MANILA -- Part of SM Aura Premier in Taguig is the third SMX Convention Center as the SM Group also positions itself as the leader in hosting international meetings and conventions.
The other two are SMX Manila (beside SM Mall of Asia) and SMX Davao.
The group is also looking at building more convention centers in the Visayas and Luzon, as SM said the group is eyeing to host the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in 2015. SMX Manila was already one of the venues in last year's Asian Development Bank Annual Meeting.
Dexter Deyto, general manager at SMX Convention Center, said the group is currently building a hotel near SM Mall of Asia in time for the APEC Summit.
