Rogen Inn, a choice MICE venue & more

Rogen has become a favorite venue for MICE gatherings, and more

Rogen Inn is now marked as a choice venue for MICE and staycation by many. 

March was the busiest month for the young hospitality establishment, when Rogen Inn has proven to be an excellent venue for meetings, conferences and events. The inn was a “partner hotel” of the Micecon 2023, the premier gathering of professionals in the MICE industry. In the same month, it was also one of the chosen residences for delegates of several of the biggest conventions Davao has hosted after the pandemic lockdown. 

“Rogen Inn in March 2023 was at its busiest. We had the highest occupancy rate for rooms and function halls in the inn’s 11-month history. Everyday was a busy day and it was a challenge we met head on. We can say we did it with flying colors,” said Gene Bangayan, manager of Rogen Inn. 

Leading to the next month, April is no different. The first half of month was ushered in with full house days for Rogen Inn, as shared by the sales and marketing team. With the bookings for rooms and events, it will continue on until the end of the month. 

April, also a busy month for Rogen Inn

“Large groups from national brand companies, religious congregations, educational institutes and private enterprises are scheduled for private functions at the ballroom and meeting rooms, and residency at Rogen Inn. With more April bookings in line for confirmation, we are looking at a busy month ahead for Rogen Inn. Surprisingly, these bookings were done prior to Micecon 2023, one of the city’s most publicized events,” said Bangayan. 

The inn conceived for business people has its share of the staycation market as well. Families with children from the city and other regions have had their staycations at Rogen Inn. The most recent influx of staycationers was during the long Holy Week break. The Easter Promotion which offered low room rates and access to Easter activities drew in a crowd.

Adding to the rise of occupancy rate of Rogen Inn is the high walk-in rate, shares Bangayan. This has been the trend for the past quarters. 

Whenever guests check in at Rogen Inn, the receptionists ask how they knew about Rogen Inn and why they chose to stay at the inn. Four replies are consistent. First, Rogen Inn was recommended by business associates, relatives and friends. First hand recommendation is one of the effective promotions any brand can have. Second, the affordable rates, a good price for a new and well-designed room that comes with free breakfast. Third, the location. Tucked in a quiet spot in the city center yet very accessible to pertinent areas guests need to be.Fourth, the select Davao favorite restaurants offering a good range of cuisine. 

“It’s value for money for every guest we welcome at Rogen Inn. As travelers ourselves, whether we do it for business or leisure, this is what we look for as well,” Bangayan shares. 

May 2023 marks the first year anniversary of Rogen Inn. Bangayan said that the favorite business inn has lined up exciting offers to make Rogen Inn still on the top of mind of every business and leisure traveler in the coming months.
