in anticipation of the upcoming major esports events and activities hosted by the Philippines this year,” says Hotel101 Group General Manager Gel Gomez.
“Furthermore, we are equally thrilled that Hotel101 – Manila is now the official hotel partner to be endorsed by PESO to all its member organizations and all its esports activities this year,” GM Gomez adds.
Hotel101 Group GM Gel Gomez and PESO Executive Director signed a partnership agreement at Hotel101 – Manila, which was accentuated with a turnover of a commemorative jacket given to both PESO and Hotel101 executives.
“We are excited and thankful for Hotel101’s commitment to supporting the growth of Philippine esports as a whole by becoming PESO’s key partner in our various events and initiatives aimed to further improve and develop the state of competition in the country,” shares PESO Executive Director Marlon Marcelo.
This partnership is a kickoff of what Hotel101 has planned for the esports industry, with a roadmap that would benefit both our Filipino esports athletes and the industry in general.
