In Cebu, design is everywhere—from the internationally celebrated furniture creations and the city’s sophisticated and modern homes, to the cutting-edge, recently inaugurated Mactan-Cebu International Airport.

So it doesn’t come as a surprise that the country’s leading events and expositions organizer Worldbex Services International will launch the Philippine Building and Construction Exposition (PHILBEX) 2018 on September 13 to 16 in the Queen City of the South. Here’s what you can see at PHILBEX on its four-day run:

More than 120 specialty exhibitors


This year’s PHILBEX Cebu will unveil over 120 booths and 80 exhibitors from here and other countries such as Malaysia, China, South Korea, and Singapore, giving homeowners, builders, and designers a wide array of products and services.

New building and finishing products


Looking for new products and out-of-the-box solutions for your renovation and home-building projects? You can find all of them here, whether it’s for interior, exterior, or industrial-grade building needs. Some of the booths you can expect would be of steel products, cleaning systems, innovative steel roofing, sturdy Apo vinyl flooring (below), lighting, sanitary fixtures, and unique, Asia Pacific Form & Structure decorative panels (above).


Architects’ and Interior Designers’ Galleries


One of the highlights at PHILBEX is the Architect’s Gallery, which is a gathering of the region’s top architects and firms including Abadia Architects and Designers, Archiglobal Inc., Nueast, Arkitecture, and more. Another highlight is the Interior Designer’s Gallery’s interesting booths, which are presented in partnership with the Philippine Institute of Interior Designers (PIID) VisMin Chapter and the PHILBEX Minicons.

A special Cebu furniture design competition


Since Cebu is known for their internationally renowned design, it is but right that a competition is held for the next generation of furniture and interior designers from the region. Students taking up architecture, interior design, or engineering can join the Projeto Interior Design Competition, where they will design a sustainable, PWD-friendly small space. The selected finalists’ works will be exhibited at PHILBEX.
