The Negosyo Fair 2017 was an event with a much bigger purpose than just a one-time gathering. This is an event organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) for the 450 Negosyo Center Business Counselors in the Philippines. They were gathered to learn about new business insights, data and information that they can share to their hometowns and specific negosyo center offices.
Who are the Negosyo Center Business Counselors?
To provide some background, the Negosyo Center serves as a hub for entrepreneurs where they can go and ask for advise regarding business opportunities and strategies. So, our Negosyo Center business counselors should be properly well-informed about relevant and up-to-date business insights. For they will act as consultants to the businesses from their specific regions who will visit their respective negosyo centers. You try to visit your negosyo center to find out more.
How Negosyo Fair 2017 started
Usec. Zeny Maglaya is also at the event to greet all the Negosyo center business counselors who went all the way to Manila for this event.
One of the speakers during the event was Ms. Shamcey Supsup who is a beauty queen, architect and an entrepreneur. She shared her experiences from the past on how she was once an employee and how she transitioned to an entrepreneur. She discussed the pain points of being both.
Other Negosyo Fair 2017 activities
After Usec. Maglaya and Shamcey shared their expertise, the morning event ended. This was the signal to start the other pocket events within SM Megatrade hall which happened simultaneously. There are more seminars and forums that happened that the negosyo center counselors had to disperse.
Luckily, the eCommerce industry is properly represented by the Digital Commerce Association of the Philippines (DCOM). Shopinas ,as a part of DCOM, was part of their forum along with other notable online platform provider. You can check out the photos during the DCOM forum here.
