Themed as “A Green Show“, the 2019 National Trade Fair will showcase over 250 MSMEs (micro, small & medium enterprises) from all over the Philippines to promote exhibitors whose products are green, organic and eco-friendly. The aim of this initiative is to encourage MSMEs to engage in green practices that promote efficient use of energy and resources.

FACT: Did you know that 99.6% of businesses here in the Philippines are comprised of MSMEs?

The annual four-day retail and order-taking event will showcase products such as furniture and furnishings, houseware and decor, wearables and fashion accessories, gifts and souvenirs, as well as heirloom food, and health and wellness products.

10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD COME TO THE NATIONAL FAIR:
