Last October 4, Xavier Ateneo Advancement Office joined The City of Cagayan de Oro and the Oro Chamber at the Oro Best Expo held in Edsa Shangri-la. Featuring the best products and services of Cagayan de Oro, this is the first time where the expo was held outside of the city, and the first time Xavier Ateneo joined as an exhibitor.
The University joins the Oro Best Expo to create more partnership opportunities for Xavier Ateneo as well as to promote the Campus of the Future. Atty Roy Raagas of City Hall opened the event together with Oro Chamber President Ray Talimio, joined by various sectors from Cagayan de Oro.
The Cagayan de Oro Investment forum was also held in parallel with the EXPO on 5 October 2023 at the Manila Shangri La Hotel.

One of the highlights of the forum was of the Aerial Mass Transportation System that was proposed by Engr Paras which connected downtown and uptown CDO.
