In just five years since its establishment in the Philippines, Thunderbird Resorts, Inc. has successfully developed leisure and entertainment businesses in the country with international standards.
It boasts of two world-class properties that hold luxury resort venues catering to leisure, sports, recreation and entertainment activities.
One is located in the highland oasis of Binangonan, Rizal; while the other Mediterranean-inspired property is in the peninsula of Poro Point in San Fernando, La Union.
As part of its development plan, Thunderbird Resorts built the first state-of-the-art, 500-seat-capacity EVENT CENTER in Rizal, a destination perfect for transforming the dull into the dramatic.
The EVENT CENTER held its formal launch on February 18, 2011. A true masterpiece unveiled, guests are welcomed with festive performances from the Buganda drumbeaters and fire dancers.
The ribbon-cutting followed afterwards and was led by Rizal Governor Jun Ynares III, together with Thunderbird Resorts executives namely Raul Sueiro, VP for Asian & European Operations; Angel Sueiro, VP for Design; and Fabio Moretti, Country Manager, as well as Former Finance Secretary Roberto "Bobby" De Ocampo. Beauty Queens of Miss Earth Philippines also graced the ribbon-cutting.

Distinguished personalities were also present during the launch: Sonny Dominguez, former Secretary of Agriculture and Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources; Palawan Governor. Abraham "Baham" Mitra; Roberto "Bobby" De Ocampo, former Secratary of Finance.
Appealing to the appetite of the attendees, Thunderbird Resorts Rizal Executive Chef Jean Paul Capitaine served delectable Mediterranean dishes that were also fitting to be called masterpieces.
Then, further adding excitement to the celebration, 18 lucky guests went home with their respective raffle prizes such as (10) iPod Touch, (5) iPad, and (3) LED TV.
As the night came to a close, dazzling fireworks lit up the sky and with that, the Event Center Launch celebration ends on a very high note.
Thunderbird Resorts Rizal EVENT CENTER sets the stage for performances, concerts, exhibitions, meetings, banquets, and all other kinds of moments to remember. The night unveiled the latest, biggest, grandest masterpiece in the community – and a facility unlike any other. Where one can experience drama, euphoria, success, bliss, and excitement.
To kick-off the EVENT CENTER as a concert venue, the Prince of R&B Jay-R and R&B Princess Kyla performed on a jam-packed night last February 19, 2011.
Commenting on the growth of the business, Fabio Moretti, country manager of Thunderbird Resorts, Inc. says, “It was challenging but very rewarding. When I look back I can see that we have already come a long way, but at the same time also makes me feel how much more opportunities there are in the future.”
