Brunei’s biggest consumer and trade show Consumer Fair is back for its 23rd edition at the International Convention Centre with special exhibitions themed after Thailand and Taiwan and a warehouse sale for toys as cheap as 99 cents.

The Consumer Fair kicked off on June 26, officiated by the Minister of Home Affairs Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Haji Awang Abu Bakar Hj Apong, but exhibitions at the main conference hall and dewan perpaduan began only yesterday at 2pm. Over 400 booths from 180 local and international vendors are participating in the five-day event which runs until this Sunday.

The Ambassador-at-Large at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Her Royal Highness Princess Hajah Masna also launched the Thailand Grand Fair at Sepakat 2 and 3 which is showcasing fresh produce straight from the land of smiles including durian and mangoes alongside Thai delicacies like mango sticky rice and pad thai. Nearby at the Musyawarah Hall are products from Taiwan, including quirky electronics like mini irons and handmade leather bags.

Consumer Fair is open from 10am to 10pm daily, with shuttle buses available to ferry passengers from the indoor stadium infront of ICC.

The air-conditioned roder tent located at the back of ICC housing the Blue Zone is another must stop, housing a variety of fresh and packaged food and beverage alongside a booth by DARe housing Bruneian Made products from 15 SMEs.

The Toy Warehouse Sale is also within the Blue Zone, where visitors who’ve made purchases above $60.99 in a single receipt can scurry for as many discoutned toys in 15 seconds priced at 99 cents, $1.99, $5.99 and $9.99.

CF was launched in 2008 and has since developed into D’Sunlit’s flagship biannual event, serving as a one-stop retail experience offering the latest range of consumer products and services at promotional prices.
