Mega Balikbayan OFW Expo is more than meets the eye.
In fact MBEX- Mega BalikBayan OFW Expo 2010 is a single event, as what it looks like, but if you’ll just dig on it, there are lots of rooms for opportunities, name it, we have it. It features business firms; either small-scale or large scale ones from different industries of different specialties. Even this enthusiast amateur business-minded guy (me) wants to be part of it; it triggers my adrenaline rush to go all the way at its full speed. Some might say that I must be kidding, but wisecracks aside, hmmmm... maybe a bit, just to step aside from intensity. That’s what it feels like when you are truly passionate not just to what you’re doing, but also to where it might take you along the long, winding road to success. It must have been an entrepreneurial mindset guys, so don’t limit your thinking. In business redundancy is better than plain profitability, always on a positive note, meaning adherence to moral beliefs is a must.
So what are you waiting for hop in this great roller coaster that is about to hit the city called Mega Balikbayan OFW Expo, happening this December 10-12, 2010 at Megatrade Halls, SM Megamall.

Today’s tourism congress only validated the impact that tourism industry can do to eradicate poverty in our country.
In the report given by Ms. Ma. Cherry Lynn Rodolfo, Economist, University of Asia and Pacific she reiterated the MULTIPLIER EFFECT of tourism to 2.5% per tourist that visits our country.
Mr. Khoo Swee Chiow, one of the speakers in the congress shared his testimony of how beautiful the Philippines is. He is a Singaporean who toured the Philippines by using kayak. He showed different pictures and the audience in the tourism congress is in awe.
There is so much to be done in order to realize this potential which we have been harping around for so many years and to different government regime that led this country. Sadly, the movement forward is nowhere to be seen.
Senator Dick Gordon made a very interesting point when he said in this important gathering, “ Lahat tayo ay magagaling, ang problema lahat tayo ay magagaling”.
What ails our industry is not the lack of talents and capabilities, instead we are hampered by all wanting to be leaders and nobody wanted to be relegated as followers.
Let us get our acts together, our potential is just there waiting to be harness to improve the lives in our country.

How times fly, literally! We were just planning it last January. We are planning how to make the once one hall event into two halls. We are planning with trepidation and excitement the increase number of exhibitors that we will accommodate and invite.
Indeed this is the corner stone of the expanded Megabalikbayan OFW Expo (MBOX), hardwork that is sprinkled with a deeper sense of commitment to educate and assist our balikbayans and ofws to find the right business and investment for them.
We know the effect if ever our deeper reason for staging this event clicks. We know that for every balikbayan and ofw that will turn into a successful businessman is a number of jobs waiting to be created, and a number of cities who will find their economic activities go up.
But most important, we know that every successful balikbayan and ofw businessman is one family saved from separation. This is the most important of all the objectives that we wanted to achieved.
Family is the atomic element that makes Filipinos strong. By forwarding MBOX, we are making the Filipinos strength stable and growing.
16 days and indeed we don’t mind if time flies faster that we expected. The faster it flies the nearer we are to the accomplishment of our objectives for this year.
More than the holiday season where the streets turned to twinkling stars because of the Christmas lights, there is something that is always happening BIGTIME in EXLINK.
Of course, I am talking about the events that we are producing, organizing and managing. It seems that the projects that we are handling happens hand-in-hand with the hustle and bustle of the season. There is this gait that every member of the organization makes. A certain energy that gives you the feeling that we are about to make things happen.
If you are in events, every day we always make things happen. As if we are miracle workers. We create in our minds the idea of how and what shape an event will be formed. After that, we work hard (physical work) to ensure that the shape that we conceived for and event takes place – that is called simply as EXCECUTION.
To show you why there is a rush; let me reveal to you that we will be having three events this December. They are:
a) Philippine Physical Therapist Association Convention, December 4-5, 2010 at Traders Hotel
b) Mega Balikbayan OFW Expo, December 10-12, 2010, Megatrade Hall, SM Megamall
c) Korean War 60th Anniversary, December 14-15, 2010 at Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Yes, a loaded schedule that is in every bit challenging and EXCITING. It keeps us on our feet and motivated to wake-up every morning knowing there is a lot of details to be coordinated and accomplished.
Yes, December as the cold air whiff in our skin and people swell in all malls and marketplace, we are at one with them with our adrenaline ticking in the Richter scale in the higher levels. Akin to earthquake, our office is shaking because of these exciting events and most of all the people in our organization Rocks!
