Dear Sir/Madam

The third Papua New Guinea Coffee Festival & Trade Fair has been set for May 2 and 3 in the idyllic surrounds of Goroka, capital of PNG’s Eastern Highlands. The event first started in 2001 and has since grown in participation and popularity, now attracting both national and international media attention.

The Papua New Guinea Coffee Festival & Trade Fair is one of the Eastern Highlands’ biggest annual events, and provides a direct link between the expatriate/business communities and the region’s grassroots - PNG communities.

The underlying aim of the PNG Coffee Festival & Trade Fair is to improve prosperity for individuals and the business community through the promotion and development of coffee and agriculture. It also aims to re-focus national attention on productive work ethics and business practices.

We are hereby inviting your participation in this two day event by way of taking up a Stall. We are also actively seeking Corporate and Individual Sponsorships.

Stall fees have been deliberately reduced from last year’s fees to encourage greater stallholder participation. Low gate entry fees are also designed to provide a strong incentive for a high flow of visitors throughout the event. Details of stall fees and sponsorship levels are given below. Also included are ticket prices for the Coffee Ball, to be held on the evening of May 3.

The major sponsor will be given rights to use the PNG Coffee Festival & Trade Fair name in their own advertising programmes. All sponsors will be named on appropriate event banners, receive certificates of appreciation, be acknowledged in The National and Post Courier newspapers, as well as being constantly promoted during the actual festival. Importantly, sponsors will have the satisfaction of knowing they have provided targeted support to the economic sustainability of PNG communities, from business right down to the grassroots village level.

We look forward to your participation in this most worthwhile event.
To sponsor or participate, please contact our sales team: Mabel or Christine on Telephone: (675) 732 1602, Facsimile: (675) 732 3302, Email: png.gold@global.net.pg

Yours sincerely

Norman M Carver
