WOFEX (World Food Expo)
Is the biggest and most effective food show in the Philippines today. Simultaneously occupying the two biggest venues in the country, the World Trade Center and the SMX Convention Center, WOFEX successfully covers the trade to consumer markets by properly segmenting the two venues.
For the past 16 years, the World Trade Center has been the venue for trade. With its restricted entry in the first 3 days of the expo, the exhibitors in WTC are able to concentrate their efforts to commercial and institutional accounts.
This focused approach has made it possible for buyers to go around the venue to properly source their supply needs before the venue is opened to the public on the last day of WOFEX.
Opened 7 years ago, the visitors of WOFEX have come to understand that WOFEX Marketplace is the venue to promote to a wider audience and for order taking just before the holiday rush sets in.
For the entire 4 days, WOFEX Marketplace at the SMX Convention Center is open to all trade buyers and the general public that is eager to check out all the market-ready products on display.
World Food Expo (WOFEX) effectively brings in the trade visitors into the show because it offers so much more than just the exhibition. Through its prestigious international competitions to different avenues of education it offers, there is a lot of reasons why WOFEX is considered the Ultimate Food Show Experience.
