D’SUNLIT Sdn Bhd, the organiser of the upcoming 22nd Consumer Fair (CF22), held a briefing for exhibitors at its premises in Beribi on Friday.
The briefing was attended by representatives of numerous companies and establishments who will be showcasing their products and services at the five-day event.
The briefing began with an explanation on the Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) QuickPay by BIBD Head of Merchant Services Law Siew Vui followed by updates by a D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd representative on the latest developments, logistic concerns and specified rules and regulations.
The exhibitors were reminded to submit the necessary documents to the relevant government bodies, and were also provided details of the opening ceremony that will be held on the morning of January 23.
CF22 will feature over 400 booths with 180 local and international exhibitors.

The Blue Zone, previously located at the east wing of the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Berakas, has now been relocated to the parking area at the west wing, to accommodate over 100 booths under a Roder tent.
Shuttle buses to the ICC will be provided at the Indoor Stadium area for both the consumers’ and exhibitors’ convenience.
For the 22nd instalment of the fair, the organisers will showcase a light-hearted narrative as told by a group of cartoon characters representing a typical Brunei family.
Cardboard cut-outs of the CF Family will be placed around the venue, where visitors can snap photos of them to upload on their social media pages along with the hashtag #KeluargaCF to stand a chance of winning a brand-new Canon EOS 3000D.
The CF22 will be open to the public from 10am to 10pm daily, except on Friday, where it will be closed from noon to 2pm for the Friday prayer.
