The Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) Swakopmund branch will host the 5th Annual Swakopmund International Trade Expo (SWAITEX) in the Swakopmund Indoor Sports Centre (The Dome) from 11-14 October.
This year the team is working hard to ensure that there will also be representatives from international business from countries such as Brazil, Turkey, India, EU and other SADC members. The theme for SWAITEX 2017 is 'Embracing Innovation and Technology'.
SWAITEX is the only Expo across Namibia organised under the umbrella of the NCCI, which makes it different from all other expos in the country.
The Swakopmund Branch has been organising SWAITEX for the past 4 year from its very humble beginnings in a tent at the Swakopmund Municipality parking lot in 2013, SWAITEX has become a permanent fixture on both the Swakopmund and Erongo region events calendar and it attracts many visitors and investors to the coast.
The Expo will host exhibitors from the Mining, Finance, Tourism, Energy, Transport, Medical, Education, Fisheries, Logistic, Commercial and Retail sectors.
The event will also accommodate representatives from the SME, Sports, Wine and Décor, Catering, Construction and Outdoor sectors.
Meanwhile, the organisors added that the motor show in 2016 grew to heights and proved to be a crowd favourite.
"This year we will be introducing a theatre area with the capacity of 100 seated people," NCCI added.
The main aim of SWAITEX is to provide an opportunity for business and community stakeholders to showcase their products and services to the public, whilst forging networks and business linkages for economic growth.
