As a retail leader, I make it a priority to participate and attend these kinds of events in the industry. With the recent success of United Architects of the Philippines’ Convention Exhibits (UAP-CONEX), I was able to explore the diverse and growing business companies and meet a crowd of professionals in the industry. Also, it was a privilege to be part of the ribbon-cutting ceremony together with the UAP National Officers and other well-known architects in the industry.

CONEX, the Philippines’ premier building and construction exhibition, is an annual event that demonstrates state of the art products and is a perfect ground to promote technologies, equipment, and materials on the Philippine market from the different construction sectors.
