International Food Exhibition IFEX 2013: Asia's Ethnic Food and Ingredients Show at the SMX Convention Center

My family frequently visit food expos and exhibitions but it was only this year that we found out about the International Food Exhibition or IFEX which was mentioned by a friend.  IFEX 2013 is scheduled on May 16-19, 2013 so we went on the last day.

We were quite surprised that it is such a big exhibition because the ticket price is only 50 php.

The whole exhibition took up two floors of the SMX convention center.

Aside from the map as an aid, it was very organized because the exhibitors are arrange alphabetically.

Our favorite is the Japan section.  Well, we also buy Taiwan products but none of them showed up.

For the religious, there is a prayer room too!  I'm impressed that the organizers thought of everything for the convenience of participants and visitors alike.
