EXHIBITORS AT the Davao Agri Trade Expo (DATE) 2017 reported a collective net sales of more than P436 million during the event held Sept. 21-23 in Davao City. “Every end of the expo, sales (reports) were given by the exhibitors. But we know it can happen that the closure of (other) sales does not happen right away,” said Wilfred “Eboy” T. Teves, vice-president for industry of the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (DCCCII), the lead organizer of the annual activity. Mr. Teves also said that foot traffic was higher this year at 9,534 compared to 8,665 in 2015, with both years highlighting the livestock, hogs, poultry, gamefowl and aquaculture industries. For next year, DCCCII is planning to feature crops, possibly with focus on banana. “Not certain which one yet,” Mr. Teves said. He added that some P2.5 million worth of advanced bookings from exhibitors have already been placed for DATE 2018. — Maya M. Padillo
