Giveaways galore at Nunavut Trade Show in Iqaluit
30th annual trade show is open to the public on Thursday starting at 10 a.m.
The City of Iqaluit’s three-in-one pen, ruler and level could come in handy for anyone who needs to measure something that’s only three inches long.
And who doesn’t need an Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami hockey puck? Or a stress ball shaped like a shipping container?
These are just some of the many freebies available at the Nunavut Trade Show this week at the Arctic Winter Games arena in Iqaluit.
Organized by the Baffin Regional Chamber of Commerce, the trade show is an opportunity for businesses, government departments and social service agencies to showcase their products and services.
One way they get their names out in the public is by giving away a wide variety of novelties with their logos splashed on them. Pencils, pens, lapel pins, shopping bags, baseball caps are trade show staples.
After exhibitors spent Wednesday showing off to each other, Thursday is the show’s public day, where anyone can attend and learn about some of the organizations doing business across the territory and fill a tote bag with giveaways and baubles. It runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
