The building and construction industry in the Philippines is fast-growing, with more people becoming interested in it. As the number of construction professionals grows, there is a need to further develop the community’s understanding of the industry’s undertaking. Building and construction trade shows exist to not only educate but to only help companies and contractors be in touch with potential clients and develop partnerships.
That said, here are three of the country’s top building and construction trade shows to keep tabs on.
Top Building and Construction Trade Shows in the Philippines
PhilConstruct is one of the Philippines’ longest-running and largest trade events that cater to the building and construction industry. It is an industry event made also by those within the industry to ensure that those in attendance remain well-connected to the people who matter to their businesses. The event has since become a household name in the industry trade events scene. Each year, PhilConstruct houses companies from over 20 countries which ensures both local and international exposure.
PhilConstruct has three editions catering to audiences and companies across the Philippines. Their Mindanao leg of PhilConstruct 2022 recently closed its doors as it ran from September 8 to 10, 2022, construction professionals and industry leaders graced the SMX Convention Center Davao that shared their knowledge on various topics with those in attendance.
PhilConstruct began its 2022 event series with PhilConstruct Luzon, which ran from June 9 to 11, 2022 at the SMX Convention Center Clark, Pampanga. PhilConstruct Visayas happened a month after and ran from July 21, 2022, until July 23, 2022, at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino, Lahug.
Pinoy Builders at PhilConstruct
Since 2019, Pinoy Builders has been present at PhilConstruct to not only promote and foster but also to be a part of the growth of the country’s construction industry. Apart from having the chance to be present at their physical events, Pinoy Builders was also a part of PhilConstruct’s virtual event series, PHILCONSTRUCT VX, where we also had the honor to sit down and have an interview with PHILCONSTRUCT’s Event Chairman Junn Elepaño.
In 2022, Pinoy Builders was also present for PHILCONSTRUCT Mindanao 2022 Hybrid Edition, which happened from September 8 to 10, 2022, at the SMX Convention Center Davao.
