HAVING just opened its gates two days ago, the Fiji Showcase 2014 has already welcomed crowds of people, all showing encouraging response and participation to the displays provided this year.

Total Events Company manager Loretta Jackson yesterday said tcrowd numbers were "excellent as usual".

"Today (yesterday) has been steady and we know that later this afternoon it will be very busy," Mrs Jackson said.

"The weather office has advised that this weather is here to stay for a bit.

"We are fortunate that the majority of the venue is under cover and therefore when (and if) it does rain, it has no effect."

When asked about which stalls seemed to be the most popular over the past two days, she said the Land Transport Authority, Fiji National Provident Fund and the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority stalls were definitely among some of the most visited.

"LTA, FNPF and FRCA are very popular with the opportunity to do licences, wheel taxes etc, and joint FNPF/FRCA cards.

"The elections booth is doing a great job of awareness.

"There is such a diverse range of products and services, it is hard to pinpoint the most popular. Consumables are always popular (food products) as are appliances.

"Vision Motors have Chrysler and Chevrolet cars and these have created interest as many people have never seen them."

The show is expected to attract about 90,000 people this year.
