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.

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,” said WSI Founding Chairman Joseph Ang.
