The symposium included a morning series of lectures at the Ayala Museum by renowned local and international speakers themed around historical issues and unexplored accounts reflected in antique maps and prints of the Philippine archipelago and beyond. The lectures were followed by afternoon excursions to a number of libraries, including the Ortigas Foundation Library that featured rare maps and book collections normally kept in storage and not open to the public, but were opened to Symposium participants.
