Lumawag also announced that Globe Communications and Banco de Oro (BDO) are their partners in the celebration. "Merong raffle draw ang Globe at cell phones na ipamimigay. Partner po natin yung Globe sa celebration at saka BDO. BDO is also set to give cash awards."

Lumawag also said that in recognition of their hard work and sacrifices abroad, there will be an awarding of outstanding OFWs. One award each for Outstanding Land-Based and Sea-Based OFWs. Recognition will also be given to the most active OFW Family Circle in the region.

Meanwhile, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) Caraga Coordinator Marieta Bellotindos confirmed that at least 19,973 job openings for overseas workers are also available in the event.
