KidZania Manila Introduces Community of Partner Brands

KidZania Manila is all set to bring the ultimate and interactive role playing experience in a kid-sized city for children aged 3-14 years old this early 2015 at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Philippines.

KidZania Manila I know most of you are eagerly excited as I am to let your kids explore this real-life indoor play city where they can learn through personal experience, ignite their imagination and freely choose any role they want to be – whether they aspire to be a pilot, baker, firefighter, newscaster, policeman, etc. And, to make this experience as authentic as possible, over 40 of the country’s most respected brands  have signed up as KidZania’s Industry Partner.

KidZania Manila Last January 29, 2015, KidZania Manila introduced and paid tribute to its Industry Partners in a presentation hosted by Ms. Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan held at the Hotel Intercontinental Manila. Gracing the event were over 100 officials representing the different Industry Partners, media and other guests.
