As always expected, WORLDBEX 2013 will be loaded with top notching highlights such as seminars by leading industry scholars, diverse galleries, competitions and product launches.
As the building and construction’s originalities evolved, WORLDBEX has never ceased to actively sustain its rise from the ground, proven by its recorded foot traffic of 152,000 visitors before 900 booths and 500 exhibiting companies. Away from towering aesthetically pleasing edifices, practical application of emerging technologies and inventive techniques are such evidences of its ambitious progress. And now more than ever, WORLDBEX once again plays the major role in fortifying the foundations of the industry to remain ON SOLID GROUND.
In the words of WSI Founding Chairman, Joseph L. Ang, “Though the industry itself projects an already entrenched spot in the market, breakthroughs should not end there, a business should never stop surprising its market”. From an unending pursuit of improvement stems WORLDBEX core objectives of offering nothing only but the best, “That is what one will find in WORLDBEX 2013, the up and coming trends, the breakthroughs, possible collaborations to support the industry, it is an intellectual exposition knocking right at the center of the country” stressed Chairman Ang.
And in the light of providing solid knowledge the show will feature local speakers in the likes of Ms. Gemma Cruz-Araneta, Arch. Daniel Lichauco and Archt. Philip Recto and international speakers like Mr. Russell Cole and Mr. Theodore Chan for its 15th year series from March 14-16, 2013.
And serving as a source of inspiration and solid practices, visitors will have the chance to view works by the country’s established and rising industry artists such as Albert Yu, Felino Palafox Jr. and Jonathan Gan at the Architects and Interior Designers Gallery. Exhibits on overseas trends will also be available at the International Pavilion and Grand Embassy Pavilion. Under the real estate realm, Furniture Pavilion will showcase an exceptional collection of works from renowned developers and furniture manufacturers and distributors in cooperation with the Chambers of Furniture Industries of the Philippines.
To foster a solid experience, the show’s intercollegiate interior design competition OBRA MAESTRA presented in partnership with Wilcon Depot and in cooperation with Council of Interior Design Educators will test the country’s budding interior design students on how they will effortlessly blend the timeless appeal classics with the trendy ambiance of contemporary design in TRANSCENDENCE: Classical Accents in Contemporary Settings.
And to promote solid innovation, respected brands of the industry like Pacific Paints, the name behind BOYSEN Philippines will introduce “COOL SHADES” their new water based, heat reflective colored roof coating, Puyat Flooring’s APO Real Wood made from 100% solid wood will also be presented as well as Akari’s newly designed LED bulbs, Puyat Steel’s APO Galfan Sheets and Coils for extreme industrial applications, Matimco House of Wood and Jaro Glass’ collection of Modern Aluminum Folding doors and Seamless Aluminum Curtain Wall System.
