The Philippines Coconut Authority (PCA) in partnership with the PCA Employees Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PCAEMPC) will launch the 1st International Coconut Festival and Trade Fair on August 28-31, 2014 at the “Megatrade Hall”, Hall 2, Summit, 5th Floor, Mega B SM Megamall EDSA corner Julia Vargas Street, Mandaluyong City.
The festival is a bold move for the annual event to expand the reach of the marketing and promotional activities in the international market arena particularly the ASEAN. As a main activity, the event will highlight the 2015 ASEAN Integration and will be a focal avenue for discussion on regional trading and cooperation. A day of appreciation for the assisting local and international agencies that partnered in the post disaster and rehabilitation efforts of Typhoons Pablo and Yolanda affected areas will add a special meaning to this occasion which will compliment the Annual National Coconut Week Celebration as provided under Presidential Proclamation No. 142, Series of 1987.
A trade fair that will showcase products, services and programs that enhance the commercial, agro-development, culinary and other gains of the coconut industry will be organized. The marketing hub will certainly attract the visitors of our popular venue to partake and appreciate the many valuable aspects of the coconut. The trade fair will also be complimented by various daily on-venue events such as symposiums, cooking festival and fashion show.
In this regard, PCAEMPC are cordially inviting you to urge interested party/exhibitor to make your reservation now with Ms. Loueda N. Deona and Ms. Alma P. Ruiz, at Telephone No. (02) 920-2968/Trunkline No. (02) 928-4500 - 09 local No. 101, 103 or 104.
