What is MOVE Expo is all about?
The Migration, Overseas Opportunities, Visas & Employment Expo, or MOVE for short, is a trade fair featuring more than 80 companies all involved in offering services or products to Filipinos going abroad. The first MOVE Expo held in July 2009, attracted about 8,000 (verifiable) visitors on the two days it was held, despite heavy rains and an incoming typhoon.
Working on the principle that those who intend to leave the Philippines – whether for temporary or permanent migration – need correct information to make an informed decision, the Immigrant Visa Center (or IVC) is once again bringing together stakeholders in the migration industry to help Filipinos do just that.
Aside from booth exhibits and man-to-man consultations, the highlights of the 2010 MOVE Expo are panel discussions about issues that affect temporary and permanent migration. Temporary migration includes short and long-term visitors. 2010 MOVE attendees will be able to attend free migration seminars with speakers from training centers, local colleges, foreign schools, Philippine government agencies and migration consultancies – all talking about migration-related concerns.
While government agencies such as the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA), National Statistics Office (NSO) and Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) will be in attendance, exhibitors and sponsors from the private sector come from diverse industries such as:
- Migration consultancies;
- Banking and remittance companies;
- Local and foreign recruitment agencies;
- Philippine and foreign colleges and universities;
- Training centers;
- Private financing institutions;
- Health and travel insurance;
- Telecommunication firms;
- Travel agencies;
- Medical and diagnostic clinics
All these are converging with one objective in mind – to provide would-be migrants and visa applicants, the best services and options to help them migrate.
