Corporate Giveaways 2014: Upbeat Economy Results in Bullish Business Gifts Industry
The Philippines is currently enjoying revived confidence from domestic and international business, as evidenced by, among other things, upgraded ratings from the world’s leading credit rating agencies. These improvements have directly resulted in an upbeat corporate gifts and rewards industry, poised to take advantage of the increased economic activity.
Hundreds of the country’s most reliable suppliers of business gift items are set to showcase their products and services at the annual Corporate Giveaways Buyers’ Show, the Philippines longest-running and most successful trade exhibition on business gifts, premiums, promotional ideas and merchandise incentives.
Now on its 27th year, the Corporate Giveaways Buyers’ Show regularly attracts purchasing managers, marketing and event professionals, HR practitioners, public relations specialists who visit the show to explore and source their year-round business gifts requirements, office solutions and even food and beverage gift options. It is scheduled on July 9-11 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
“We believe the show has become a reliable barometer of the industry’s confidence in the economy. When companies are doing well, they tend to share their success with others. One of the ways this can be seen is in the quality and quantity of the gifts that they hand out during the year.” shares Raquel Romero, President & General Manager of Worldexco, organizers of Corporate Giveaways Buyers’ Show.
Corporate Giveaways 2014 is open from 10am to 7pm. Admission is free (only visitors 18 years and above will be admitted). Interested parties can register in advance through www.corporategiveawaysbuyershow.com. Onsite registration at the SMX lobby will also be available during the event proper.
“This is the largest edition of the show in recent years, with an increase of over 50% of exhibition space occupied, compared to 2013. Out of over 100 participating companies, 30 are first-timers to the show, further indicating a boom in the gift-giving industry” adds Romero. “Visitors are sure to find what they need among the thousands of options at Corporate Giveaways 2014.”
