BEITBRIDGE – The Beitbridge Business Expo has this year been slated for July 7 to 9, according to Dr Anna Muleya who is the Business Expo’s chairperson.
She told Two Nations in an interview that the expo was last held in 2019, the year it was introduced because of Covid19 lockdowns.
The expo which is expected to attract 50 exhibitors both from within and outside Beitbridge will run under the theme ‘’Beitbridge 24/7” which is a statement of aspiration by the organisers to see business in the town becoming so intense that it runs for 24 hours every day.
Some key highlights of the event are women and gender seminars and entertainment including dancers and poets.
Dr Muleya said preparations have started and they are so advanced that invitations to exhibitors are already being send out.

The Expo is organized by the Beitbridge Business Expo Committee and it also has an objective to revive the economy post the Covid19 pandemic.
Some members of the organizing committee are Vimbai Muleya who is the secretary, border service station Human Resources Officer Peter Zvenyika who is the treasurer, Bertha Mutowembwa and Tapiwa Mpofu, Beitbridge Town Clerk Loud Ramakgapola, Zimborders Consortium’s general manager Nqobile Ncube, an entrepreneur Kudakwashe Garaipasi and Nyaradzo branch manager Walter Mutero who are committee members among others.

“The event will bring together business leaders from Beitbridge and the rest of the country. It provides an opportunity for small and big businesses to interact and network and to showcase their products and services,” said Dr Muleya.
She applauded Beitbridge Municipality for throwing its weight behind the expo.
The Business Expo secretary Vimbai Muleya said the event is not restricted to large companies but SMEs and individuals are also welcome.
