Welcome to the  Philippine National Trade Fair this 17-20 March 2011 (Thursday – Sunday) at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines!

National Trade Fair is led by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) and the Department of Trade and Industry’s Regional Operations and Development Group (RODG) together with the Bureau of Domestic Trade (BDT).

The Philippines is a Fiesta country, with extravagant and colorful celebrations hinged on a variety of interesting themes occurring all year round. These Fiestas embrace culture and tradition, encourage unity among the people, and serve as regional attractions that draw local and foreign tourists alike.

Known for their spectacular displays of cultural performances, Fiestas also offer opportunities for trade and a taste of the local cuisine. Tiangge, which means bazaar in Filipino vernacular, is one of the staple features found in fiestas that promote the town’s products as well as its local delicacies.

The Fiesta Region Program is NTF’s initiative to highlight a particular region and its corresponding fiestas as the theme for each succeeding edition of NTF. On its 20th year, NTF will celebrate the first SCARECROW FESTIVAL IN MANILA sponsored by Region II.
