SMX Convention Center Manila has been named by the World M.I.C.E Awards as the Best Convention Center in the Philippines for 2021.
World M.I.C.E. Awards is an annual citation to honor the outstanding leaders in the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions industry.
With over 17,000 sq.m. of leasable space, SMX Manila remains as the largest privately-owned convention center in the country.
Boasting of four flexible halls, five pillarless function rooms and 15 meeting rooms, it has hosted the biggest M.I.C.E events in the country, including the Manila Book Fair, PhilConstruct, World Food Expo (WOFEX), Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA), Philippine Franchise Expo, Philippine International Furniture Show, Philippine Dental Association, Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers of the Philippines (IIEE), WORLDBEX, Philippine College of Physicians and Kerygma, among others.
Safety protocols are continuously enforced within the facilities: less physical contact; a strict policy on wearing of face mask; contactless Health Declaration and Contact Tracing forms; monitored crowd movement via CCTV with face recognition function and event marshals; reduced seating capacity to implement safe crowd management; equipping building staff with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE); frequent disinfection of venues and high-contact surfaces; and making use of live-streaming platforms for hybrid events.
SMX Convention Center has seven properties located in Manila, Cebu, Bacolod, Davao, and Olongapo City. It is opening its 8th property in Clark in April.
