“Taking part in trade shows and exhibitions always was the best way to promote your goods. Even though the times are tough, the trade show is popular, it is in demand both among the companies and the population,” said the chairman of the Penza regional Chamber of Commerce Vladimir Podobed in a welcoming word.
Nearly half of the companies that will be offering their goods and services at the fair come from other regions, he stressed.
“It is pleasant to see that the Volga land representatives – Saratov, Samara, Mordovia, Ulyanovsk – are joined by Siberia: Novosibirsk at the current trade show, and Altai before that. And I think that the goods from the distant Kamchatka are in the biggest demand today,” pointed out the Commerce Chamber chairman, also drawing the attention towards the guests from Belarus.
“I would like to see everyone find what they seek – their consumer – at this trade show,” Vladimir Podobed stressed.
After the opening, visitors were able to inspect the assortment of available goods, and even sample some of them before the purchase.
The stall with fish and seafood from Kamchatka attracted the biggest queue at the fair. The stall sold slack-salted herrings for 320 rubles per kilogram, smoke-dried smelts for 1,850 rubles, pikes for 530 rubles, and octopuses for 1,200 rubles.
Also, enterprises from Lunino showcased their mushrooms grown with assistance of California-imported worms.
Moreover, the fair at the Penza Choreographic Center offered vacuum-sealed smoked chicken eggs produced by the Kolyshley poultry farm.
