PhilConstruct 2014: The Festive Silver Anniversary Celebration

25th PhilConstruct Opening Ceremony

The long wait is over. The biggest construction expo event in the country has arrived - the PhilConstruct 2014! But this year it's more special because this huge trade show is a celebration of its staggering silver anniversary of uniting the construction industry! 

With thousands of participating exhibitors, from November 5-8, the 25th PhilConstruct Series happens simultaneously in three venues - SMX Convention Center, World Trade Center Metro Manila, and the Philippine Trade Training Center.

Opening Ceremony 

Afternoon of November 5 2014, the opening ceremony started with a prayer then one-by-one, the VIPs and officials of the Philippine Constructors Association. They shared their brief thoughts about their past experiences and exciting journey during the first few years of Philconstruct, along with HVAC-R. Finally, the throwing off of the confetti signals the official opening!
