Baguio City Convention Center Postcard

The postcard shows the Baguio Convention Center located in Governor Pack Road in Baguio City. Baguio Convention Center was constructed in 1974 by the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) on property it owned in the city. The Center, designed with an Igorot motif, was inaugurated July 17, 1978 by former President Ferdinand E. Marcos. The Center initially gained international prominence when it became the venue of the 1978 World Chess Championship series between two Russian grandmasters - Anatoly Karpov and Victor Korchnoi.
