WOFEX – Country’s Biggest Food Show Comes To Iloilo

World Food Expo (WOFEX) brought the country’s biggest and most prestigious food show to Iloilo City last February 23 – 25, 2017 at Iloilo Convention Center participated by local and foreign businesses and consumers.

Iloilo is rising on the horizon of businesses in Western Visayas. With the progressive development, its rapid growth in its economy shifted the attention of the country and the world. More hotels, resorts, and restaurants have opened up as local and foreign tourists flock the city and province.

The challenge in the city is creating sustainable tourism industry worthy of international interest. As a response to the challenge, WOFEX aims to plow the ground for global exposure and new markets, trends and techniques to support business investors and owners.

The whole event includes training programs on Catering, Baking and Pastries, Restaurant, and Digital Marketing for Real Estate and HoReCa, Hospitality, Food and Beverage and Tourism Industries. The three-day event is packed with training sessions with hands-on and a large food expo. For the schedule and topics in the training sessions, see the event flyer below. Book Latte is honored to take part in this event.


Book Latte is Iloilo’s first library café. It was recognized as the Best Concept Café during the 10th and 11th National Product Quality Excellence Awards. It supports local book clubs, writers, arts and artists. It is also the forerunner of book swap tradition in the city starting last December 2016. More than anything else, it is an avenue where good books, delicious food, flavorful coffee, remarkable art pieces and great minds meet.

 Book Latte is honored and grateful to fully open a new library café in Festive Walk Parade, Iloilo Business Park, Megaworld, Mandurriao, Iloilo City and serve more Ilonggos and visiting tourists. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram (booklatteiloilo) for the official announcement of our grand opening. More milestones are coming up to our very own library café.

Iloilo is indeed fronting more business and tourism opportunities more than ever. WOFEX stretches the city with trainings and expo to advance through this event joined by the country’s businessmen, investors and consumers.
