MORE than 30 firms have confirmed participation in a family fun day being hosted by the country’s leading events management company, the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair Company (ZITF).
The exhibition, set for November 2, is expected to display products and services on fitness and health-related products, food and nutrition, cars, arts and crafts, jewellery and fashion, among other products.
An official said over 30 companies had already taken up space for the expo.
“The expo will showcase latest techniques, trends and tips for health and fitness, lifestyle and home as well as technology sectors,” ZITF acting marketing and public relations manager Stella Nkomo, said.
Nkomo said exhibitors would be expected to conduct direct sales to visitors and general public.
Hall Five has been reserved for the grandstanding event while some activities and games will take place in Hall Four and the main arena.
