The 21st edition of the Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair (OATF) has been cancelled.

The popular event, which was scheduled to take place from 21 to 29 August, was called off by the Ongwediva town council in consultation with the Ongwediva Trade Fair Society (OTFS) due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is, according to town council spokesperson Jackson Muma, in line with protecting the health and safety of visitors, employees, exhibitors and other stakeholders, and in compliance with the government's state of emergency regulations to fight the pandemic.

“It is in the best interest of the public to ensure that all active economic sectors and participants at the OATF join hands in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus, thereby redirecting resources toward the common cause,” Muma said.



Popularity

The OATF is one of the most popular trade and exhibition shows on the Namibian calendar and provides opportunities for both local and international investors to meet and partner up.

Last year, it attracted 451 exhibitors, 5.5% of which were from countries such as Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa, Botswana, Japan, Germany, America and Indonesia.

In 2018, it attracted a total of 450 exhibitors and 84 858 visitors.
