SMX Davao to get new wing
Rosa Ocampo, Manila, March 1, 2017

SMX Convention Center Davao is expanding its facilities to cope with the growing number of bigger and international events keen on the Philippine venue.


A new building to be constructed sometime this year will connect with the existing SMX Davao, the largest privately-owned convention centre in southern Philippines.



Branch manager Daphne Jezelle Alojado told TTGmice e-Weekly that although the new building’s capacity is still under discussion, it would expand SMX Davao’s existing 7,835m2 of space for up to 5,500 pax by another 2,000 pax.


SMX Davao has already been getting business events for 6,000 pax since last year, aside from a rising number of international events, Alojado revealed.


The new building is targeted for completion either in 4Q2018 or 1Q2019.
