5 Reasons to Go to Mabuhay Germany 2019 in BGC
The bi-annual trade fair Mabuhay Germany is coming up this May 25 to 26, 2019, at the Bonifacio High Street Central, Taguig! Come to the free event and meet with German companies, find job fair companies, dine at the food and drink concessionaires, or win at the many raffle prizes to be given away!
Mabuhay Germany is the flagship event organized by the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (GPCCI) every other year. This year’s theme is “New Heights” to replicate the maibaum tradition of erecting a pole decorated with ribbons, emblems to symbolize a tree in spring.
When we think of Germany, we’d almost always associate it with sausages and beer– and those are exactly what will greet you at the event! You can also learn about other German dishes such as a black forest cake, the pretzel, sauerkraut, and gummy bears!
Exhibitor Booths and B2B
Over 30 brand exhibitors will be in attendance to showcase German innovation and manufacturing, culture and lifestyle to build even more relationships between Germany and the Philippines.
Dr. Bodo Goerich, Vice President of GPCCI, stated during the press conference, “Mabuhay Germany is a ‘Thank You’ from the German community to our host country, the Philippines and the Filipinos…it is a bit of giving back, showing our industry, products, and culture.”
