Philconstruct 2016: The Philippines’ Biggest Construction Show

Category : Uncategorized

Recognized as the biggest trade event for the construction industry in the Philippines, PHILCONSTRUCT has been bringing together thousands of companies and trade buyers for more than two decades. In 2010, the organizers heeded the call of equipment suppliers to expand the show. The event that used to be just held at the SMX Convention Center Manila now also occupies the World Trade Center Metro Manila and WTCMM – Tent where it houses the most impressive showcase of machinery and equipment.

“The PHILCONSTRUCT promise is to bring you a venue where the top brands and service providers gather. We have exerted great efforts to grow the show in terms of exhibit categories, number of companies participating, and quality as well as quantity of visitors to the show. Today, we can say that it is the leading meeting place for industry stakeholders,” says Wilfredo Decena, PHILCONSTRUCT 2016 Overall Event Chairman. “And we are not only focused on the building sector. PHILCONSTRUCT is meant to be holistic so we’re also doing our best to cater to allied industries such as mining.”

Philconstruct Events, Exhibitions and Conferences Corp. (PEECC) together with PCA and Philippine Society of Ventilating, Air-conditioning and Refrigerating Engineers (PSVARE) conspires in bringing you a venue where the top brands and service providers from the construction sector and air and cooling industry come together on November 10 – 13, 2016 – the 27th PHILCONSTRUCT. Wilfredo Decena added, “We are expecting over 1,400 companies to occupy more than 52,000 sq. m. of exhibit space in SMX Convention Center, World Trade Center Metro Manila and WTCMM – Tent.”

Aside from the exhibit, this event will host the 13th Estilo de Vida, an interschool interior design competition for aspiring interior designers and Technoforum, a series of knowledge-sharing seminars on topics related to the building and construction industry. For this year’s Technoforum, PHILCONSTRUCT will be collaborating with the world-renowned construction event – World of Concrete in bringing you a wide array of seminar topics from Constructing Structures for the Storm to Innovative Concrete Systems. “PHILCONSTRUCT is more than just a trade show. This is an effective avenue where professionals will gain more than just business connections and exhibitors will meet their prospective buyers,” Decena added.


More than 71,000 visitors took part in the 4-day trade event.

Last year, PHILCONSTRUCT, the longest-running construction show in the South-East Asia, set a new record as it welcomed a total of 71,378 trade visitors during its 4-day event held last October 8 – 11, 2015, in three massive venues – the SMX Convention Center Manila, the World Trade Center Metro Manila, and WTCMM-Tent.
