The 39th annual Stettler Regional Board of Trade and Community Development’s Trade Show April 12 – 14 had 2,700 visitors.

The three-day show at the Stettler Recreation Centre showcased the products and services of over 140 exhibitors and entertainers.

“The new Artisans Market brought to us a variety of handcrafted and handmade items from graphic novels and wooden farm sets to pottery and artwork,” said Donna Morris, project manager.

Visitors from near and far travelled to see what the Stettler Trade Show and Artisans Market had to offer and just over 2,700 people took in the show over the weekend.

This is a slight decrease over 2018 attendance.

“Weather plays a major factor in our show attendance. When it is nice and sunny outside, people like to be out in their yards and gardens and not indoors.

“Regardless, vendors seemed to be pleased with the results of the show and many are excited for the prospect of future sales as well.”

The annual Stettler Trade Show offers one-stop shopping with family fun for a reasonable price and helps vendors showcase their products and services to a variety of potential customers.

“This year’s show boasted a 56 per cent increase in new vendors. Part of that can be attributed to the new Artisans Market however I think the lower economy is playing a factor as well and businesses want to get their names out there,” Morris said.
