Showcase was a big success

The Rotary Club of Estevan, the Estevan Lions Club and the Estevan and District Board of Tourism, Trade and Commerce organized a very successful Showcase business expo this year. Nearly 3,000 people attended this year's Showcase, which was held from September 23 to 25 at Spectra Place. It marked the first time that Showcase has been held inside the new events centre.
There were 1,045 people who attended on September 23, 1,314 on September 24 and 613 on September 25, for total attendance of 2,975.
A total of 85 exhibitors were part of Showcase this year. They brought kitchen supplies, home furnishings, showers, electronics, agriculture implements, toys, food, jewelry and clothes to Showcase. Other exhibitors were selling real estate, telecommunication services and healthy living ideas.
Most of the exhibitors were located on the arena's floor. A protective covering was placed atop Spectra Place's ice surface. There were also a few outdoor exhibitors in front of the Souris Valley Aquatic and Leisure Centre.
Spectra Place can accommodate even more exhibitors.

Rotarians found several ways to be involved at Showcase. Some worked security during the overnight hours. Others volunteered took admission at the front entrance. And other Rotarians had booths at Showcase.
