The Food Expo Abuja.

 

Hello foodilics,

I hope you are all well.

First of all Happy International Women’s Day. This is a remarkable day for us women who are battling day and night to earn recognition and a dignified place in our society. We should all remember that the more united we are the greater the lenght of our strenght would be. So to those celebrating, do it today and for the remaining 364 days. #okaayy ? Lol

Thank you ever so much for the amazing responses on the first ever post i did last week. I was incredibly suprised by the number of views. Feel free to also leave a feedback in the comment section in the future.

Last sunday was the 8th edition ( please, correct me if i am wrong) of the food exposition here in abuja and it was held at the maitama amisement park. As you can tell from the tittle, i was there to document and share with you parts of it. The event is for upcoming SME s and local vendors in the gastronomic industry and more than half of the vendors are peolle who are still doing their businesses from their home and this gives them the opportunitu to showcase their products and more importantly to network.

I was very impressed with the organisation at the event. The atmosphere at venue itself was great and family friendly with exciting fair rides. There were food and drinks for sale everywhere you looked, good music and enough space to chill. I was in love with the friendly vibe i got there.

The vendors were very approachable and easy to talk to.

Though one thing i expected to see that most vendors fell to deliver, ( except for one or two that i could see), were samples or tasters. At a food exposition you are expected to have samples available for those who maybe trying your products for the first time.
Samples are also a great marketing approach to attrack customers which i why i had hoped to see them on more than just two stands.
There were also a few clothes stands here and there which i found a bit strange at a food exposition…
Other than that i had a splendid time, chatted with a few vendors and i will definitely be going to the next events.

If you live in abuja and have been to the event before, let me know what you think in the comment section.

Or if you live anywhere else in the world, what are food expositions like over there ?

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Take care now,

Riv

    Looool @ samples, they probably were scared people will come and taste then run instead of buying the main package

    1. Lol true. But out of 10 people at least 4 or 5 would buy something after taking a sample 🙂
