IN A bid to address the infrastructure deficit in the country, the Duterte administration spearheaded the “Build, Build, Build” program as an initiative that pledges to usher in a “golden age of infrastructure” for the country in the years to come.
In turn, the Philippine construction and design industry appears to be making headway towards an unprecedented growth. More than ever, the national government needs the collective efforts, not only of its various implementing sectors but also, the proactive participation of the concerned industry at large.
In support to the government's infrastructure program, the Worldbex Services International (WSI) brings back the Philippine Building and Construction Expo Davao (Philbex Davao) on May 10 to 13, from 11am to 7pm at the SMX Convention Center Davao, 3/F, SM Lanang Premier. This held back-to-back with the 2nd edition of Travel and Leisure Expo (TLEX) Davao.
Centering on the theme of “Shaping Innovations Toward Sustainability,” Philbex Davao 2018 is set to house a total number of 219 booths and an exhibitor count of 95 participants from all over the Philippines and other countries such as China and Indonesia.
Maria Luisa Abaya, President of the Chamber of Real Estate and Builders' Associations Inc. (Creba), said “With great confidence, Creba believes that this event, touted as the Philippine’s largest and most complete construction exposition, will promote and strengthen the construction industry in Davao and Mindanao, as a whole.”
“[PHILBEX Davao 2018] is a good example of an event where people are exposed to information on the latest technological trends; ones that are being used in other contexts beyond Davao. Indeed, this is a chance for our people to learn and discover that perhaps, some things are needed to be replaced so that we may bring forth more advantages,” Eleno Pee, President of the Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers of the Philippines Inc., said.
