Small-scale enterprises to exhibit on Saturday
AT least 50 small-scale enterprises will on Saturday exhibit their products at the Bulawayo Project Centre’s headquarters in Thorngrove as part of preparations for the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, an official has said.
The exhibition is being organised by the Bulawayo Projects Centre — an offshoot of the Bulawayo Shelter, an organisation that was initiated by churches in the late 1980s to cater for the destitute.
The centre’s business advisor, Beauty Macheka, said the exhibition was also aimed at creating a platform for small-scale entrepreneurs to showcase their products to the local market.
“Apart from preparing for the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, the showcase on Saturday is aimed at creating a platform through which the entrepreneurs can showcase their products to the local market and by so doing tapping potential markets. We have also invited officials from our partners to attend the exhibition,” she said.
Macheka said the exhibition would be used to evaluate potential products manufactured by the entrepreneurs have in attracting prospective buyers ahead of this year’s 51st edition of the ZITF, which runs in Bulawayo between 20 and 24 April under the theme, “Unlocking Our Investment Potential.”
A survey carried out by this paper this week showed that firms participating at this year’s trade fair have started designing their stands.
Macheka said her organisation secured a stand at which about 40 small-scale entrepreneurs from various sectors would exhibit their products.
The project centre’s business advisor said exhibitors during Saturday’s event would be drawn from sectors that include sculpturing, pottery, basketry, engineering, art and craft.
Last year, the project centre held three exhibitions at the main centre and its satellite centres in high-density suburbs in Nketa and Cowdray Park.
