We are proud to be the official Digital Media Sponsor for the 2nd year in a row for Canada Philippine Fashion Week (CPFW) which is set to take place here in Toronto on June 9th through June 12, 2014.


Last year we were brought on board and we were so pleased at being part of something that we knew was just so special. This year we were asked back and we are simply tickled.


Yesterday, the official Toronto Press Conference (They had one in Manila as well), kicked off at the  Toronto’s Shangri-La Hotel the official hotel of CPFW.


This year the presenting title sponsor is Philippine Airlines. And its such a perfect fit, considering that there was a 30% increase in interest to travel to The Philippines thanks to the brand awareness of CPFW.


Executive Director of Founder of CPFW, the magnetic Jeff Rustia presented the impressive results of the 2013 Economic Impact & Strategic Alliance Study done by Enigma Research and Festival & Events Ontario, reflecting the eye-popping success of their inaugural year.


Economic Impact of 2013 Canada Philippine Fashion Week in Toronto (all numbers are in Canadian dollars):


Resulted in an economic impact of $5.5 million  in Toronto, Canada.

New spending was equivalent to supporting 92 full time/full year jobs.

Local residents spend $2.2 million on products and services while attending CPFW.

Non-locals spent $6.8 million while visiting Toronto to attend CPFW.

Hotel accommodations in Toronto, were the highest at $2.8 million.

And of course let’s not forget that Festival Events Ontario also awarded Canada Philippine Fashion Week the award for the Best New Festival Of The Year!
