First ever carnival trade show comes to the UK this summer

CARNIVAL TIME: The first ever Carnival Expo is expected to draw over 2000 attendees

AHEAD OF Notting Hill Carnival, the first ever carnival trade show will début in London next month.

The Carnival Expo, the first ever event of its kind, will launch at the Kia Oval in London at the beginning of August, a few week's before Europe's biggest carnival.

The Carnival Expo will be a trade show embodying all of the components of carnival, but it will also feature live performances by some of the festival’s biggest entertainers.

The expo is the brainchild of Londoner Andrew Rajpaulsingh, a carnival entrepreneur, who has an extensive carnival background.

“It is the right time for a Carnival Expo - presenting the various aspects of carnival under one umbrella would certainly be an enriching experience," said Andrew.

According to the organiser: "The goal of Carnival Expo is to help develop carnival as a worldwide festival for everyone by inspiring, informing and entertaining. Aimed at a diverse audience, the expo is geared towards people of all cultures, races and creeds; those who are carnival enthusiasts as well as persons new to the festival."

Rajpaulsingh, who is Trinidadian by birth, believes that carnival is a gift to the world and asserts that various countries would be represented at the expo.


Carnival Expo’s main exhibit floor will host over 40 exhibitor stalls featuring carnival artists, creative enterprises, vendors and more. Patrons will be treated to the full gamut of the carnival experience as all forms products and services will be on display and demonstrated.

The expo is also keenly interested in education as assorted seminars will play an essential role in informing about the past, present and future of carnival.

But, what is carnival without entertainment? The event’s evening agenda will feature a live stage with scheduled performances from musical acts from the Caribbean diaspora, dancers and other cultural artists from the world over.

Carnival Expo is expected to draw over 2000 attendees in what is sure to be an electrifying environment. The event is scheduled for August 8-9 2015, with multiple sessions designed to enable everyone a chance to attend.
