Kahimunan Regional Trade Fair opens in SM City CDO Uptown  

Kahimunan Regional Trade Fair 2022 is back!  

After two years of conducting the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-organized regional trade fair virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kahimunan Regional Trade Fair 2022 officially lauched its physical set-up in SM City CDO Uptown on August 19, 2022.  

The launching was followed by the Design Upgrade Culmination Program for Local Designers in collaboration with the Design Center of the Philippines (DCP).  

The trade fair features more than 50 MSME-exhibitors and over 100 non-food and FDA-approved food products in Northern Mindanao. Participating MSMEs are recipients of the various DTI programs: One Town, One Product (OTOP), Shared Service Facilities (SSF), Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), and Rural Agro-enterprise Partnership for Inclusive Development and Growth (RAPID Growth) Special Project.  

For the first time, the regional trade fair also features local business technology incubator, USTP CDO B.i.t.e.s & Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, and 5 local tech startups assisted by the agency’s Regional Inclusive Innovation Centers (RIICs) Program: Bentamo, KaHero, Wela School Systems, Brooky, and Avodah.  

Aside from the display and selling, mallgoers can also witness various featured events such as the RAPID Day, Provincial Office’s Day, Tech Start-Ups Pitching, Northern Mindanao Coffee Business Matching, and Merchandiser’s Event in collaboration with the Board of Investments (BOI)-Cagayan de Oro.  

Kahimunan Regional Trade Fair runs from August 19 to 29, 2022. It is one of the core events of Cagayan de Oro City’s Higalaay Festival.
