DevelopmentAid will attend Asian Development Bank’s business forum

September 4, 2023 – DevelopmentAid is proud to announce that it will be attending in-person the 11th annual ADB Business Opportunities Fair taking place from October 4-5, 2023 at the ADB’s headquarters in Manila, the Philippines.

The ADB Business Opportunities Fair is a one-stop forum for consultants, contractors, suppliers, and civil society organizations working in the field of sustainable development to network and discuss ongoing and future ADB projects. The ADB Business Opportunities Fair is the perfect place to meet with ADB specialists in a wide variety of sectors, including energy, transport, education, finance, health, public management, agriculture, and climate change.

In addition to networking with ADB suppliers and consultants, attendees of the Business Opportunities Fair will also have the opportunity to hear presentations from ADB insiders on how to qualify for ADB contracts and projects, discover business opportunities, and meet with both ADB sector specialists as well as with ADB staff. Attendees of the Business Opportunities Fair will also learn the best ways to prepare bids and proposals as well as get an inside look at ADB’s policies and procedures for procuring services and recruiting consultants.

As excitement is high for this year’s in-person ADB Business Opportunities Fair, DevelopmentAid is looking forward to learning from some of the most talented professionals in the development sector about how ADB operates as well as networking and discussing business opportunities with NGOs, government officials, trade commissioners, academics, contractors, suppliers, and consultants from across the Asia-Pacific region and around the world.


Representing DevelopmentAid at the ADB Business Opportunities Fair will be our business development managers Mariana Soltan and Julia Tsertsvadze. Anyone interested in networking beforehand or in setting up a face-to-face meeting at the fair is kindly asked to reach out with an email to

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) was established in 1966 and has been a leader in developing a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and Pacific region ever since. Three years ago, ADB’s Procurement, Portfolio, and Financial Management Department (PPFD) transitioned to a virtual format, so this year’s Business Opportunities Fair will mark the first time that the event is conducted in-person since the pandemic.
