In case you weren’t able catch the 2013 Housing Fair at Limketkai Cagayan de Oro City which ran from September 27 – 29, here are the things that you missed.
1. The Opening Fanfare
So guess who came and opened the Housing Fair? None other than Vice President Binay himself. He officially opened the event and graced the awarding ceremony for LGUs, housing beneficiaries, homeowner associations, and other partners to the Comprehensive Land Use Program (CLUP) Zero Backlog program.
VP Binay, who is also the chairman of the Housing Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC), issued a challenge to the LGUs and the organizations present during the event: to ensure that everyone in their communities will have homes.

2. The Exhibitors
A total of 10 private developers and builders, 6 different suppliers of construction materials, and a couple of banks all gathered in Limketkai Rotunda to promote and showcase their different projects and products. Among the exhibitors was Primavera Residences, the affordably luxurious and eco-friendly condominium in uptown Cagayan de Oro.
