PHILBEX Cebu affirmed its commitment to lead the region’s construction and design industry into a future of sustainability and progressive innovation with another groundbreaking installment, its press release said.

The 16 th edition opened yesterday at SM City Cebu Trade Hall, and the grand launch was well-attended by VIP personalities from the government, and representatives from the construction and design trade.

With the theme “Shaping Innovations Toward Sustainability”, this year’s PHILBEX Cebu aims to unite architects, engineers, interior designers, industry professionals, and enthusiasts in its endeavor to promote the value of ingenuity and innovation in shaping the industry into one that is self-sustaining and adaptive to the ever-evolving demands of the times.

As PHILBEX Cebu moves closer to its silver anniversary, this year’s theme also aligns itself with the organization’s core thrust of leading the region’s construction and design trade at the forefront of global ascendance, the press release said.

Organized by Worldbex Services International, the 16th PHILBEX will run until Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the SM City Cebu Trade Hall, and admission is free.

From last year’s 105 booths, PHILBEX Cebu 2018 houses over 120 booths and more than 78 exhibitors across its 1,158 square meter-wide exhibition space. Something new to watch out are the roster of international exhibitors from countries such as China, South Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore.

Other event highlights are the Architect’s Gallery, a venue that showcases the unique design perspectives and insights into the latest trends by the region’s top architects and their firms; Projéto Cebu Furniture Design Competition, a challenge of creating a studio-type condominium unit that will address a student’s need for a relaxing and work-conducive haven; and PHILBEX MiniCons, considered a platform for the free-flowing exchange of information about innovative solutions that will address issues that concern the industry, the press release said.
