By BBN Staff: The National Agriculture and Trade Show (NATS) Committee under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment and Sustainable Development has announced the dates for the NATS 2017 as the 28th, 29th, and 30th of April.
The event will be celebrated under the theme “Let’s Get Growing”.
Preparation of the grounds is currently under way and the committee informs all interested persons that the reservation and sale of concession stands, food stalls, open spots and commercial booths have commenced. Right of first refusal will be granted to 2016 lease holders and as such those vendors will have until March 17, 2017 to confirm their desire to re-establish their booth leases.
Those vendors are being asked to contact the Ministry for information on deposit of payment and signing of Lease Agreement.
This preference exists except where there was a reconfiguration of the grounds and/or removal of booths, in which case that space is no longer available for sale.
Effective Monday, March 20, 2017 potential new vendors, or those wishing to relocate to a new location, will be invited to visit the NATS headquarters (located on the show grounds) to view available spaces and complete the necessary transactions.
Vendors with down payments will have until April 14, 2017 to complete their payments after which that deposit becomes non-refundable.
