Household utensil, gift fair attracts 100 businesses

(VOV) - About 100 businesses will showcase household utensils and gifts at a week-long special fair in Hanoi, starting on June 22 as part of Vietnam Family Day 2013.

On display at the 2013 Household Utensil and Gift Fair will be fashionable garments, cosmetics, electronic products, toys, stationery, candies, processed food, handicraft products, and souvenirs.

Cultural activities celebrating Vietnam Family Day 2013 (June 28) will run in conjunction with the fair, such as book reading for children and a space dedicated to traditional Vietnamese food.

Organisers will also run a writing competition themed “Great Dad”, a cooking competition, a flower arrangement competition, a ceremony honouring 40 outstanding families, and an art performance.

International Trade Fair Organising Company (IFC) Director Nguyen Cong Tuan said the fair is a practical response to the “Vietnamese people use Vietnamese goods” campaign.

It also provides a good opportunity for businesses to share their experiences in manufacturing and promoting their brands as widely as possible, he noted.

The fair will be held at the Vietnam Culture and Arts Exhibition Center on 2 Hoa Lu Street, Hanoi.

Vietnamese people observe June 28 as Family Day to promote humanitarian values of family in society.
