Carrying the theme “Co-creating Opportunities,” Panublion 2021 will kick-off on Saturday, November 13 at SM City Iloilo Activity Center in Mandurriao district, with more than a hundred exhibitors.
The five-day event, organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) 6, will provide opportunity to all micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in promoting their respective products and services, especially in market prospects.
More than 100 exhibitors from the six provinces of Western Visayas – Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan, Antique, Negros Occidental and Guimaras will showcase their various product during the event.
They will demonstrate the intricacies of their craft through craft demonstrations, including food tasting from the gourmet and artisan food brands.
“Bring home a piece of our region’s ingenuity. Let us grab this opportunity to visit the various exhibitions from each province and support local MSMEs,” said Regional Director Rebecca M. Rascon in a DTI press release.
A Grand Fashion Show featuring the work of the international lifestyle designer PJ Arañador, along with some local designers, will be one of the highlights of the trade fair’s opening day.
The exhibit will also be available online through the official DTI VI Facebook Page – DTI Region VI. Product catalogs will be posted in the page for interested buyers to choose from, and a link will be provided for them to directly interact with the seller/MSME. (PIA6-Iloilo)
