The SMX Convention Center is a convention center in Pasay City, the Philippines. It is the largest private venue in the Philippines for trade events, industry conventions, corporate functions, and international exhibitions. The building is located right beside the SM Mall of Asia, and is considered as an important part of the Mall of Asia Complex. The SMX is owned by the SM Group of SM Prime Holdings.

Description[edit]

The SMX Convention Center is composed of 4 Exhibition Halls, 5 Function Rooms, and 14 Meeting Rooms. With a 21,000 m2 of leasable space, it may accommodate a wide array of events.[1] The function rooms have a total floor area of 7,100 m2.[2]

Since its opening last November 2007, the SMX Convention Center has successfully handled some of the largest trade events in the country, like CITEM's Manila FAME International, International Food and Beverage Expo, Global Link MP's China Products Exhibition, Manufacturing Technology World Series, and Primetrade Asia's Manila International Book Fair. The ASEAN Tourism Investment Forum 2008, the 8th International Conference of Asian Clinical Oncology Society, and just recently, the 5th National G12 Conference were also held in the SMX Convention Center.

The purpose-built design of the SMX Convention Center not only makes it adaptable for all kinds of exhibitions and conventions, it also allows the venue to accommodate major events and concerts.

In August 2008, international artist Alicia Keys' As I Am Tour, and the grand finale of GMA Network's Pinoy Idol, were held at the convention center.

In November 28-29, 2011, the 5th National G12 Conference was held in the SMX. The event used up all four Exhibit Halls and also the Function Rooms on the Third floor. Occupying almost 20,000 guests, the event exceeded the typical capacity of the Convention Center of 12,000. The four Halls were converted into one huge space, the Hall 1 into a concert stage, and the rest of the Halls filled with seats divided into 4 rows, from Hall 3 to Hall 4. The Function Rooms were also converted, but the seats were facing the LED displays placed into the walls, cinema-style.

SMX Convention Center Davao[edit]

The SMX Convention Center Davao is located at the 3rd level of the SM Lanang Premier in Davao City. It boasts of 4,745 square meters carpeted function room space that is divisible into three separate rooms. The function rooms have a total floor area of 4,476 m2.[3] The convention center is composed of five meeting rooms that can be used for small-scale corporate and social functions, company board meetings and training seminars.[4] The Pre-Function Lobby of the convention center spans a total of 1,292 square meters.[5]

SMX Convention Center Taguig[edit]

The SMX Convention Center Taguig is the third property under the SMX brand. It is located at the third and fourth levels of the SM Aura Premier at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.[6] The convention center has three fully carpeted function rooms which can be used for corporate affairs, product launches and large-scale social events.[7] The meeting rooms are located on the second floor of the SMX Convention Center Taguig.[8]

SMX Convention Center Bacolod[edit]

In a press luncheon with the Negros Press Club last March 10, 2014, Treena C. Tecson, Assistant Vice President for Public Relations of SM Hotels and Conventions, revealed that the present SM Trade Halls being finished in the Phase 2 of SM City Bacolod's redevelopment will be converted into a 4,000-seater SMX Convention Center for the city. SMX Convention Center Bacolod is expected to be open by September, 2014.[9]
