The highly anticipated Interior & Design Manila Hospitality event unfolded from September 21 to 23 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City with over hundreds of attendees per day. This remarkable gathering, curated by and for interior designers, marked the second trade show of the year organized by Global-Link MP, with strong support from the Philippine Institute of Interior Designers. It followed the resounding success of the Lifestyle edition held last March 9 to 11.
While the initial leg of this grand event focused on lifestyle and residential spaces, Interior & Design Manila Hospitality turned the spotlight onto the dynamic world of hospitality and commercial spaces. It showcased emerging trends and innovations within the hospitality industry, featuring an impressive array of new designs, products, and services from all corners of the country. The event served as a nexus for interior design experts and enthusiasts to connect, share ideas, and network with contemporaries and industry giants.
Held in conjunction with Beauty + Health & Wellness Manila 2023 and Hotel & Foodservice Suppliers Show 2023, Interior & Design Manila Hospitality provided a platform for professionals such as interior designers, architects, decorators, retailers, and furniture and furnishing buying groups. It was an opportunity to forge lasting relationships with potential clients and gain fresh insights through seminars and workshops conducted by industry experts.
The event was also a gateway to discovering groundbreaking brands and revolutionary products and services that are redefining the industry landscape. These innovations spanned diverse categories, from lighting, furniture, and flooring to textiles and accessories. Notable exhibitors included Exodus Printed Interiors, Boysen Philippines, and PropertyAccess Philippines.
