BETTER LATE THAN NEVER COMES TO MIND AS KARIBU AND KILI FINALLY TEAM UP
(Posted 30th November 2017)
It has been long in coming but the organizers of the long standing Karibu Fair in Arusha and relative newcomer KILIFair from Moshi have finally laid competition aside and joined hands to create what will become East Africa’s largest tourism trade show.
The all new innovative ‘KARIBU / KILIFAIR‘ will launch in 2018 and have alternating venues, one year in Moshi and the next in Arusha.
This puts concerns by exhibitors to rest over the need to spend extra resources to be at both venues, or else miss out on one, and give them, hosted buyers, tourism trade visitors and media the best value for money
The new combined fair expects for 2018 some 350 exhibitors, more than 300 international, regional and local tour operators, travel agents and hosted buyers and some 4.000 visitors overall during the trade fair days.
This correspondent has been constructively critical on the close time and venue vicinity of the fairs in recent years and after engaging with both parties for the past years is more than happy to see a ‘Win Win‘ situation being created which benefits the organizers as well as their targeted clientele.
For those keen to take home more have the show organizers also organized a tourism trade seminar and applications to participate are now being accepted.
Make sure you don’t miss this inaugural combined trade show event in Arusha / Moshi next year in Tanzania which promises to be the best and largest ever.
