MANILA RANKING HIGH IN POPULAR CHOICE TO BECOME New7Wonders OFFICIAL HOST 2011
Still missing official support!

Zurich/Switzerland, Apr. 27, 2009—Visitors to the new7wonders.com website have been suggesting leading cities around the world to become the Official Host for the Declaration of the New7Wonders of Nature event in 2011. Manila is frequently chosen in this poll, yet without official support now it cannot be considered by the organisers.

The opportunity to be in the global spotlight
''Cities and countries around the world are being invited to submit their bids to become the exclusive Official Host of the biggest event in 2011'' says Jean-Paul de la Fuente, Director of New7Wonders, ''Manila certainly seems to be a popular choice, but unless we hear from the official authorities within the next few days, it may well miss out on the chance to bid.''

The Official Host 2011 receives unique global image and branding around the world over three years, and is the location for the Official Declaration of the New7Wonders of Nature event in 2011—when the result of 1 billion votes is revealed to the world during a spectacular gala.
