“Addis Trade for Development”
THE GRAND TRADE FAIR
The 14th & 15th Editions
Century Promotion Service is please to introduce the 14th and 15th editions of the Grand Trade Fair that will take place from December 23, 2010 - January 06, 2011 and April 09, 2011 - April 23, 2011, in connection with the Ethiopian Christmas and Easter festivals at the Addis Ababa Exhibition Centre. The two summer season festivals are the times when Ethiopians enjoy shopping and visiting market places. Of all times, these are the grandest of events that promise 20,000 - 30,000 visitors each day. The time also coincides with the highest inflow of tourists into the country that makes the event a melting pot for visitors arriving from all parts of the world.
Century Promotion Service have organised thirteen highly successful Trade Fairs in connection with the celebrations of major Ethiopian Festivals over the past ten years. All the experiences gained from the past deeds have been used to raise the standards of these two events to highly professional and international levels.
Most of the Trade Fairs organised by the company have had pivotal roles in transferring technology and knowhow into the country and provide great opportunities for foreign companies to establish relations with Ethiopia companies looking for joint venture arrangements.
In a bid to achieving even better results in promoting trade and investment in the country, the company has planned for more splendid business matchmaking events through organising business to business meetings between companies (both local and foreign), alongside the exhibition. In the light of this, the company shall publish participating companies and their respective businesses in newspapers, posts on its website and send mail messages to all participating companies to allow planning for business to business meetings ahead of time and facilitate bilateral business talks between interested companies.
Ethiopia is a highly promising nation regarded by the World Bank as one of the fastest growing economy in Sub-Saharan Africa. This makes the country not only a place to do business but also the right destination for investment. As a company engaged in business promotion, CPS offers additional services to foreign participants as a compliment for their interest in doing business in Ethiopia. The complimentary free offer includes facilitating visits to potential business partners, investment agencies, offices of local administrations and to downtown market, among others.
The event organiser, CPS, has also planned to break the monotony of hard business talks by organising a free dinner and cultural show for foreign participants. With this, our foreign participants can have a glimpse of what Ethiopia can offer to the outside world in terms of leisure and tourism.
While cordially inviting companies to take this opportunity to promote their products and services in the growing Ethiopian market and explore for new business and investment opportunities, CPS promises to serve its clients to their utmost expectations.
