After 2 long years, the UAP Construction Expo (CONEX) is finally back! The UAP CONEX 2022 was held at SMX Convention Center last April 20-23. For four days, the exhibit was packed with architects, architecture students, contractors, end users and participating companies – one of them is Amici Mercantile Inc.
The exhibit was free admission to all. Invites were sent via emails and calls from the architects. Soft copies of posters were sent as well. Since we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, the security guards made sure guests and participants were wearing face masks properly. They also checked everyone’s temperature using the thermometer scanner at the entrance.
Many companies participated in the UAP’s 47th Convention Exhibit. All of them showcased their brand’s products and proudly highlighted their features to the people who dropped by the booth. Some even had interactive games and activities like raffles and painting sessions. Talks were held on the 3rd day, Major Sponsors like Boysen had their presentation during the talk. There were also performances at the opening ceremony and 3rd day of the exhibits. The event was filled with fun and excitement!
Amici Mercantile Inc. joined the event again after a decade and it was really a great opportunity for the company to exhibit its products. We had four booths and each booth was designed for the four brands we featured in the event – A.O. Smith, Maytronics, Pentair Sta-rite and Atmor.
Our products stood out because of how they differ from the other brands and how they promote functionality for everyday living. Most booths in CONEX 2022 were about woods, mirrors, tiles and paints. Distinctively, our booths were all about home appliances. A.O. Smith is well known in water heaters, being the largest heating company in the world. But it is our first time exhibiting in the Philippines the rich range of A. O. Smith environmental products, from air purifiers and water purifiers, through water softeners and whole home filters, to Vitamin-C showers. Atmor also offers high-quality water heaters for various applications. We exhibited the “Inverter”-type digital water heaters that adjust energy use according to target temperature.
If you are looking for pool cleaners, rest assured that you can trust Maytronics, the world’s leader in pool robots. We did a live demo of pool robots. Maytronics also has Ozone Swim – the one that automates your pool chemical maintenance, and gets the clearest pools with less chlorine. Meanwhile, Pentair Sta-rite has a solution for every water problem. It has Variable Speed and Flow Pool Pumps that save 50-80% of energy costs as well as pool heaters that lengthens the swimming pool season through the rainy and cooler weather.
The UAP CONEX 2022 was a success! We were honored to be part of the exhibit and meeting professionals from the construction industry was exhilarating. Amici Mercantile Inc. will definitely join more exhibits like this to introduce our brands and products to more people.
