With the leisure marine industry in the Philippines gathering pace, IBI has been informed that the dates for the 10th Philippine Boat Show & Nautical Lifestyle Expo & Conference (Sea-Ex) have changed. The event was due to be held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City from March 9-11, but will now take place from October 5-7, 2018.

A spokesman for the organisers told IBI: “The dates have been changed to October. The changes on the schedule are in line with our continued partnerships with the several government agencies in the areas of tourism and maritime departments.”

He added: “The new show is scheduled for October 5-7, 2018. The new dates will coincide with the recently proclaimed Maritime and Archipelagic Nation Awareness Month (MANA MO), a month-long celebration with the goal of harmonising and synchronising programmes and activities that will raise national consciousness on maritime and archipelagic issues and policies.
