Trade show rescheduled to spring

Traditionally held in late September for the past 13 years, the annual Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce trade show has been cancelled and rescheduled for next May.
Citing an increasing dip in traffic over the past few years, Chamber co-ordinator Dawn Booth said yesterday that organizers are trying a new time of the year to see if it can boost public interest.
Booth noted the Chamber office has received many calls in the past few weeks regarding the fate of the trade show as exhibitors from both the district, and places like Thunder Bay and Winnipeg, expected to have received some information on the event by now.
The trade show was held on the third weekend of September for its first 10 years. It’s happened on the fourth weekend for the last three.
Complete exhibitor packages will be mailed out within the next few months. Any questions or concerns can be directed to Booth at 274-5773 or via e-mail at
