THE largest trade and entertainment event of the year started at the Vodafone Arena in Suva yesterday.

It attracts more than 90,000 people a year who take advantage of the discounts exhibitors offer at the nine-day event.

People rushed in at mid-day when the event officially opened its doors.

With common exhibitors in their booths, there were also new faces to the event.

The show offers different things for different people.

"For children, it's about Cookie the Clown, the magic and comedy shows, international performers, the fun-park, food and carnival rides," says Total Event Company manager Loretta Jackson.

She said it was about great shopping, interesting and new products, entertainment for adults and the opportunity to promote and sell their products and services, introduce new products and services, gather leads and meet potential new customers directly for exhibitors.

The trade show ends on July 12.
