Fashion, gastronomy, health, decoration and other ventures open space from today (May 10, 2018) until May 13 at the El Zoco de Cumbayá Fair for Mother’s Day.
Since 2011, the fair has positioned itself as a showcase for local artisans and entrepreneurs. This meeting will change venue for the first time in this edition and will be held at the Jacarandá Club.
In addition to the shelves, this space has allowed them to implement a children’s area, which will feature superhero presentations to entertain the little ones. Carla Macchiavello, organizer of the event, tells that every year they bring to the fair brands from all over the country, because they have become a showcase that drives entrepreneurs who lack stores and seek to give that boost to brands from all over Ecuador.
For this edition, Macchiavello says craftsmen from Cuenca, Guayaquil, Ambato and Quito will be present. They add more than 80 exhibitors and 90 brands of the country. The founder also emphasizes that it is not a requirement, but in most posts are the creators of the product because it generates closeness to the customer and, in addition, allows them to discuss their uses, applications and solve their doubts.
Macchiavello says that the fair was born with the idea of creating a space for growing projects. For this reason, they repeat the meeting twice a year both on Mother’s Day and at Christmas, because items that can easily become unique gifts are displayed.
On this occasion, the organizers highlight the variety of products for the home, clothing, accessories or food. There will also be artisans who make trays or candle holders, among others, with designs made from recycled glass. To them are added lines of clothing, shirts and shoes that will arrive from Guayaquil as well as jewelry design brands based on zircons and natural stones.
Chili sauces, artisan amaranth and pasta, decorative items such as vases, crockery, pillows, therapeutic compresses, creams and beauty products, as well as toquilla straw hats, bathing suits, handbags and designer garments will be part of the offer in the fair.
The event will have an area of ‘food trucks’ with stalls of Mexican food, sandwiches and in the afternoon a space will open for the public to taste a variety of classic cocktails and signature. The fair has managed to make known brands that already have international projection. “That fills us with satisfaction,” says the organizer for whom the fair continues to grow while supporting brands in the country.
