Since it was first held, KATUMBIRI Expo has brought huge impact in the Indonesian creative industry as it helps attracting people’s interest in buying handicrafts products. Handicrafts are part of the tangible cultural heritage of the country, thus this culture component can not only function to preserve the heritage but also lead to economic development.
The 10th KATUMBIRI Expo was sucessfully presented with the theme “The Role of Young Generation in Equality in Digital Era”. This theme was expected to encourage the younger generation, especially Indonesian young girls to keep innovating and improving their products to be able to compete in the emerging digital era. This exhibition also celebrates the upcoming Indonesia Mother’s Day to promote the women’s role in the global economy.
Located in the Cenrawasih Room, KATUMBIRI Expo 2022 took place from 16 to 20 November 2022, featuring various handcrafts products from all over Indonesia. KATUMBIRI Expo was supported by Indonesian owned stater enterprises, private companies and the actors of small Micro Medium Enterprises.
