CREATE Philippines is an annual industry promotion platform that will showcase the capabilities of the Philippines’ Creative Industries as a driver of economic growth and a high-potential export sector. Coinciding with the 66th edition of Manila FAME, the show will help catalyze the country’s active participation in the global creative economy.

For its maiden edition, CREATE Philippines will cover the country’s Content Industry with focus on fast growing sectors, such as Visual Arts & Graphic Design, Advertising Content & Production, Film & Animation, Digital Games and Apps, Music and Performing Arts, and Communication Design.

CREATE Philippines Islands of Makers

The Philippines enjoys a well-deserved international reputation for creativity. Similar to its scattered islands, the creative industries cover a wide array of sub-sectors including advertising, animation, architecture, crafts, cultural heritage activities, design, film, literature, music, new media, performing arts, publishing, and visual arts.

Aiming to harness this pool of creativity, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) through the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) has launched the “The Philippines Creative Industry,” two simultaneous trade shows that will promote the lucrative economic potential of the country’s creative industries and its subgroups.
