FAME+ Market Days returns this October

FAME+ Market Days, an immersive online event organized by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), the export promotions arm of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is holding its second edition on October 20 – 21, 2022 live via Hopin.

This year’s two-day Philippine sourcing festival is expected to be more business-oriented, as it shifts its focus towards product pitching and other business-to-business (B2B) activities.

One digital marketplace

An online affair that started last year, FAME+ Market Days allows buyers from all over the world to discover premium products from top local brands and manufacturers. The event gathers local and international buyers, design enthusiasts, and Filipino manufacturers and companies to connect and network, and learn from thought leaders in design.

One of the components of this year’s event includes an expo where exhibitors present pitching videos that potential buyers can view on demand. These videos provide a glimpse into the companies’ brand story, product offerings, best practices, and processes and techniques among others.

In collaboration with local design authorities, the digital event will also unveil the latest home, fashion, and lifestyle pieces from CITEM’s product development program in Design Commune. Product design specialists Rita Nazareno and Gabby Lichauco will take part in the event to discuss the theme behind the newly developed products and the creative and production aspects behind the initiative. From the 50 companies that joined the program, more than 500 designs were developed.

The digital event will likewise feature Global Trend Ambassador Patti Carpenter and WGSN Global Trend Consultant Jacqueline Wong who will have their individual sessions to tackle macro trends and consumer profiles for future markets.

Overall, attendees can expect insightful talks, moderated segments, and live Q&A sessions with tastemakers and industry leaders, as they share their expertise on the latest trends in the home, fashion, and lifestyle sectors.

FAME+ Market Days is the culminating activity of a series of business-to-business or B2B meetings between top Filipino brands and potential buyers that will be conducted from October 17, 2022 until the last day of the online event.

FAME+ Market Days 2022 is held in partnership with the Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc. (PHILEXPORT). To register and learn more about FAME+ Market Days 2022, visit:
