【ZW】Zimbabwe International Fair is postponed to September

The 2021 edition of the Zimbabwe International Fair (ZITF), initially scheduled for July 20-23, has been postponed to September 21-24.

In April, the annual exhibition received approval to open after commercial operations in the industry and commerce sector were relaxed.

However, in a statement, the chairman of the ZITF board, Busisa Moyo, said the date change was due to the government’s extension of the national Level 4 blockade for the week.

He added that the delay in holding the ZITF would also give exhibitors enough time to prepare for the fair.

“The decision to postpone the fair was reached with the approval of the Government of Zimbabwe and after consulting a wide range of interested parties. With the continuous ban on intercity travel, it has been difficult for exhibitors from outside the city to effectively plan their participation and bring their news”, he explains.

The event, which is one of the largest intra-regional trade fairs in sub-Saharan Africa, was canceled in 2020 after Covid-19 infections and deaths rose.

This year’s edition is themed ‘Introducing the New Standard for Business and Industry: Realities and Opportunities’

The ZITF has already reached a total of 408 exhibitors already confirmed and at least nine countries will participate. The fair is held at the Zimbabwe International Exhibition Center in Bulawayo.
