The two-day roadshow at Lantaka Hotel is being coordinated with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Provincial Office, Citem and the city government through the Investment Promotions Services Office.

In attendance are various SMEs that deal in processed food and beverages, jewelry and novelty items, handicraft and many other locally made products.

Manila FAME The Design and Lifestyle Event, is the country’s premier trade platform for exports and design, providing opportunities for small and medium scale entrepreneurs to showcase their products in the world market.

Manila FAME features the latest Philippine-made creations from artisans and manufacturers and is the only trade event in the country approved by UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry.

Heading the Manila FAME team is Lea Ocampo, who claimed it was her first visit to the city. “We never expect to see a beautiful city like Zamboanga. I really did not expect to be charmed by Zamboanga. For us in Manila, Zamboanga City is something mysterious, something we are afraid to visit to, but when we arrived the ‘fear’ was not true,” she said in her opening remarks.— Vic Larato
