history oatf

Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair (OATF) is Namibia’s Premier multi sectoral trade and exhibition platform that is hosted annually in the northern town of Ongwediva in the Oshana Region. The first OATF was opened in the year 2000 by the Founding President of the Republic of Namibia, his Excellency Dr. Sam Nujoma and since then, has grown into a remarkable business, marketing and networking platform with unlimited opportunities.

OATF is a great event to explore the full potential of trade, business and investment opportunities that Namibia and the rest of the world offers. While opportunities for exhibiting at OATF are open to all sectors of the economy, exhibitions are carefully selected to achieve a fair representation of most, if not all, economic sectors including international exhibitions. The multi-sectoral dimension of the trade show is creating a unique character of the fair by bringing together emerging entrepreneurs, business and public sector leaders under one roof with a common objective.

Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair is hosted at the modern Ongwediva Trade Fair Centre. By virtue of its strategic location, excellent infrastructure, facilities and services, the center offers a conducive environment for national, regional and international business forums and exhibitions.
