OTJIWARONGO, 07 SEP (NAMPA) – The Okakarara Trade Fair started on Monday, with more than 150 exhibitors taking part.
The 11th edition of the fair is taking place at the Okakarara Trade Fair Centre and ends Sunday.
More than 3 000 local and foreign visitors have so far visited the stalls and the figure is expected to exceed 6 000 over the weekend, said Chief Administrator of the Okakarara Trade Fair Society, Golden Katjatako.
“What impresses me most is that the Okakarara Trade Fair continues to grow every year, with new exhibitors joining the event,” he told Nampa on Thursday.
Katjatako urged the participating businesses to capitalise on the trade fair to establish business networks and generate an income.
The official opening of the trade fair is taking place on Friday, while the Miss Okakarara Trade Fair 2017 Beauty Pageant is scheduled for later that same day.
Several other activities are lined up, including horse riding. A concert featuring artists such as Soul Brothers from South Africa, Kalux, Wild Dogs, and Black Masters will take place on Saturday.
