DTI's National Trade Fair Digital Mall

In lieu of the usual National Trade Fair (NTF) organized annually, the Department of Trade and Industry - Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion (DTI-BDTP) is launching the NTF Digital Mall. This is in 
response to the unprecedented challenges faced by micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) 
during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has adversely impacted their operations.

To help MSMEs future-proof their businesses as they pivot to online selling, the NTF Digital Mall is a 

platform that offers continuous promotion of the food and non-food products from the different regions, amid the physical restrictions of the pandemic. A project of the DTI-BDTP in collaboration with the 

DTI-Regional and Provincial Offices, the NTF Digital Mall is an e-commerce platform inside the UB 

GlobalLinker site.

Formally opened on December 14, the NTF Digital Mall, like all national trade fairs, showcases the best products of 223 MSMEs from all parts of the country. Featured products include processed food and beverages, gifts and souvenirs, houseware and decor, fashion accessories, wearables, as well as health and fitness products. 

For a more convenient online shopping experience, the NTF Digital Mall features a product catalog 

with a facility to search for a specific product or product category. For easier transactions, buyers can 

connect with the MSMEs via the Viber app for secure instant messaging. Visitors will also have access 

to DTI webinars, and can read about the participating exhibitors' inspirational success stories. 

Digital Mall Features for MSMEs

The NTF Digital Mall is hosted on UnionBank GlobalLinke, a free and innovative platform that helps MSMEs grow online with tools for efficient business management and network expansion. It is 

distinct from other e-commerce platforms as it is an all-in-one accessible platform that enables MSMEs to connect to both local and global B2B and B2C partners, suppliers, and customers. It has networking 

capabilities to help MSMEs grow and manage their business. It offers immediate access to financial 

service providers, point of sale, accounting, inventory, human resources, tax and payroll services, 

supply chain management, and B2B and B2C marketplaces.

Some of the business features offered on the NTF Digital Mall that MSMEs can readily use are:

    E-commerce store for free with its inventory management and data analysis tools.
