Travel and Leisure Expo in Davao: Launched It’s First Run in Davao
Last May 13, together with my family, I saw the first ever Travel and Leisure Expo in Davao. It was the first ever launching in the city, with a masterpiece and ability in focusing the goal. The expo was really a brilliant idea for locals and tourists as well.
In participation with the different business establishments who supported the event was a good combination of shops or a one-stop shop for everyone in love with traveling. I was amazed by how the ambiance and output that come out on exploring the event. Delivering the goal as to offer the best options for a traveler or a simple tourist, this one has become the finest in its level.
Travel and Leisure Expo in Davao: How was it?
The travel expo was held in SMX Convention Center in Lanang, Davao. Located on the third floor of the mall, the entrance was very welcoming. We’re guided by the form application and encoding the sticker id. Then along the way to the big entrance was this big TLEX letters, so I got a picture with it. Although it was quite dark on the entrance, I still manage to have a pic on it. I wouldn’t miss a chance I guess.
At the entrance was this crowded people and suddenly offering me some freebies if only I have a credit card. LOL. I was going to grab it. But unfortunately, I only have a debit card which doesn’t qualify me as a prospective customer for them.
Anyways, the Travel and Leisure Expo was on the left side of the convention. There were booths from hotels representatives, travel and tour package agencies, travel organizer shop, museum, spa and the Davao Bloggers community.

How was the Experience?
Based on what I saw and experienced, the overall ambiance was really astounding.
