Philippines, 7 July 2020 – Global-Link MP Events International, Inc. today announced the launch of its newest platform by VX Events, where four of its trade events will hold virtual editions starting October this year. The events are entitled Pack Print Plas Philippines VX (October 8 to 14), Hotel Suppliers Show VX (October 15 to 21), Beauty & Wellness Manila VX (October 22 to 28), and PHILCONSTRUCT VX (November 5 to 11).
“The events industry is going to continue to change for the months and years to come,” said Patrick-Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link MP. “While we hope for things to go back to normal, we know we have to continue serving the needs of our clients, our exhibitors, and the people who join trade shows to generate business. VX Events is our answer to that. We’re leveraging on our experience as trade event organizers and using technology to continue doing that in a digital space.”
The announcement was made through an interactive virtual press conference attended by notable personalities from the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The press conference also featured an impressive walk-through of what to expect on the upcoming virtual events.
” Global-Link MP made it clear that it will not be a replacement for physical, in-person events. In fact, Pack Print Plas Philippines and PHILCONSTRUCT are pushing through with their physical shows alongside the virtual editions. “You really cannot compare physical events to virtual events. Both have their own sets of advantages,” added Jing Lagandaon, COO. “While going virtual is certainly not a Band-Aid solution for us, we are serious about developing this here in the Philippines. By putting up VX Events, we are replicating the advantages and business opportunities found in physical trade shows and delivering them in a virtual space, giving people alternatives.”
