This unique annual event being organized by the Green Oasis Associates Ltd (GOAL), is to provide a window of opportunities for active interaction between entrepreneurs, buyers, manufacturers and distributors of various children educational, play and consumer products, publishers and booksellers, state officials, policy and decision makers, academia and a host of other stakeholders who promote services for early childhood in Africa and beyond.

With one of the world's largest populations, Africa does offer excellent prospects for ECCE, Toy, Baby & infant products, Stationery and Book markets. Consequently, many exhibiting companies from over 30 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East see a huge potential in the African market and would like to use this Fair as a gateway to Africa. Over 200 exhibitors representing 300 brands from 30 countries around the world are participating in this 3-day event.

The event incorporates Back to School and Toy Expo, Baby & Infant Products Expo and Stationery, Books and ECCE Programs Expo, giving visitors, early childhood professionals, students and parents opportunities to learn about services, resources and products to help all children reach their full potential and to establish new business relationships.

The theme of this year's event -'The Role of Toys in the Development of Children'- will focus on the importance of culturally appropriate toys and creativity in early childhood education settings in the African continent.

As part of the activities of the Fair a three day international conference is to be held on the theme of this year's Fair with the aim of bringing together experts and professionals from diverse backgrounds like industry, education, research and practice for inter-disciplinary work.

The conference is to develop a vision, work out action plans and to share experience and vision on the issues of children and toys.

It is also hoped that the conference will provide an international platform to reflect and act on contemporary conditions of child and society and on the role of toys and play in the child's development and education in Africa.

This three-day exhibition will feature a Grand Gala Award Ceremony to award outstanding creative and innovative players and products during the Fair.

It will also feature policy addresses and interactive sessions with national and international educational authorities, education stakeholders and networking opportunities between participating Schools, parents/guardians.

So mark your calendar and make it your mission to be part of Africa's largest international trade exhibition for back to school, toys, baby and infant products!
