Jul 2015 - Malta Trade Fair

The MFCC Malta Trade Fair is now open it was officially inaugurated, by her Excellency Marie Louise Coliero Preca on Thursday, 25th of June 2015.

This year the fair is surely bigger and better than ever before… why?!... Because we have an event in an embellished venue, with superb gifts and without doubt the largest number of exhibitors than ever before.  The Malta Trade Fair is synonymous with bargains, and great value for money, and this year we have become extravagant in both our presentation and gifts for the visitors.

The reasons why one should visit are endless. Reasons vary from finding great value when shopping to chancing your luck to win one million euro.  In between these two poles one finds an exuberant variation of other reasons which are superb and as never before.  Let’s convince you that this year you certainly cannot miss out…

Prizes

Teaming up with ROCS Group MFCC is bringing to visitors a WOW opportunity … that of winning one million Euro.  Door to door distribution is ensuring that everyone gets the opportunity to chance winning one million euro.  This is for real, do not let cynicism lose you a golden opportunity… so pick that brochure fill in the form and get on your way to the MFCC Malta Trade Fair to try your luck.  More information about how this works can be found on our website, mfcc.com.mt, visit and learn more.  Additional to this unique prize, we are also giving away €28,600 worth of groceries from Gala Supermarket. This gift is going to those who actually purchase goods and/or services during the fair. Daily prizes worth €2600 each will be drawn throughout the 11 days of the fair.  Here’s how it works… for every purchase concluded at MFCC, you are given tickets for the value of the purchase. For every €50 spent a ticket is given, therefore if you purchase something of a value of €300, 6 competition tickets are given.  The competition voucher needs to be filled in and deposited in a specific urn, which is found on the Gala stand.  Every night a ticket is drawn and announced the next day on our social media and website.

We are also giving great value to all visitors of the fair.  Teaming up with Captain Morgan Cruises, MFCC Malta Trade Fair are giving you the opportunity to go on a cruise to Comino.  The entrance ticket to the 58th edition of the MFCC Malta Trade Fair, is also a voucher redeemable for a cruise on a Captain Morgan Boat.  Visitors have to simply present the voucher, purchase another ticket for an accompanying person, or more, and enjoy the cruise trip to Comino. 

And, if you have children, they get a free hot dog if you enter the fair before 8pm.  Make sure you pick a voucher at the entrance, this is redeemable at the Food Court bar before 8pm.



Exhibitors

The reason to visit the fair is essentially tied to the exhibitors and the content of the fair.  This year MFCC is creating variety at the fair by introducing new concepts.  From a setup perspective we have redesigned the area to create an embellished look which ultimately provides for a better visitor experience.  We have evaluated what was said about past editions of the fair and have eliminated areas which were not well received, and created others with new ideas such as the Bella Vita Zone, the Home Zone and the Gardens and more Zone.  We have focused on regaining exhibitors of stature and quality to ensure that the visitor gets a great opportunity in both value for money and quality goods when visiting the fair.  Undoubtedly the bargains in terms of trade fair offers are for real and all exhibitors are committed to delivering to the consumer the best possible product at the most competitive price.  Today competition gives the consumer a great advantage and the fair provides the platform for comparing prices and quality to give you the best value out of your purchases.

This year at the MFCC Malta Trade Fair we have over 200 exhibitors, with goods ranging from home appliances, white goods, crockery, lighting and electrical supplies, energy saving solutions, furniture, sofas, armchairs, bedding and mattresses, air conditioners, fireplaces, apertures, doors, windows, insect screens, soft furnishings, bed linen, aluminium works, garage doors, staircases,  tiles, home finishing products, water proofing and insulation products, computers and IT accessories, bathrooms, televisions, garden furniture, artisan food items, wines, aesthetic solutions, jewellery, cosmetics, perfumes, toiletries, hair products, insurance, travel, cars, electric bikes, pet items and lots more.  Undoubtedly the variety is limitless.

This year we have also installed an ATM machine courtesy of Bank of Valletta, to ensure all visitors get the opportunity to conclude purchases whilst at the fair.
