Being myself of Cambodian origin and having worked alongside @sabaydara for @evaanmarket (who organize this event), it is with great pleasure that I will be there.
You will be able to find in the Concept-Store of the event sustainable and ethical products made in Cambodia that are just fabulous and that I highly recommend.
