All you need to know

In 2017, the Asia Clean Energy Forum will take place at the ADB Headquarters, strategically located in the heart of Metropolitan Manila:

  • ADB Headquarters
    6 ADB Avenue

    Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila 1550
  • Phone: +63 2 632 4444
  • Fax: +63 2 636 2444

There is regrettably no general support fund available for presenters to travel to and attend the Asia Clean Energy Forum; presenters are responsible for their own airfare and accommodation costs. For visa information, please visit the website of the Republic of the Philippines.

The Forum will take place from 5 to 8 June 2017 at the Asian Development Bank Headquarters. A location map may be downloaded here.

Arrival in Manila

Upon arrival in Manila at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA-Terminals 1 and 3), please proceed to the International Organizations Desk which is located right after the customs clearance area. An ADB contact person will direct you to the taxi queue (at the Arrival Area) for your transfer to the hotel. If arriving at Terminal 2, please proceed to the taxi queue outside the arrival area.

Accredited transfer services on a pre-paid coupon may be taken from the airport to Ortigas Center (where ADB is located) for an approximate rate of Philippine Peso (PhP) 700 (about US$16.00). Accredited NAIA metered taxis (an alternative to prepaid coupon taxis) generally fetch lower rates than pre-paid transfer services.

Hotels in the Vicinity of ADB

Download a list of hotels within the vicinity of ADB and other important accommodation details here. You may book your accommodation directly with your preferred hotel. We also recommend you to download the hotel booking form here and submit it to the hotel contact person and advise that you are a participant of ACEF 2017 and request to book a room using the ADB Corporate Rate.

Access to ADB

Registered participants will be required to present valid photo identification (passport, driver's license etc.) in order to receive their ADB-issued building access ID. Participants must then proceed to ADB's Auditorium at the Special Facilities Block to receive their Forum-specific ID. Both IDs must be worn at all times while inside ADB premises. These will be valid throughout the duration specified by participants in their online registration and will allow them to enter/exit ADB Headquarters through any of its gates.

Departure from Manila

On your departure from Manila, you are advised to confirm ahead of time with the hotel desk regarding your transfer arrangement to the airport or you can take regular taxi to go to the airport. Please prepare PhP550 or its dollar equivalent (about US$14) for payment of international terminal fee. Due to occasional heavy traffic between Ortigas Center and the airport, it is advisable to leave for the airport at least 3 hours before your flight departure.
