15th WORLDBEX with this year theme is Constructing the Future Green Communities through Efficient Technologies and Materials showcase premium local and international construction products was held last March 17-21 at the World Trade Center Manila, WTCMM Air-conditioned tent and Philippine Trade Training Center. The exhibit aims to aid architects, engineers, contractors and interior designers in making better structures using eco-friendly materials.Attending this Expo for three times now has been a yearly costume for us especially to my husband. Meeting experts in each materials gives a lot of help in upgrading once knowledge on building structures. I also bump on some students exploring and good thing they are not afraid questioning everything and anything. We missed a lot in this year's exhibit since we only manage to attend on its last day, but making the most of it in getting as much as leaflets, handbooks and samples.
The Expo manage to squeeze in a lot of products this year and four hours is not enough to rummage every booth and to be honest I only manage to bookmark few of them on my busy mind. Here are some of them.

All scraps are being recycled, all used water are treated and reused and they even have dust collector on their plant. I manage to know this with their an hour product presentation.
