Erongo expo ends on a high note

19 November 2018 | Events

The 12th annual Erongo Business and Tourism Expo saw 150 exhibitors showcasing a huge variety of products.

According to Desiré Stevens, marketing manager of Expo Studio Namibia, the organisers were satisfied and impressed with the exhibitor turnout, especially taking into account the economic slowdown presently prevailing in Namibia.

“Public attendance at the expo was impressive and overwhelming.”

The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) was not the main sponsor of the expo this year. Namport sponsored the expo over the past few years.

“Although the decision by Nam-port to not come on board as a lead sponsor this year was regretted, it had no negative impact on the exposition. In the meanwhile the Erongo Business and Tourism Expo will continue taking place annually as the event has grown to become Namibia's third largest exposition. Furthermore, the event's importance to the local economy of Walvis Bay must not be allowed to diminish.”

The expo organisers experienced no major challenges as “all hitches could be dealt with swiftly and decisively."

“Lessons were learnt for the 2019 event and we are already planning innovations. This will include the running of an investment promotion conference in parallel to the exposition as well as growing facets such as the motor show. Plans are underway to include a crayfish and related products fest for the next Erongo expo.”

The organisers are also planning to run two smaller events during the months leading up to the expo.

“The possibilities we are busy exploring include an angling, outdoor and camping show or a bridal, fashion and fabric show.”
