The Northern SME Expo 2020 is now underway at the Ondangwa Trade Fair Center. The expo runs from the 2nd to the 6th of December 2020 and N$4.99 gets you into the venue.
Organized by Nashville investments and sponsored by Chicco Group of companies, the event offers small and medium enterprises an opportunity to interact face-to-face with potential clients while allowing local people a chance to get access to information and a variety of products.
“The initiative behind the Northern SME is to raise awareness for the small to medium businesses in Namibia, who do not get enough recognition for the massive contributions they make towards the country’s economy. We also want to bring services closer to the people” said Nangula Nashandi, the event coordinator.
Nashandi says that exhibitors have been given a platform to showcase their products and services, allowing them to generate an income through sales during this hard time of economic down strain. “We have SMEs at heart; this initiative is for them to sell as much as possible in order for them to make a good profit. There are no restrictions on what to sell; exhibitors just have to adhere and stick to what they have applied for” Nashandi added
Having already secured speakers from different business sectors, the inaugural official opening for this event will take place on Saturday the 5th of December 2020.
The event is anticipated to grow into a bigger and better one next year, with applications for the 2021 stalls expected to be out this Friday, the 4th of December 2020.
“It’s going to grow every year. I think the excitement and what the expo is doing for the local businesses here is really what’s getting everybody excited about it as people are able to come out here and do some networking. For next year’s event, forms will be out by Friday, 4th December 2020 and will be treated as the first one served and the demand will tell” says Nashandi
