The 2019 Business Botswana Northern Trade Fair (BBNTF) looks set to sparkle with exciting new events added to the packed programme.
Scheduled for the 29 May to June 2, this year’s edition marks the fair’s 25th installment and includes a Networking Forum as well as a Wine and Cheese tasting session.
As in previous years, the trade fair will take place in Francistown at Business Botswana’s spacious Gerald Estates’ Showgrounds.
The Chinese Ambassador to Botswana, Doc Zhao Yanbo has been confirmed as the Guest Speaker.
Meeting with Voice Money this week, Business Botswana Regional Manager, Eileen Van Der Est revealed the theme for this year’s fair is ‘Innovate, Integrate, Industrialise’.
“Innovate in that we are calling upon businesses to come up with new ideas. Integrate in terms of looking at how Botswana’s businessmen and women can use the country’s raw materials. Also, as businesses grow they can have many industries thus leading to creation of employment,” she explained of the theme.
The regional boss added that 130 stalls have currently been booked but stressed there was still space available.
