Company History

HOW WE STARTED.   

The BUSINESS CENTER FOR   GLOBAL FILIPINOS, CORP. (BCGF) is the reinvention of the 22- year-old company REMSPEC, INC. (estab. 1992), which was retired because the latter no longer perfectly describes the present projects and vision of the company. REMSPEC is an acronym for the services that the company offered to the stakeholders in the tourism, food and events industries. REMSPEC’s clients, mostly belonging to the top 5000 companies in the Philippines, knew the company as a Resorts & Events Marketing Specialist. To pursue the company’s current vision of providing more services to more industries and expand its market globally, the Business Center for Global Filipinos, Corp. was incorporated in April, 2018 as as full-blown management consulting and marketing company.   BCGF, in its early days as REMSPEC, began as a marketing agency that specialized in managing corporate events in hotels, resorts and theme parks. It then transitioned to handling hotel and resort operations especially for processes that that venue‘s facilities or staff cannot handle  particularly volume  catering    requirements   through   its  food company, Islands Bistro Catering Services; entertainment needs for celebrities, live music and dance shows, design for event teasers and registration system, among others.  REMSPEC eventually graduated as a wholesaler of resorts and hotels, offering to the general public, the products and services of its Principals serving either as Manila Booking Office, Online Marketing Arm or Exclusive Reservation Office. It served prestigious properties like the 500- room 5-star property, Legenda Hotel in Subic Freeport Zone, owned by an International Chain of Malaysian Hotels, the Legend International Resorts, Ltd.); a class “AA”- 3-hectare property, Whiterock Beach Resort & Hotel; Club Morocco Country Club owned by Sta. Lucia  Properties; Waterfun Waterpark that pioneered theme parks in the South; Westnuk Beach Resort owned by the National Power Corporation and many more. One of its more challenging feats was being the Official Marketing Arm of the Greater Subic Bay Tourism Bureau marketing all tourism stakeholders in Bataan, Zambales and Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

BCGF’s President and current CEO, Desiree Joy B. Alcala, is a veteran in the hospitality industry having started her career as a hotelier during her college years in the early 1980s. Her parents  owned  Tayabas  Bay  Beach  Resort,  a most frequented family-run business in Sariaya, Quezon where she honed her skills taking part in running the different departments of the resort, from housekeeping to accounting, daily administrative operations to sales and marketing functions. Their family business’ success encouraged other land owners to build their own resorts until Sariaya, Quezon was declared by the Department of Tourism as a major tourism zone of Quezon Province. As TBBR’s former Sales Manager, Ms. Alcala was responsible for bringing in a multitude of big and multinational corporate clients that include Nestle, Sharp Philippines, Wyeth Philippines, Triumph, Toyota, Motorolla, Coca-cola, Smart Telecommunications, United Laboratories, Toyota, Uniden and Motorola, just to name a few.

Having gathered quite a pool of clients during her TBBR days, it was then just so easy for Ms. Alcala to grow Remspec Marketing, a sole proprietor’s business in 1992, to a successful marketing and a one-stop shop event requirements corporation in August, 1995. Expanding beyond the different products and services offered by Remspec, Inc., which included the management of hotels and resorts, Public Relations, Tri-Media Advertising, Web and other IT Business solutions services.
