DTI Bicol – Exhibitors in the recently concluded 17th OKB-Regional Trade Fair 2013 brought in PhP29.4M sales, 37 percent higher than last year’s PhP18.6M.

A joint project with the OKB Association, Inc., PhilExport, Rural Micro Enterprise Promotion Program (RuMEPP), DTI-CARP and the Local Government Units (LGUs), the OKB fair has become institutionalized through the years.

The high sales was attributed to a display of wider product lines from wearables and homestyle, processed foods, ceramics and pottery, furniture and fine jewelry, with 129 new products that delighted the buyers. Bicolano products have really evolved and have become world-class.

To add fun and excitement to the OKB 2013 fair, organizers gave special awards.

Best Dressed Booth went to J. Emmanuel Pastries (food), Joy Gems (non-food); while DTI-CARP Camarines Sur was the top seller. They will be freed from the participation fee of PhP10, 000.00 for next year’s OKB.

The top three sellers were DTI-CARP Camarines Sur, DTI-CARP Albay and Morin Crafts, which came from the sectors on processed foods and homestyle.
