Meetings, incentive travel, conventions, and exhibitions, or MICE (meetings, incentive travel, conventions, and exhibitions), are specialist tourist industries that call for higher levels of tourism services and facilities.

The MICECON offers a venue where MICE stakeholders can learn from the most recent trends, strategies, techniques, and insights from international professionals. It also uses its message as motivation to propel the Filipino MICE and tourist industries to new heights.

Health, safety, and hygiene are in the spotlight as the world begins to open up again to tourism. Hence, it is urged for everyone to use less plastic in order to protect marine life and stop other diseases brought on by negligence.

In support of the “no single-use plastics” movement, Rep. Duterte’s team distributed around 2,000 reusable bags to all attendees and spectators of the biggest gathering of the MICE professionals.

Along with properly disposing of one's waste, the First Congressional District previously started a "Save the Environment Movement - No to Plastic Bags" to combat the rising concern over plastic pollution.

Everyone is encouraged to eliminate plastic bags, cups, drinking straws, stirrers, and the like from their households and businesses. Instead, everyone is encouraged to use reusable-produce bags and other reusable-produced materials.

“Single-use plastics like water bottles and grocery bags choke landfill and pose a hazard to wildlife. We want to avoid that from happening continuously, thus using reusable bags. Reusable bags are environmentally friendly,” Rep. Duterte said.

According to reports, the enormous amount of rubbish collected has already filled the sanitary landfill in Davao City to capacity. The rapid waste generation may be a result of rising consumption and population growth.

Davao City has implemented the “No to Single-Use Plastics Ordinance of 2021” as a step to lessen the production of plastic garbage in Davao City. The ordinance forbids the use of plastics and controls their distribution and sale.
