Thalassophiles are in for another exciting treat as the Sea-Expo 2018 will embark on yet another appearance at the SMX Convention Center this October. Get ready to indulge yourself on a visual feast of both foreign and Philippine yachts, sailboats and more marine merchandise.

What is Sea Expo?

Sea-Ex is a yearly event that aims to “provide a venue for the local and international marine industry to come together and showcase their products and services to the Philippine market.” Be ready to as the event surprises you with your boating lifestyle needs such as:

  • Boats
  • Watersports Equipment
  • Dive Shops
  • Luxury Automobiles
  • Summer Apparel
  • And Supplemental Services

It’s also a conference for key players of the maritime industry all over the world to share and exchange ideas with regards to localized case study application to the following areas:

  • Philippine Tourism
  • Coastal Development
  • Maritime Safety
  • Marine Preservation

The great thing about the expo is while it caters to the people that are focused on their maritime lifestyle, it never forgets to tackle important issues with regards to tourism and marine life. In fact, the organizers even moved the dates of the show to the month of October “in order to coincide with the recently proclaimed ‘Maritime and Archipelagic Nation Awareness Month’ (MANA MO),” according to their Facebook event page. This is to create a cohesive and equally beneficial atmosphere all around.

So it’s not all about luxury and businessmen going on about forming partnerships that would benefit their companies. It’s much more than that, and it aims to be open to all attendees.

What to Expect?

Last year’s Philippine boat show and nautical lifestyle expo, or Sea-Expo for short, was done at the same venue on March 3-4. It was even promoted by the International Boat Industry News, showcasing their own yachts, fishing boats, marine gear, and more. You’ll be sure to find something you like for your boat or for another fellow seafarer as you roam around.

This year’s Sea-Expo marks the 10th annual appearance of the event in SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia and this time it would be on October 5-7, 2018. There are plenty of Philippine and foreign exhibitors showing off fishing boats from Robalo, kayaks from Hobie, and yachts from Princess.

These are just some of the brands seen in the expo, and pictures aren’t enough to justify the quantity and quality of the showcase. So to give you a sense of what you can expect, here’s a vlog by Gino Ansenio Lopez showcasing all the marvelous sights in the previous expo.
