The Cayman 27 Island Living Show, which opens on Friday, 29 July, brings together a variety of local vendors who offer goods and services related to home, garden and lifestyle.
Around 30 vendors and exhibitors will be participating this year as the show celebrates its 10th anniversary.
Some of the vendors, including Home Gas, Woods Furniture and Design, Rugs Oriental and Hazard Management, are returning participants. Additional vendors are coming on board for the first time this year, said Monique Hather, a senior account executive at Cayman 27 and organiser of the show.
“Admission is free and visitors can learn about everything related to living in Cayman, from home security and energy savings to furniture and apparel,” she added.
The show, which started out as a home and garden showcase, has expanded to include all aspects of the island lifestyle.
Representatives from participating businesses will be on hand to talk about their products and offer “show only” specials, discounts and prize draws. In celebration of the show’s 10th anniversary, Cayman 27 will be giving away 10 Cayman Airways vouchers.
“The show also is an opportunity for the different, but related, businesses to network with one another,” Ms Hather said. “They generate a lot of partnerships from it.
“It’s different industries coming together, and right now we all have to work together.”
Show hours are 5-8pm Friday and 10am-5pm Saturday. It is being held at the Arts and Recreation Centre in Camana Bay.
“Last year the two-day trade fair drew thousands of people to Camana Bay and we are sure that this year will be an even greater success,” said John Hillman, Camana Bay’s director of sales.
“Camana Bay is really the perfect venue for an event of this size. We have ample parking throughout the Town Centre and our spacious Arts and Recreation Centre is able to accommodate the growing number of exhibitors.”
A complimentary shuttle service will operate between Camana Bay’s town centre and the Arts and Recreation Centre.
