The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), the export promotions arm of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP), which recently entered into a partnership to help secure the foothold of Philippine design and architectural enterprises in the global scene, reinforced their alliance by supporting each other’s signature events, Manila FAME April 2016 and UAP CONEX (Convention Exhibits) 2016.

During its three-day run, UAP CONEX 2016 featured the Manila FAME Pavilion, which exhibited some of the best furniture, lighting, and home accents crafted by Filipino manufacturers.

Through the DTI-CITEM and UAP partnership, Manila FAME and Philippine MSMEs can create new networks and strengthen their current connections to UAP’s 27,000 members as well as the leading architects and builders worldwide who are linked with UAP through significant organizations such as the UIA (Union Internationales des Architectes or International Union of Architects) and ARCASIA (Architects Regional Council). Meanwhile, UAP architects can find creative inspiration and valuable ideas through Manila FAME, which features one-of-a-kind, innovative, and sustainable furniture, home furnishings, holiday gifts and décor, and fashion accessories by Filipino designers and artisans.
