Nakuru ASK show to utilise e-ticketing

11 June 2013, 14:08 Steve Wambugu

Nakuru ASK show Chairman John Karanja has said this year’s entrance tickets at showground will be sold electronically to reach out to more people.

Karanja added that the new method of e-ticketing will help the public from cuing for long hours when attending for the show.

“This year’s show will be going digital because our tickets will be sold online using the new method of e-ticketing which we hope will enable many people acquire the tickets easier,” he said.

He also said that the public can start booking for the tickets online from the last week of this month.

Speaking on Saturday during the exhibitors' meeting in Nakuru, the Chairman said that more than 100 exhibitors had confirmed attendance to this year's show.

He added that, compared with last year’s Agricultural show, only 75 exhibitors attended the event.

“More than 100 exhibitors have confirmed attendance to this year’s show and there is a possibility of reaching to around 160 people within the remaining days,” he remarked.

Karanja further added that this year’s show will run for five days starting 3rd July until 7th July 2013 under the same theme used last year, “Enhancing Technology in Agriculture and Industry for food Security and National Growth”.

He said this year’s show will officially be opened by President Uhuru Kenyatta together with Nakuru County Governor Kinuthia Mbugua.

At the same time, hawkers were warned that they will not be allowed to sell their products at any exhibitor's premises.

Chairman Karanja said the hawkers will be given a designated area to sell their products without intruding with other major exhibitors.

He also said security will be well beefed up before, during and after the events.
