No fewer than 300 SMEs operators across Kwara state will converge at Ilorin – the state capital – as social entrepreneurial group, Classic Trending Fabric (CTF), has finalised arrangements to organise a Trade fair for SMEs to showcase their talents through their products.
The convener of the fair, Mrs Islamiyat Toyin Olodo, while addressing a press conference in Ilorin on Tuesday, stated that investigations showed that so many talents and products are lying wasted in Kwara state hence the need to organise the fair to enable small entrepreneurs to put forward their products on display for sale so as to boost the economic growth of the state.
Olodo said that the programme will be second of its series adding that, the trade fair will also create visibility networking and collaboration for entrepreneurs in the state. She also said that CTF has partnered with D Positive Global Image Consult so as to train vendors on digital marketing and more importantly, how to optimise opportunities that come from the trade fair. The trade fair and exhibition is slated between 27th and 28th March 2020 at Arca Santa Arena, Ilorin.
