The Ministry said that construction work is underway to ensure that the exhibitors and participant’s expectations are met, in keeping with high standards synonymous with the event.
Eighty percent of the booths at the Exhibition site are already booked, “which is evident of the tremendous interest the event is generating”, according to the Ministry’s Public Relations Chevon Lim.
She explained that, “We are anticipating over 100,000 persons over the four days of this event and we want to ensure that we are prepared to make this an event that they are sure to remembers and enjoy . Even in the booths themselves we will deploy Pavilion Managers to manage the flow of patrons to avoid congestion. We have listened to our exhibitors and our consumers and we are catering to their needs.”
GuyExpo 2014 will be held from October 2 – 5 at the National Exhibition Centre under the theme, ‘Transformation: Partnering for a Better Guyana’.
According to Lim, one of the additional highlights of this year’s event, is the design concept to be portrayed under this year’s chosen theme ‘Transformation: Partnering for a Better Guyana’.
“The aim is for everyone to understand the design concept for GuyExpo 2014. This year’s theme ‘Transformation: Partnering for a Better Guyana’ highlights the power of partnerships as a catalyst for transforming this endowed land of the free and so to support this year’s developmental theme . A floral layout ‘Guyana Blooming’ was conceptualized to represent Guyana’s blooming industry sectors responsible for the economic transformation of our flourishing country.”
Mrs. Lim also explained that patrons will be enthralled by the ‘Historical Walk’ at the entrance to the site.
She said, “This represents the new paths Guyana continues to blaze while opening up new frontiers of development from the year 1980-2014. Photographs will be placed along this walkway portraying this vigorous development throughout recent years.”
As part of the strategy to ensure the successful staging of the activity, Mrs. Lim emphasized that the issue of adequate parking has also been addressed.
