Yesterday, we dished out real, unadulterated advice on why business owners should sign up for booths at a trade fair this Christmas. Now it’s your turn, happy shoppers! This weekend’s Big Bang Sales 2015 powered by Oaks Tranzact, is set to be the biggest trade fair to hit the scene in 2015, giving you more eye-candy to feast your shopaholic gaze on. For anyone and everyone in the shopping mood this month, it’s the perfect venue to finally find what you’ve been looking for, at the price you’ve budgeted, crossing off things from the Almighty shopping list. Just in case you’re not fully convinced, here are some more reasons why shopping at a trade fair is a must-do this season: 1. Saves time and energy: Think of a trade fair as a ‘summit’ of a number of boutique and store owners, all in one place for your buying pleasure, with a wide range of retail goods to choose from. The importance of such events in urban parts of Nigeria can never be overmphasized; a thought best considered while crawling through the busy roads of Lagos on Saturdays, thanks to the weddings that hold in every corner of the city. 2. Market intelligence: Now, remember, all your favourite retailers – of electronics, fashion, household wares among others – can be found at trade fairs. So if you’re not buying a particular item that day, at least you’ll have more knowledge and hence, bargaining power when you’re finally ready to make that purchase. 3. Good family fun: Your family deserves a nice day out, featuring some good, ol’ exercise and fresh air from the outdoor trade fair experience. Most of these fairs also have eateries, music and entertainment available, so your kids are guaranteed a kind of fun that’s different from the norm. Have you ever shopped at a trade fair before?
