Media Sneak peek of Manila Fame 2017.

Earlier today, I attended the media sneak peek of Manila Fame 2017. I've been to Manila Fame once back in 2015

Manila Fame is a bi-annual business sourcing platform of export ready and finely crafted furniture and home furnishings, holiday gifts and decor, and fashion accessories. With a wide array of products brandishing Philippine craftsmanship at its best selections of products and eight show scenography, the 65th edition of Manila FAME will open its doors to international trade buyers on April 21-23, 2017 at the World Trade Center, Metro Manila.

The Center for International Trade expositions and Missions (CITEM), the export promotions arm of the Department of Trade and Industry (DRI) is the proud organizer of the Manila FAME --- the second longest-running trade show in the Asia-Pacific, and the only trade event in the Philippines approved by Union des Foires Internationales, a Paris-based association of trade fair organizers founded 90 years ago in Italy.
