Fair of Ségou
Since its creation, the Festival sur le Niger Foundation has contributed to the promotion of the local economy in Ségou region through its DEL (Local Economic Development) program. It initiated, on the sidelines of the Festival sur le Niger, a craft and agricultural fair with its partners to promote the creativity of Segou craftsmen and the agro-food industry.
This fair aims to create a bridge between culture and economy through artistic craftsmanship and creativity and consists in creating a market through the organization of an exhibition-sale, enhancement and promotion of craftsand agro-food productsfor the benefit of economic actors and populations.
It is a space for exchange, sharing of experiences, promotion and valorization of local products.
Thus, for a week, on the banks of the Niger River, there a mix between the imagination and creativity of about 400 local national and internationalcraftsmen and creators, from twenty countries in the West African sub-region and beyond.
The 18th edition of the Fair of Ségou t place to 01-06 February 2022, at the “Quai des arts”, site of the Festival sur le Niger. We expect 200 000 visitors during the Fair with a turnover of around 600 million FCFA.
To make this edition a success, particular emphasis will be placed on the quality of the exhibition stands with dimensions meeting conventional standards (9m² for ordinary stands and 18m² for VIPs) with all the amenities.
This vital fair for the local, national and even sub-regional economy is a salvation and an opportunity for local and other stakeholders.
