When the ZBC News crew visited the ZITF grounds it was a hive of activity with individual standholders busy sprucing up their stands.

This year’s trade fair has seen exhibitors filling-up all the halls to capacity, with 95% of available exhibition space having been booked so-far.

Twenty-nine foreign companies have confirmed their participation.

On the local front, ZITF has managed to attract exhibitors from all the various sectors of the economy including engineering, mining, manufacturing and banking.           

This year’s ZITF comes at a time when the economy is showing signs of recovery with relative growth of industrial capacity utilisation.                                       
ZITF 2011 is set from the 3rd to 7th of May under the theme: ‘Optimising Business Synergies Now and Beyond’.
