The Philippine Association of General Services Officers (PAGSO) recently held its annual convention last May 14-17 in Manila.

With the theme “Throwback to the Future to Strengthen Local Governance”, the 9th PAGSO National Convention was held in the grand ballroom of Crown Plaza Galleria Manila in Ortigas. This year’s host was Metro Manila, after a spirited round of bidding with Boracay and Vigan as alternative venues.

As always, Copylandia Office Systems Corporation was there to support PAGSO. As the event’s largest sponsor, the company gave away P100,000 worth of machines as prizes for the raffle draw. Copylandia also provided photo booth services for the 450+ GSOs who attended the conference.

The 4-day convention tackled a number of topics, ranging from RA 9184 (Modernization, Standardization and Regulation of Procurement) to the role of LGUs in disaster and risk reduction management.

As PAGSO’s official printing partner, Copylandia brought along the state-of-the-art RISO ComColor 9150, the world’s fastest full-color printer with the lowest printing cost. With a blazing speed of 150 pages per minute, it produced newsletters, proceeding notes and printing samples at an astonishing rate.

Also on display was the ineo+7000 digital press from German copier brand DEVELOP. The ineo+7000 was the highlight of the Copylandia photobooth, producing magazine-quality photo souvenirs for delegates.

On the final night, Copylandia raffled off 10 machines. First-time participant ARMM region won the grand prize, a GBC Auto+ 60X Shredder with security level 3 shredding capability.
