The mini-concert saw the performances of the bands from the Philippine National Police, National Bureau of Investigation, Armed Forces of the Philippines, and Bureau of Fire Protection.

Performances from Global Impact, Child Alert International, Religious of the Good Shepherd-Center for Overseas Workers, and NAKAMATA were also showcased during the mini-concert.

Since its creation in 2011, the IACAT Network XI has conducted a yearly advocacy project in the effort to spread awareness about human trafficking.

Some of the recent advocacy campaign projects of IACAT Network XI were the video-infomercial making contest (2015) and mural painting activity (2016). (IACAT-XI)
