MATA Expo 2017 Press Conference at Plantation Bar in Makati

 

Mata Expo will be coming back to the Philippines after three successful events in the country, the last one being in Cebu last year.  This unique event celebrates cultural diversity through a trade show with exciting features and attractions, and once again it will open its gates at One Esplanade SM Central Business Park this coming  weekend, February 4, 2017.  A press conference was held recently at The Plantation Bar in Makati to unveil the many great things in store for all attendees.

MATA Expo is a consistently anticipated event attended by thousands of people not only from Manila, but from all over the Philippines and all over the world, particularly those from the  deaf and hard-of-hearing people who are excited and proud in organizing and taking part in this unique occasion.

 

 

MATA Expo has been a multicultural trade show that promotes many worthy causes, in particular, fostering awareness for issues regarding deaf and hard-of-hearing people and raising funds for breast cancer cure research. MATA Expo has toured all over the world, spreading the message of multiculturalism in the US and Canada, and now in the Philippines.

 

 

Lots of events, features, contests, attractions are in store for everyone this coming weekend, so make sure to get your tickets early for this yearly international event.
