Annual Stettler Trade Show proves a hit with local residents

The annual Stettler Trade Show proved to be a smashing success this year, attracting many from the region to check out a range of displays, products, speakers and other highlights at the Recreation Centre.

“It went really well,” said Donna Morris, project manager with the Stettler Regional Board of Trade.

There was really something for everyone to check out and enjoy, including all kinds of entertainment that had been booked to run over the course of the weekend as well.

Another exciting highlight this year was the Artisans Market DIY Stage.

“The Artisans Market was a great new addition,” said Morris. “We are hoping to expand that next year – and next year is our 40th anniversary. So we will have a little bit of change to the floor plan.”

Feedback has indeed been encouraging.

“I do have quite a few vendors who are interested in returning,” she said. “It’s also very family-friendly, so we will be expanding on a lot of those kinds of things, too.”
