The Zimbabwe International Trade Fair,ZITF 2011 which was held from the 3RD to the 7th May saw Parks and Wildlife Management Authority making use of its Asambeni stand only as its other stand is still under renovations. The combined efforts from both marketing and Extension and interpretation presented Parks with a once in a lifetime chance to show the nation how good they are at putting up displays.

To prove how inviting the stand and displays were Vice President Joice Mujuru paid the Authority a visit and was so full of admiration at the displays which not only depicted a typical wildlife experience but an opportunity for our visitors to get a feel of the accommodation offered especially in Matopos National Park. What an owner this was from VP Mujuru .The stand also attracted the attention of Deputy Prime Minister Thokozani Khupe and Industry and Commerce Minister Professor Welshman Ncube.

We once again were privileged to have the Hon Minister of Environment and Natural Resources Management Cde Francis Nhema visiting our stand. Here and there the minister threw in suggestions as to how best we could maximize on the popularity of our stand.
It would be insensitive to the expectations of our faithful visitors if we do not mention that much as they visited the stand in their numbers they expressed disappointment in not seeing live animals which for the mere fact that we were exhibiting from inside hall number 3,we were not allowed by organizers to bring and meet their expectations. But that is not to say the situation will be the same next year. We hope and promise to surpass their expectations by far.
We also received interests from companies who wanted to take their employees to Matopos National Park where they could be in harmony with nature.
