Participating companies rent permanent exhibition space, for a minimum period of six months, for the sampling, display and sale of their products to visiting commercial buyers from targeted countries, on a duty-free basis from stocks kept locally. They can of-course sell to local traders, but on duty-paid basis. Tenant exhibitors need to employ a full-time resident representative to manage the showroom.
Terms of renting showroom space.
Rent is calculated according to showroom’s area in m². Sizes of showrooms vary from 12m² upwards. Showroom management can be provided by the Centre if so required, at an extra cost.
A down payment equal to one month’s rent is required when making a firm booking at the Centre. This down payment is not refundable, but it will be deducted from the rent of the first year. Rent is payable yearly in advance. All rents due must be settled in full before taking up allocated space at the Centre.
The rental charges include:
- General lighting
- Telephone, Fax and computer outlets.
- Central heating & air-conditioning
- 24 hour security service
