RUNDU, 06 OCT (NAMPA) - The Rundu Trade Fair organising committee will host a gala dinner next week in order to raise funds for the event slated for this month.
Head of community services at the Rundu Town Council and chairperson of the organising committee, Fransiska Thikerete told Nampa on Thursday the gala dinner is scheduled for next Friday.
The Rundu Trade Fair will take place from 31 October to 04 November under the theme ‘Enhancing trade for socio-economic prosperity’.
Thikerete said preparations are at an advanced stage, but the focus at the moment is on the gala dinner which will be held at the Kavango Regional Council Auditorium.
She called on the business community and the town’s residents to support the initiative.
“We are depending on the business fraternity and the people in our town to support the gala dinner in order for us to make the trade fair a success,” said the chairperson.
Tickets for a table of 10 cost N.dollars 4 000, while individuals will pay N.dollars 400.
Thikerete said although they have budgeted for the trade fair, the funds will not be enough to cater for everything they have envisioned for this year’s event.
This includes repairs at the venue and cultural village.
The Rundu Trade Fair will take place at the convention centre at the Rundu Multi-Purpose Centre.
