Exhibitor's Stands Competing For Space

A Section of the Crowd at the Trade Fair Complex.Today at the fair ground, activity is upbeat with exhibitors getting their acts together setting up their stands to attract the throng of visitors to the fair ground. Quite unlike yesterday after the opening ceremony when scanty stands were in place, today, as if by magic most exhibitors' stands were in place. The turnout at the fair today was impressive with over 12, 000 visitors.

The noise at the fair is quite deafening with almost all the stands blaring loudly on big speakers in a bid to attract the visitors. The layout of the fair ground makes it easy for mobility unlike last year when human traffic was quite uncontrollable to the extent that movement was greatly impeded. The number of exhibitors this year is quite impressive with more stands; this is attributed to the huge size of the present location of the fair.

The Sharp Stand at the Trade FairPresent at this years' fair are: Tang, Dangote Group, MTN, Econet Wireless, Michelin Tyres, Dunlop Tyres, Sharp Electronics, Mikano, Nigerian Bottling Company Plc, Limca, Vitamalt, Pepsi, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Indomie, UAC of Nigeria Plc, Samsung, USA
Pavilion, among others.

Kudos should be given to Chivalry Merchant and Brokers Limited, the sole franchise holder for the ticketing and marketing of the 2002 Trade Fair. In fact they did a wonderful job in managing the crowd and were quite orderly in the sale of tickets to the visitors to the fair. The rowdiness that became the hallmark of last year's fair has been noticeably missing this year.
