The fair will showcase the famed proprietor of Dale Hats & Pottery among 2,000 exhibitors and 300,000 products and a European market of over 73,000 International and UK direct buyers and an additional 525,000 buyers viewing the website at www.springfair.com.
Minister Liburd said in a statement, “Dale Kelley, a Kittitian has been creating a stir in the fashion world with her original designs in hats and pottery and now through the ingenious opportunity afforded by the Commonwealth Secretariat, Dale Hats & Pottery along with other eleven other female owned enterprises from the Commonwealth countries in the Caribbean and Africa will be attending the Spring Fair.”
She said the creative and astute Kittitian businesswoman will be on the world stage featuring her unique products.
“Not only does this fair bring together women entrepreneurs, but it provides a platform for networking and creating strategic partnerships. It is hoped that Ms. Kelley’s accomplishments would serve as a source of inspiration for aspiring Kittitian and Nevisian women entrepreneurs,” said the lone female government minister and parliamentarian.
In congratulating Ms. Kelley, Minister Liburd also praised the Commonwealth Secretariat for their continued support for women entrepreneurs and their insight in offering female proprietors the opportunity to participate at the prestigious Spring Fair.
The Fair is one of the events to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s II Diamond Jubilee on the anniversary of the 1952 accession on February 6th, 2012.
