SOME 10,000 visitors are expected to attend the 2014 Philconstruct Mindanao, slated for opening today, August 4, at the SMX Convention Center, SM Lanang Premier.
The organizers are expecting visitors coming from all-over Mindanao to attend the three-day event to update themselves of latest innovations and trends in the construction industry from 82 companies.

Aside from the products that will be displayed during the event, the Technoforum Mindanao will also be staged featuring the latest updates and trends in the construction industry particularly opportunities and challenges in the Asean Economic Community 2015.
