The aim of the fair is to provide exhibitors with an opportunity to actively promote their business and network with other exhibitors. In addition, the fair presents a significant opportunity for business branding and creation of new product visibility and to promote existing products. Further, the Trade Fair is a platform that can be used to lure investors into Francistown and this can be achieved through partnership which will help boost the economy of the city through            cultivation of creative and innovative ideas that will make Francistown a vibrant, dynamic and caring place to live work & play.  Government has played a significant role by providing a business enabling environment in which citizen   entrepreneurs can participate through different policies, the Citizen Economic Empowerment (EDD), SMME Policy, therefore it is up to the private sector to  leverage these policies for the economy to thrive and improve Botswana’s competitiveness thereby unlocking potential for  economic growth.   

The fair promise to be more epic as compared to the previous fairs. There will attractions such as; fashion show, golf challenge, business forum and other form of entertainment.
