WSI Makes History with the first-ever WOCEE and WOSAS
There is truly no stopping Worldbex Services International (WSI) – the country’s leading events and expositions organizer – in its bid to boost the growth of the country’s economic development. Marking another record-breaking milestone, WSI is finally opening its doors to the much-anticipated World of Consumer Electronics Expo (WOCEE) and the World of Safety and Security Expo (WOSAS) today, September 21 at the World Trade Center Metro Manila.
As both events embody a trailblazing chapter in the history of local expositions, the opening ceremony of the co-located events is expected to be graced by VIP personalities including PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, DND Sec. Delfin Lorenzana, DTI Usec. Teodoro Pascua, National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council Executive Director Ricardo Jalad together with WSI’s Joseph Ang, Levi Ang, Ar. Francisco Flameño Jr., Jill Aithnie Ang, Rene Ramos, and Tessie Roque.
For over two decades, WSI has elevated the quality of life of countless Filipinos through world-class trade shows that not only bring within reach topnotch consumer products and services but also, cultivate dynamic economic opportunities for trade players. From construction and design to food and tourism, WSI now turns its focus on consumer technology as well as safety and security with WOSAS and WOCEE – both of which are the first of its kind.
Armed with an encompassing foresight, WSI knows that the backbone of any great nation is its capacity to safeguard the protection of its citizens. With this concept in mind, WOSAS was envisioned to respond to the growing need to improve the quality of safety and security of Filipinos. That is, by serving as a premium venue to showcase state-of-the-art technologies that could provide reliable and durable protection from imminent dangers and security threats.
Dividing a total of close to 10,000sqm of exhibition space into themed areas of Security and Surveillance, Fire and Safety, Smart Home and Building, as well as Energy Saving and Electric Automation, the first-ever WOSAS features over 100 exhibitors; as part of the highlights today, in the same day as the declaration of the National Earthquake Drill, the organizers have teamed up with JCI Manila for the National Disaster Responders Challenge Meet and Greet.
Advancing the present
As technology continues to evolve at an unprecedented rate, WSI believes that we should not get left behind. In this regard, WOCEE was conceptualized to serve as a premium consumer tech and innovation hub. One that not only serves as one-stop shop for the latest tech goods but also, a platform where consumers, innovators, and entrepreneurs alike can come together for productive exchange of information and potential business opportunities.
Set to take over as part of close to 10,000sqm of exhibition space, WOCEE also boasts of over 100 exhibitors hailing from countries such as China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and the US. The event has several highlights including MSI’s VR Lounge, VEX Robotics Competition in partnership with MRSP, product launches and seminars.
Engaging the people
Known for delivering highly experiential expositions, WSI ensures that the first-ever WOCEE and WOSAS will allow visitors to immerse in the same world-class trade show experience that all its past shows have offered. As such, highlighting WOCEE and WOSAS are the exciting pocket events and activities that are presented in partnership with leading companies, prestigious organizations, as well as government institutions.
Among which include the Mechatronics and Robotics Society of the Philippines’ Robotics competition. Organized annually by MRSP to promote robotics among the youth, this year’s highly anticipated Robotics competition will be held at WOCEE for the first time and will have categories for both high school and grade school entrants.
On the other hand, sure to add an exciting component to WOCEE and WOSAS are the line-up of free seminars and workshops that aim to impart basic yet relevant information and niche knowledge in the field of tech innovation and safety. Furthermore, visitors are encouraged to watch out for product demos from leading brands for an exclusive peek into products and services that are changing the way we live. Plus, visitors would be delighted to know that raffle segments at WOCEE and WOSAS will be held as a way for the organizers and exhibitors to give back to the community.
Ongoing until September 24, from 10am-8pm at the World Trade Center Manila, WSI has officially opened its doors to the future. For those who are engaged in electronics and technology, don’t miss the chance to take part in WOCEE. Meanwhile, those who are seeking to elevate their safety and security abilities and measures are encouraged to take advantage of WOSAS. Admission is free.
