Businesses are increasing their sales and forging stronger ties with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the Philippines by networking.

Networking can help boost your business. It allows business owners and entrepreneurs to build new relationships and create more opportunities for business growth.

One of the best ways to network and meet like-minded individuals is by joining groups and events such as trade shows and conferences which are returning in-person across the Philippines after over two years of disruption due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Attending these business gatherings helped business owners of small and large companies increase their brand awareness and sales, generate quality leads, develop new business relationships, and many more.

Networking events and trade shows, like the 12th Philippine SME Business Expo (PHILSME) which goes live again and returns in-person this November 2022, are great places to meet potential clients and business partners to grow your business.

Here are three companies that found success by networking with PHILSME:

Finest Media PH

Peter Daniel Veriña, Owner and Creative Director of Finest Media PH

Finest Media PH provides Live Event Streaming and Broadcasting Services, Video Production, and Digital Marketing Services.

“My team and I are beyond grateful for the opportunities that PHILSME gave us, including the projects and closed deals that came to us after our previous online events,” Peter Daniel Veriña, the owner and creative director of Finest Media PH said during the 5th PHILSME Business Networking Meeting in August.

“Now that (the expo) is going to happen face-to-face, I’m more than excited to meet and know everyone in and out of our industry and to simply connect with businesses from all over the Philippines. This is something you do not want to miss.”

We achieved these goals and more by attending the virtual event. We are really looking forward to this big event this November. All of my colleagues say that the expo is really promising. See you there!” Maiza Fernandez of Investree said.

“This year, our company is joining the expo again because we’d love to finally meet everyone face-to-face and introduce our services to more clients,” Cabarrubias adds.
