How to avail of these services:
Seminars in Metro Manila are held at the PTTC building. Interested participants may pre-register by calling the PTTC, or by sending a fax or e-mail. Walk-in participants are also allowed. Participants must pay the seminar fee before the seminar date, or on the first day of the seminar. Seminar fees are paid in cash or company check (manager’s/cashier’s check).

The quarterly schedule of seminars is published at the PTTC website and the DTI website. You may also request for a schedule of seminars by e-mail.

Regional seminars are generally conducted in co-sponsorship with the DTI regional or provincial offices, or as requested by local government units (LGUs) and regional/provincial trade and industry associations or chambers of commerce. Announcements concerning seminar schedules and registration of participants are done by the DTI regional/provincial offices.

All training programs and projects, trade fairs and exhibits, and other events held at the PTTC must clearly promote the business activities of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) as well as large enterprises, whether these activities are intended for the domestic market or the international market.

PTTC-organized seminars and trade events are given first priority in the use of the seminar rooms and exhibition halls. As such, seminar rooms and exhibition halls may be rented out to public and private sector organizers only in the absence of any scheduled PTTC/DTI activity.
