THE 15th Consumer Fair (CF15) officially came to a conclusion yesterday, recording over 146,000 visitors since it opened at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Berakas on January 28.
The impressive number of visitors who flocked to CF15 is a marked increase from the 128,000 people that the previous Consumer Fair – the Asean Consumer Fair – drew in June 2014.
Organised by D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd and supported by the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources, this latest edition of Brunei’s biggest consumer event featured a huge array of products and deals on offer by more than 400 participating local and international companies.
There were also a number of competitions and product demos that went on over the course of the five-day fair, as well as exciting attractions such as the epic NBT Dinosaur Journey Theme Park, the House of Reptiles and a Horror Fun House. Also seen at the Consumer Fair were mascots in the form of popular animated characters such as Big Hero 6’s Baymax and Transformers’ Optimus Prime and many more.
Before the final day of CF15 drew to a close yesterday, prizes were presented to 20 winners of the fair’s grand lucky draw.
Over the course of the Consumer Fair, visitors were asked to complete lucky draw forms presented at the entrance of the venue and drop them into lucky draw boxes by 5pm on Saturday. Eventually, 20 winners were selected from the submissions.
The winners were clearly pleased as they took home a wide variety of prizes, including dining tables and accompanying chairs, a 46-inch LED TV, refrigerator, sofa bed and Samsung Home Theatre sponsored by Intracorp (B) Sdn Bhd, as well as a marble dining table, a state-of-the-art refrigerator, washing machine, an Alcatel OneTouch Pop S9 smart phone, Alcatel OneTouch Idol 2S, and cash prizes sponsored by D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd.
The top two winners, Nadhirah binti Japri and Nurhafizah binti Hj Abdul Manan, were each presented with BIBD Wakalah Savings Accounts of $3,000 and $2,000 respectively, while Mohd Saiffulah bin Zakaria took home the third prize of a Philips 46-inch LED TV, courtesy of Intracorp (B) Sdn bhd.
On hand to present the winners with their prizes last night were D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd’s Managing Director Jackson Ting and Operations Manager Ngu Tiing Siang.
In addition to the grand lucky draw, prizes were also presented to winners of the CF15 DotRoot Technologies Instagram photo contest, who took home exclusive CF15 merchandise and three 3D printing coupons.
