A wedding fair roadshow slated in the country’s top 10 cities from February to October is boosting the Philippines’ image as a global wedding and honeymoon destination.

Dubbed “Kasalang Filipino,” the event will showcase the different wedding customs and traditions in each of the 10 cities and surrounding localities, promote their products and services, highlight the latest trends in wedding fashion and practices, and serve as a tourist attraction itself to both the local and global market.

Kasalang Filipino is being promoted globally through ABS-CBN and Kasal.com, the event’s presentors.

“Now on its third year, Kasalang Filipino 2007 is like a national celebration of Filipino wedding artistry in its finest tradition – from food to flowers, fabric, and festivities,” said Kasal.com head Mathel Ong.

The Philippines’ rise as a global wedding and honeymoon destination has been getting a big boost from Kasal.com, which is being accessed by people from all over the world, a good number of them joining the Kasalang Filipino during its 10-city, cross-country, year-round run.

Kasalang Filipino 2007 will be staged at the Tagaytay’s Olivarez Convention Center on Feb. 23-25, Legazpi’s Pepperland Hotel and Metro Gaisano on April 27-28, Dumaguete’s Bethel Guest House on May 25-26, Iloilo’s Amigo Terrace Hotel on June 15-17, Tarlac’s Ninoy Aquino Center on June 22-23, Cagayan de Oro’s Limketkai Mall on July 12-15, Davao’s NCCC Mall on Sept. 14-16, San Pablo’s One-Stop Shop on Sept. 28-29, Makati’s The Enterprise Center on Oct. 11-12, and Cebu’s Ayala Center on Oct. 19-21.
