Is the Trade Fair Losing its Appeal?

The Trade Fair is a popular event in Malta. It hosts numerous exhibitors offering different products, services and items for one’s home. Such available products would include kitchens, sofas, furniture, appliances, televisions, catering equipment, alternative energy, doors, bathrooms, outdoor and garden furniture, cars, cosmetics, jewellery, amidst numerous others. Attending the Trade Fair allows you to buy such products at a better price, providing you with higher value for money.

The Trade Fair also allowed the opportunity for entrants to win a thousand Euro in cash. This was determined by a draw, taking place daily at 10.00 pm. The winner would then go back home with an extra one thousand Euro in his pocket. Attendees were very excited to insert their tickets in the urn found in the food court area.

All those who bought products from the Trade Fair entered the chance to win a shopping voucher from GALA Supermarket. For every fifty Euro spent, customers got a ticket which put them in a chance to win.

There was also the opportunity to win a free flight with ROCS. Such destinations available included London, Ibiza, Cairo, Kiev, Rome, St Petersburg, Moscow, Casablanca, Malaga, Palermo, Taormina, Brussels and Tunisia. 

The Trade Fair was also well equipped with some good live music and entertainment, with different artists across various days.

For those who were simply accompanying others and were less inclined to shop, they could enjoy some time at the Food Court, trying out some tasty and varied dishes.

A new feature introduced this year at the Trade Fair was the MFCC Sim Racing Challenge. In a nutshell, this was a driving simulator challenge and the person who would achieve the best time performance for the day would win fifty Euro worth of fuel.

Such an event has long been popular in Malta. In this respect, many service providers have been setting up their stands to provide their products or services. In order to maintain the quality of such an event, it is important that some screening of the service provider is in place. In an event with a significant number of exhibitions and suppliers, you would expect some degree of inferior products. Stands selling certain products may not bode well for the event’s future. 

In this respect, it is important that the event organisers set some standards to ensure that people will still continue to visit the Trade Fair, maintaining its relevance and popularity.
