Tsumeb gears up for Copper Festival


As the days are drawing near to the most anticipated event of the mining
town, the Tsumeb Annual Copper Festival (TACF), the municipality of the town is planning to host a gala dinner before the event.
The date for the festival has not been determined yet, but it is billed for sometime towards the end of October.
Tsumeb's Economic Development Officer, Lemmy Geingob said the dinner will take place on 15 September 2013, in Tsumeb.
He says the event will be held under a black and white colour theme with the purpose of raising funds to cater for the services provided at the festival.
“The event is also aimed at creating a conducive platform were business people can exchange information in order to benchmark their businesses,” adds Geingob.
Geingob further added that businesses who wish to attend the event are required to pay N$8 000 per table.
“A large number of companies have already booked their tables, but I invite more companies all over Namibia to come and join us,” he says.
However, he says the dinner is not exclusively for businesses, but individuals who are also interested may attend if they pay an amount of N$800 for attendance.
