PHILBEX & TLEX 2018: Elevating the Way We Build and Travel

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Recognizing the boundless prospects and world-class caliber of the region’s construction and design industry, Worldbex Services International (WSI) – the country’s leading events and expositions organizer – in a game changing move, introduced the first-ever Philippine Building and Construction Expo Davao in 2014 – a regional franchise of the company’s iconic WORLDBEX in Manila. More recently, WSI in its bid to empower the region’s travel and tourism sector, introduced the first-ever Travel and Leisure Expo Davao in 2017 with considerable acclaim from both consumers and industry professionals alike.

This year, WSI picks up exactly where it left off as it announces the return of its highly anticipated trade shows in the region. Happening back to back this May at the SMX Convention Center at the third floor of SM Lanang Premier is the 4th PHILBEX Davao and the excitable 2nd edition of TLEX Davao. Highly regarded for delivering no less than topnotch and all-inclusive trade events, WSI’s back-to-back shows are expected to stir up a flurry of promising B2B opportunities. Meanwhile, its diverse presentation promises consumers convenient and extensive access to a wide array of products and services.

Building for the future

Last year, incumbent Mayor Sara Duterte praised PHILBEX Davao for its timely contribution for the region’s rapidly expanding construction industry. In which she claims that “[PHILBEX Davao] will be a good opportunity for everyone in the industry to acquire new skills and be updated on the latest innovations and technologies in the field to help raise the standard of the city’s construction industry and find feasible, long-term solutions to design and construction challenges for a stronger, sturdier, and more progressive Philippines.”

Now on its fourth year, PHILBEX Davao aims to deliver a spectacular show and affirm its position as the region’s biggest and most comprehensive construction and design trade expo. In line with WSI’s overall direction for the sector this 2018, PHILBEX Davao will take after the theme of the recently-concluded WORLDBEX 2018.

In “Shaping Innovations Toward Sustainability”, this year’s PHILBEX Davao carries through the vision of encouraging the industry to examine the need to elevate the technological aspect of the region’s construction and design practice while also taking into account the need to incorporate environmental preservation strategies.It is this central element which will be addressed and tackled by close to 95 exhibitors from the region and all over the Philippines as well as countries such as China and Indonesia.

In numbers, PHILBEX Davao 2018 is poised to impress as it reports an increased exhibitor count of 219 booths and a total exhibit area which surpasses last year’s 4,480sqm estimate. Indeed, this year’s show is expected to be PHILBEX Davao’s most groundbreaking installment yet.

Apart from an comprehensive showcase of the latest and most innovative products and services, among the must-see event highlights at PHILBEX Davao 2018 include the Architect’s Gallery, the Interior Designer’s Gallery, the Worldbex Lab exhibit, the PHILBEX MiniCons, the Philippine Institute of Interior Designer’s Mini Talk Show, and the 2ndProjeto Davao Furniture Design Competition. 

Inspiring travels and beyond

Following its successfully debut last year, TLEX Davao returns to arouse the spirit of adventure among the people of Davao. Centering on the theme of “Excite. Explore. Experience”, the 2nd TLEX Davao seeks to inspire people to discover the world of travel as it brings within reach the widest array of top-rated and accredited travel and leisure brands.

Attesting to the high-demands of the region for quality tourism products and services, this year’s TLEX Davao reports a remarkable increase in its show statistics. From last year’s booth and exhibitor count of 68 and 50 respectively, TLEX Davao is set to house 90 booths as it welcomes more than 70 exhibitors – expanding its exhibit area from 1,263sqm to 1,500sqm in total.

From travel agencies, airlines, and hotels to resorts, couriers, cruise lines, and shipping companies, visitors may also expect a range of exclusive travel promos throughout the four-day travel show. Also not to be missed are the series of pocket events and activities that will be hosted by Visit Davao Summer Festival to engage visitors and promote Davao as a travel and leisure destination.

“TLEX Davao, on its first run, seeks to foster a strong sense of adventure by bringing within reach a wide range of travel and leisure products along with an exciting line-up of tourism-related events and programs. And we are optimistic that this is only the beginning of bigger things to come for the region’s tourism and hospitality industry,” enthuses WSI Founding Chairman Joseph Ang.

Though still in its infancy, TLEX Davao has come to assume a significant position in the region as a top-grade venue for all things travel and tourism. More than just about empowering the region’s reputation as a tourism hub, TLEX Davao ultimately aims to enhance the development of Davao’s economic sectors by way of improving its travel and transit logistics industry.

Hailed as one of the fastest growing cities in the world, Davao in all its robust potentiality has been demonstrating quite an unprecedented economic growth for the past few years. With the return of PHILBEX and TLEX Davao, two of the region’s most promising industry sectors can expect to benefit from the insights and networking opportunities that is in-store for visitors and exhibitors alike.

PHILBEX and TLEX Davao 2018 is happening on May 10 to 13, from 11am to 7pm at the SMX Convention Center Davao located at the third floor of the SM Lanang Premier. For more information, check out @worldbex and on facebook and instagram.
