Next Export Home Angola fair may have 10-month exhibition

28 June 2010

Luanda, Angola, 28 Jun – The next Furniture, Decoration, Lighting and Home Textile Fair (Export Home Angola) may have a permanent exhibition lasting 10 months, the director of the Luanda International Fair (FIL) said on Sunday in Luanda.

Matos Cardoso made his comments at the end of the second Export Home Angola. The possibility that the fair could eventually include a permanent exhibition aims simply to give the public and potential clients more time to appreciate the products on show, he said.

Cited by Angolan news agency Angop, Matos Cardoso said the idea was still under study, especially regarding the format and coordination, bearing in mind the time needed and the financial and human resources implied by the challenge.

“If there are positive indications, we’ll go ahead with the project,” he added.

This second fair, Export Home Angola 2010, closed its doors on Sunday, having gathered 80 Angolan and Portuguese companies, 40 less than the previous fair.

According to the FIL management body that organised Export Home Angola together with Portugal’s Exponor, sector-specific fairs aim to provide conditions that facilitate company efforts to establish partnerships. (macauhub)
