ASTON Manado Hotel launches the UMKM Corner as a form of support for the development of Usaha Mikro Kecil dan Menengah (UMKM) in Indonesia. The UMKM Corner is an initiative by ASTON Manado Hotel to support UMKM in growing rapidly and being highly competitive amidst increasing business competition.

In this UMKM Corner, UMKM entrepreneurs can showcase their products exclusively. The products displayed in the UMKM Corner have undergone strict selection by the ASTON Manado Hotel team and are halal-certified.

The UMKM Corner is specially designed to provide a comfortable and supportive space for UMKM entrepreneurs to showcase their products exclusively. With the UMKM Corner, UMKM entrepreneurs can introduce their products to guests and other visitors.

Furthermore, the UMKM Corner will also serve as a platform for UMKM entrepreneurs to share experiences, knowledge, and networking with other UMKM players. We believe that the UMKM Corner can be an effective means of improving the quality and quantity of UMKM products in the Manado area and its surroundings.
