CLA Game Fair - online!

PUBLISHED: 17:51 17 July 2012 | UPDATED: 21:37 20 February 2013

Following the cancellation of the CLA Game Fair this year two online initiatives have been created to provide a virtual Game Fair via Facebook and Twitter to help exhibitors

CLA Game Fair helps exhibitors with online market place and social media


The CLA Game Fair has launched two online initiatives to help struggling exhibitors in the wake of the shows cancellation.


The show has created an Exhibitors Market Place Forum on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CLAGameFair/app_202980683107053 to give businesses that had planned to exhibit at the CLA Game Fair at Belvoir Castle a chance to sell their stock and to post offers and special deals.


The CLA Game Fair has also created a Twitter hashtag #CLABIZ to support rural businesses and provide a platform for promotion, networking, meeting customers and suppliers and driving sales.


CLA Game Fair Director Andrew Crawford said: We are keen to help exhibitors by using the strength of our brand to sell their goods online.


"They have been badly hit by the cancellation of the show. Many shows have been cancelled this year and we hope that the #CLABIZ hashtag and the Exhibitors Market Place Forum will do a little to improve what we know is a bad situation for them.
