‘Made in Namibia’ exhibition, creates platform that promotes local products
Wernhil Park last week hosted its debut ‘Made in Namibia’ exhibition, leading up to the country’s 29th Independence celebrations.
According to Head: Public Relations and Marketing at Broll Namibia, Sylvia Rusch, the event has proven to be a great success.
Rusch emphasized that the ‘Made in Namibia’ exhibition will be an annual initiative, especially encouraged by the support and participation of Namibians to this year’s first attempt.
“We were overwhelmed with the level of interest shown to participate at this event aimed at showcasing, and creating awareness on proudly local products, services, entrepreneurs, talent, etc. The event is aimed at creating awareness of the creativity and business expertise of our Namibian people and also to give local products a platform for promotion, while enabling upcoming entrepreneurs to market their products and services, all under one roof,” said Rusch.
In addition Rusch said the exhibition is also aimed at educating and encouraging shoppers to support local products which can result in job creation and sustainability.
The exhibition hosted 17 exhibitors that showcased exquisite traditional cuisine, locally produced products and services, and plenty of authentic local entertainment, with at least 16 local artists enticing the audience and exhibition goers with their original sounds and creations.
