From our pristine beaches and lush countryside to the exotic and off-kilter appeal of our localities, it is no wonder that the Philippines continues to attract hordes of travelers from all corners of the globe in search of a different kind of adventure. On the flipside, the local tourism industry is witnessing an unprecedented surge in Filipino’s jet-setting activities, as more and more people get acquainted with the joys of travel and leisure.
Inspired by the growing need to provide Filipinos with more access to hassle-free travel and leisure products, Worldbex Services International (WSI) – the country’s leading events and expositions organizer – is more than thrilled to present the first-ever Travel and Leisure Expo (TLEX) Davao on May 11 to 14, 2017, from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM at SMX Convention Center, SM Lanang Premier. Admission is free!
Co-located with the 3rd PHILBEX Davao, TLEX Davao marks a groundbreaking chapter in the trade show history of Davao as it forms part of a sensational convergence of the region’s construction and design industry with that of its burgeoning travel, leisure, hospitality, and tourism sector.
In effect, a strong sense of anticipation surrounds TLEX Davao not only as it is the first to be mounted by WSI in the region but also as it is expected to deliver a truly memorable and exciting experience for the people of Mindanao. As its tagline of “Excite. Explore. Experience.” suggests, TLEX Davao ultimately aims to inspire visitors to discover the world of travel. And one way of doing this is to bring within reach a wide array of top-rated and accredited travel and leisure brands.
Eyeing an estimate of 13,000 visitors including those who will be attending PHILBEX Davao, TLEX Davao is set to occupy a total of 1,263 sqm of exhibition space as it houses over 40 exhibitors from all over the country.
From premium and accredited travel agencies and tour operators, the exhibitor profile of TLEX Davao include national tourist offices and organizations such Visit Davao Fun Sale, airline companies like Philippine Airlines, cruise liners and shipping firms like Cathay Pacific, as well as countless hotels and resorts. One of its official media partners is the Davao Bloggers Society.
In opening up Mindanao to a host of travel and leisure opportunities, TLEX Davao envisions an optimistic and promising impact towards the enrichment of the region’s cultural and social development. Moreover, it signals a favorable outgrowth for the region’s local tourism and hospitality businesses.
Renowned for its spectacular and world-class expositions, WSI through the first-ever TLEX Davao is poised to change the way people travel in the region and likewise their impression about what trade expos should be. Given that TLEX Davao is only the first of many installments to come, WSI is confident that it will only mark the beginning of bigger and greater things to come for Mindanao’s travel and leisure industry.
