Trade Expo “Bigger and Better” with New Arena

In the words of Smithers Chamber of Commerce Manager Heather Gallagher, this year’s annual Northwest Trade Expo will be “bigger and better, of course!”
Similarly to year’s past, the annual exhibition will be held in the Civic Centre. However, with the addition of Smithers’ new arena, the show has doubled in indoor floor space and can now host over 70 vendors.
With new exhibitors, new faces, and now a new arena, Gallagher says no two Expos are alike.
“Every year it is different but I think people feel like they’ve been there, they’ve seen it but you really haven’t. Every year it’s different.,” she says.
The new arena will host the outdoor show while the old arena will host both the regular and car shows.
The Trade Show runs Friday, May 1st from 3 – 9 and Saturday, May 2nd from 10 am – 6 pm.
Entrances fees are $3. Children under 8 are free if accompanied by an adult.
