Negros Trade Fair 2013

As the Negros Trade Fair celebrates 28 years of existence and success, it comes back to where it all began – Makati City.   It was in 1985 that the first trade fair, then known as The House of Negros Trade Fair, was held at the then QUAD Carpark beside the Manila Garden Hotel.

For several years after that, the Negros Trade Fair moved out of Makati and travelled to Pasay City and Mandaluyong, to large venues that could accommodate its fast growing participation and patronage. This year, it will be back where QUAD Carpark used to be – Glorietta Mall.

Palm Drive Glorietta

At the Glorietta, visitors to the fair can enjoy convenient parking, wider aisles, and the bigger and better venue which can accommodate more booths.   There will be a package counter – a new addition – where shoppers can leave their bags to shop til the mall closes at 9pm.

For those who would want to get more information about the province of Negros, a tourist pavilion will be set up where the provincial government and some of the cities in the province will have information desks.

If you enjoyed Negros trade fairs before, there’s no doubt you’ll love this year’s exposition even more.   Mark the date: September 25-29, 2013 at the Glorietta Mall Activity Center, Palm Drive.
