The Mangere Arts centre exploded with an array of colours, personalities and plenty of Samoa’s finest floral patterns as it hosted day one of the Samoa Association of Manufacturers and Exporters (SAME) Buy Samoa Made Trade Show. With over 200 invited participants, including many dignitaries, the evening was a great success, and a fine portrayal of some of the best Samoa has to offer to the international market.
Designed to highlight and promote the best of Samoa’s export sassy products, it made absolute sense to host the Trade Show in the Heart of Mangere, as the centre of the Samoan/Pasifika Community here in New Zealand.
The Cocktail evening opened with speeches from the organising committee, followed by entertainment; a fashion show by world-renowned Samoan fashion designer Mena as well as a fire knife performance from the Siva Afi crew.
The Cocktail evening was also an opportunity for participants to preview various products, offered by a variety of Samoan Businesses, from water tanks, to high street fashion, to beer, soft-drinks and jandals.
Organised by the SAME Committee in association with the Trade Commissioner Fonoti Dr Lafita’i Fuata’i, the Buy Samoa Made Tradeshow is now in its second year.
The SAME Buy Samoa Made Trade Show will run from Friday 15th 10.00am – 5.00pm – Saturday 16th November 8.00am – 1.00pm at the Mangere Arts Centre, Mangere.
