Manila FAME is a bi-annual event organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) through its export promotion arm, the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM). It is also made possible thanks to the support of Antique Congresswoman Loren Legarda.

“Though not familiar to many, Manila FAME is already one of the best-kept secret sourcing hubs of big global names in the industry. With its decades of experience, Manila FAME has witnessed many locally-manufactured products to be featured and sold in major boutiques and retail outlets all around the globe,” said Pauline Suaco-Juan, Executive Director of the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM).

As a melting pot of Filipino creativity, Manila FAME is the Philippines’ premier sourcing destination for high-quality artisanal products. It serves as a cultivating ground and springboard for innovative, top-of-the-line Philippine products and designers to break through key international markets.
