Keeping it clean and classy


When one of life’s basic necessities – food, water, shelter, etc. – is in crisis, we all need to be part of the solution and do our personal share to conserve. Metro Manila is in crisis and we are living with a water shortage. 

Apart from the efforts to conserve water, we should also think about keeping the used water clean. Water rationing could help but if we use water wisely and learn to “recycle” even water, we could help in conversing this basic human need. 

At the ongoing World Building and Construction Expo, or simply WORLDBEX 2019 at the World Trade Center, I came across a company called Cleantech. This company’s mission is to help companies, institutions, and community to comply with prescribed environmental regulations and promote green clusters and communities.

Cleantech provides cost-effective environmental related services, equipment and other clean technologies that will take into strong consideration the emerging global concern on the serious status of environment (specifically in water). Check out this company and other interesting building materials that keep eco-friendly issues in mind.

At the highly anticipated expo, a grand opening ceremony was held at the venue lobby. In attendance during the program were representatives of guests of honor DPWH USec. Catalina Cabral, DTI Asec. Angelo Taningco and HLURB CEO Atty. Lloyd Christopher Lao together with Worldbex Services International’s (WSI) Founding Chairman Joseph Ang, Co-Founder Levi Ang, Executive Director Arch. Francisco Flameño Jr., Managing Director Jill Ang, and Directors Rene Ramosand Tessie Roque.

With its mission to contribute to the continuous development of the industry, the Worldbex brings together most influential players in the field – from architects, engineers, interior designers and key decision makers to construction companies, design firms, manufacturers, and stakeholders. With this, visitors can definitely expect a wide range of features and event highlights that are all aimed at improving the quality of life of Filipino communities.

At the entrance of the main hall at the World Trade Center, there are several interior design showcases that display fine art pieces and stylish furniture and furnishing for visitors to view. For my showcase, I collaborated with Mejore Furniture to display their latest products like an elegant sofa that converts to a sofa bed. Other pieces include a dining set with soliya accent chairs and glass table.

For the flooring of the booth, I got Matimco Flooring to display their Ashwood flooring in brush finish. Matimco recently opened a showroom at Paranaque and will open another branch at Westgate Alabang on April.

After visiting my booth, I headed to the Wilcon Showroom to check out the latest products available at Wilcon. I was especially interested with their giant industrial size ceiling fan. They are selling smaller sizes that are perfect for home use. 

Simultaneously held at the World Trade Center and the SMX Convention Center, this year’s show boasts of a 33,000sqm exhibition space that houses the widest array of construction and design products as well as services from over 700 local and international exhibitors. To be exact, there are 1,500 booths along with various associations and embassies that are present at this year’s WORLDBEX.
