The trade fair is supported by SM Supermalls, Airspeed, Amazing Philippines Digital Economy Corporation (APDEC0, Filipino Online Professional Service Cooperative (FOPSCo), Go Negosyo, Highly Succeed, French Baker, Philippine Airlines, and many more.

Being the lead private sector partner of the DTI and the Philippine Commission on Women to advance the women’s agenda in the APEC and ASEAN regions, WomenBizPH has been the leading voice of Filipinas in commerce and has provided a platform to discuss issues in business and possible government policies and solutions.

Established in 1997, WomenBizPH has always endeavored to help women-led and women-owned medium, small, and micro enterprises (WMSMEs) grow and become more sustainable. It seeks to promote WMSMEs via networking through the use of technology, and by bringing them closers to institutions where they can have access to the market, tools, finance, and guidance on business reengineering and change management.

On 06 December 2021, WomenBizPH established the Women Strong Network — an organization with 120 WMSMEs as founding members and representatives from WomenBizPH, with the DTI serving as technical advisors. The Women Strong Network aspires to build the capacity of WMSMEs for business continuity planning and develop a network for their sustained knowledge building, exchange, and innovation.
