These seminars, called “technoforums,” have been regular features of Philsconstruct, an annual expo series organized by the Philippine Contractors Association (PCA), with ACEL as co-organizer. Dedicated to the country’s construction industry, this yearly series usually starts with a Luzon leg, followed by stops in Cebu and Davao, and then culminates in a grand expo in Metro Manila which is attended by the construction industry’s movers and shakers. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, PCA, beginning last year, decided to hold the event online, dubbing it as “Philconstruct VX” to highlight its being an online gathering. The ongoing event which began on Thursday, November 4, and will end on Sunday, November 7, is the fourth staging of this virtual expo.
