In order to show the full range of color items for decoration, construction and education, they organize the first Expocolor fair, which will be held from October 4 to 6, from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., in the La Riviera lounge, located on Simón López Avenue No. 326. Admission is free.
In this fair, organized by Nicolás Petit – audiovisual artist – supported by the Bolivian Color Association, there will be 30 exhibitors that will offer products (national and international) and various services. In addition, free talks, workshops and competitions will be held for all audiences led by experts in various areas.
Petit explains that Expocolor is like having two fairs in one, because there is a part that is “all about decoration in paint and coatings, there are products for houses, cars and industry,” he says.
The other part is the expopapelería, in which products and services related to education will be exhibited as school, office and craft materials, ideal for developing creativity, art and graphics.
Upon arriving at the site, attendees will be able to identify that on the left side of the La Riviera lounge there are all the exhibitors of the decoration and construction area, and on the right are the education stands.
For manufacturers of both bookstore and stationery and decoration and construction, maintaining a close link with the final consumer is essential, because they know first-hand the daily needs that exist in their fields, explains the organizer.
Petit says that people can buy the products at direct prices from the importer or manufacturer, by major or minor.
All attendees upon registration will be registered and given a credential that serves to enter the event three days. If they participate in the free talks and workshops, they can obtain a digital assistance certificate.
