INTRODUCTION

Marketing is a fundamental business function which identifies unsatisfied needs of consumers and creates products and services which are geared towards satisfying needs.
 Four major marketing factors are involved; these are known as the marketing mix or the four Ps. Namely product, place, price and promotion, which the firm uses to operate successfully within the marketing environment.
 Products services or business promotion is a vital marketing function because without awareness there will be no demand for products or services.
 In traditional African economics, marketing is simple and mainly centres on buying and selling. Trade exhibitions or trade fairs are a form of promotional device that enables companies to show and demonstrate their products to both middlemen and ultimate consumers. Although order can be taken, exhibitions (trade fairs) are primarily designed to lay the ground work for future sales, promote public relations, provide feedback for advertising relations.
 In modern times, trade fairs have become specialized activities promoted by the chamber of commerce, government, trade groups and large multi-national companies even international and intergovernmental organizations. These organizations sponsors and supports the fair creating a means of promoting business concerns and the needs they serve.
