Industry expo on beauty, health and wellness fuel collaboration in preparation for ASEAN integration

Sunday, September 01, 2013



As the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) prepare for full integration by 2015 under a single ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), which is one of the main objectives of the region’s economic integration, a key challenge is to find balance with regard to coherence and cooperation among member-countries.

However, the emergence of many relevant industry expos and conferences, particularly in the beauty, health and wellness sectors, is seen as the key ingredient in providing that balance and more importantly, make the planned integration a seamless and thorough activity.

This collaborative economic environment among nations of varying race and cultures will be unmistakably evident in a one-of-a-kind event called “International Beauty, Health and Wellness Expo,” which will be held on September 26-28, 2013 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, Philippines.

For one, it will be a great platform for local players to finally hit the international expo scene where they can showcase and highlight their readiness to be globally competitive, with products and services ready to appeal to the global market—or at least on the ASEAN level, initially.

On the other hand, the expo can provide the perfect opportunity for international companies to gain a foothold in the local market by partnering with Philippine firms they can rely on as part of their expansion efforts and growth of their business in the country. This is good news for the local economy, for these possible economic linkages between local and international firms spell good things for players in the beauty, health and wellness industry and also the overall medical tourism in the country.

The “International Beauty, Health and Wellness Expo,” organized by Ex-Link Management and Marketing Services Corporation, is expected to attract more than 10,000 buyers/ trade   visitors  from here and abroad, and participated in by more than 200 of the country’s established and up-and-coming movers and shakers in the Health and Beauty, Fitness and Style, and Wellness and Relaxation circles. It will be the perfect avenue for sponsors and participants to meet, converge, exchange ideas and knowledge, establish market linkages, collaborate and agree on mutually beneficial transactions with the hope of growing the the industry further and make it one of the strongest business sectors in the region.

A key objective of the single ASEAN community, under the Initiative for ASEAN Integration or ‘IAI,’ is to narrow the development divide between countries in the region and enhance ASEAN’s competitiveness as a region. Through this expo, we envision the participants working together to help find ways of strengthening areas of collaboration to grow their respective businesses and at the same time, tap other economic potentials that will help the health, beauty and wellness industries flourish even more in this century,” explains Mitch Ballesteros, Chief Executive Officer of Ex-Link Events.
