Following the regional success of Philconstruct Visayas and Philconstruct Mindanao last June and September, Philconstruct Events, Exhibitions and Conferences Corp. (PEECC) and the Philippine Constructors Association, Inc. (PCA) successfully staged Philconstruct Manila last November 5 to 8 at the SMX Convention Center in Manila, World Trade Center and the Philippine Trade Training Center.
Dubbed as the country’s biggest and Southeast Asia’s longest-running construction exposition show, Philconstruct 2014 was held simultaneously in three venues with the goal of reaching a bigger audience and keeping industry players abreast of the most recent trends in the robust-growing construction sector.
At a press conference held before the show, Event Chairman Ronaldo R. Elepaño said: “We are truly overwhelmed at how much this show has grown and how companies have chosen it as their platform to promote their products and meet buyers in this booming industry.”
In a separate statement, PEECC Chairman Jorge A. Consunji told the press that Philconstruct is their “way of highlighting the immense potentials of the Philippine construction industry.”
Philconstruct 2014 featured HVAC/R Philippines, the country’s one and only air-cooling and ventilating expo organized by the Philippine Society of Ventilating, Air-conditioning and Refrigerating Engineers, Inc. (PSVARE), as well as Technoforum, a series of seminars that opened a venue for experts and industry professionals to discuss relevant issues and share best practices in the construction industry.
The sold-out exhibition show gathered tens of thousands of trade visitors and buyers and featured over 1,500 exhibitors carrying top-of-the-line industry brands from countries like Canada, China, Germany, Philippines, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States.
Last June and September, Philconstruct set new records in Cebu and Davao with trade attendance of 9,198 and 9,131 visitors, respectively. This event is a nationwide series held in three major cities in the country’s three major regions.
