Abanse Negrense! The Negros Trade Fair is back at the Glorietta Activity Center with a theme appropriately called Hidlaw

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The 36th Negros Trade Fair (NTF) welcomes all at the event that puts the spotlight on proudly Negrense products created with skilled craftsmanship. NTF has over 60 participating exhibitors all ready to boast their creations.

It's time to reconnect with each other as the 36th Negros Trade Fair: Hidlaw showcases the best of Negros food, fashion, craftsmanship, and many other products and experiences.

The theme Hidlaw is very appropriate as we do have quite a lot to catch up after the years of hiatus due to the Covid-19 or Coronavirus pandemic. Hidlaw in Hiligaynon means longing or yearning or missing.

The ringing of the bell during the opening ceremonies at the trade fair means that the Negros Trade Fair: Hidlaw is now officially open.

The 36th run of the fair, after two years of inactivity, is a highly appreciated event to help  MSMEs of the Negros province to recover, and we are so glad that the first day was a huge success because I've seen and heard a lot of booths getting flocked by customers. I'm sure the event, ongoing until the 25th  of September, will continue to be a crowd-pleaser for people, especially from Manila, really need to once again immerse themselves in quality products, and the entrepreneurs of Negros are among the finest producers of well-loved creations for both food and non-food.

Appropriately, Hidlaw is a Hiligaynon word which means "to yearn, to long, have a strong desire (for something) to long something in the past with melancholy, nostalgically. 

Stephanie Hilado Lindaya, the artist who designed the poster artwork for the event,  said she missed people flocking the booths, hearing the words " at ma tahum!", "namit-namit gid ya!", and "nahidlaw gid ko sang inasal" . For most Negrenses in Manila, it's a homecoming!

It's about time we bring back the glorious days! Abanse Negrense!

Congratulations to the organizers, Association of Negros Producers and the provincial government of Negros Occidental, of the 36th Negros trade fair.

Be part of the longest-running provincial trade fair happening this September 20-25 at Glorietta Activity Center in Makati city.
