Post Ad Ventures took charge of every aspect of the event, right from the conceptualization, pre-production phase to execution. The expert team handled designs, color schemes, logos, artwork, program planning, and event activities, ensuring a cohesive and engaging experience for the attendees.

The DOT-5 regional director, Herbie Aguas, added prestige to the event by gracing it with his presence and delivering a compelling speech. His support bolstered the event's significance and reaffirmed the government's commitment to Bicolandia's tourism growth.

Instead of the customary ribbon-cutting, Post Ad Ventures devised a creative and memorable opening ceremony that involved lighting a symbolic bonfire. They made a special bonfire out of banig, a conventional mat. As a sign of the interconnectedness of the provinces and to formally launch the Fiesta Bicolandia, each provincial officer lit the bonfire with a mitsa.

The heart of the event lay in the rich cultural displays of each province, showcasing their respective specialties. Artisans from each region enthusiastically participated, promoting their crafts and traditions to the delight of visitors. In addition to the cultural showcases, a tourism summit allowed provinces to share ideas and strategies for the growth and development of tourism across Bicol. This collaborative approach fosters a unified effort to attract tourists and enrich their experience.
