The 2016 ARTDO Jeepney Ride

As the 43rd hosts of ARTDO International, the jeepney does not just represent the Philippines as the host nation but also this year's theme Engaging, Enriching and Enabling Global Leaders.

Dubbed as the king of the road either as a compliment or otherwise, this iconic vehicle undoubtedly adds vibrancy in the all too often gridlocked metropolis. If one would look closely enough, the jeepney is moving art gallery that reflects the Philippines and it's people identities.

A remnant of the American occupation in the 1940's, the Filipinos ingenuity transformed the military Jeep from a four seater vehicle to a twenty-two passenger highly innovative mode of transport

The word jeepney is said to be a portmanteau of the words jeep and jitney. Another theory says it must have been from the words jeep and knee, as the unintentional touching the knee of your neighbour with your own is inevitable.

A jeepney engages all your senses from its flamboyant design to the actual experience of riding one. We aim to engage you with the forums, sessions and talks with our distinguised guests and high calibre speakers throughout the conference.

A jeepney ride enriches experience. As one of the most popular modes of transportation in the Philippines, these are taken by people from different walks of life and meeting some of them can change your life for the better and see things is a different perspective

The three-day conference is like jeepney ride; a chance to take advantage and participate in meaningful discussions and interactions with participants who are from different cultures and nationalities.

A jeepney enables change. A vehicle meant to carry four passengers now transformed to carry five times more

Change is invitable so we must learn to adapt. Just like the jeepney that went through an innovative transformation, we look for lucrative ways to deal with the ever changing market and industry. We must think of ways to continue to exist and flourish. We seek for new and highly relevant ideas to keep going forward

The ARTDO conference is a perfect venue to accomplish all these things. Connect, network and mingle to broaden perspectives and use these as enablers of change in your life, community and organization.
