Liliw footwear invades Iloilo

ILOILO CITY, Nov. 12 (PNA) –The United Footwear Association (UFA) of Region IV-A will hold a product exhibition and market matching with local distributors and/or buyers here, in coordination with the Department of Trade and Industry Region VI.

The UFA will have a simultaneous product exhibition of footwear from Liliw, Laguna in front of the Iloilo Freedom Grandstand and at the covered walkway of the Iloilo Provincial Capitol from 9am to 6pm on November 13, 2015.

Liliw is dubbed as the ‘Footwear Capital of Laguna.’

“The Ilonggos are privileged for this product exhibition. This will provide the local market a chance to buy reasonably priced footwear and might as well open prospects for sub-contracting,” said DTI VI OIC-Regional Director Rebecca M. Rascon.

The exhibitors arrived in Iloilo on Thursday for a six-day product exhibition in Sta. Barbara in line with the 117th Cry of Sta. Barbara and for the celebration of the Kahilwayan Festival.

On Saturday morning, the group will have a sales blitz in leading malls here before leaving for Manila. (PNA)
