Sale Stands

The organization of EIDA is adding a section within the framework of the event called Habibi Bazaar. The main idea is to create a place of trade stands with different products, accesories, clothing, etc., to be purchased.
First, in order to give more publicity to the products, we offer the interested customers a 15 minutes advertising space on any of the three days that the event takes place. In that way, you can show the products of your trade stand in an exclusive setting designed with lights and sound on a stage set up in Habibi Bazaar. This advertising space will be exclusively for those exhibitors who participate the whole three days of the event.
Habibi Bazaar will be opened since de beginning of the workshops, on Friday 21st September at 9:00 a.m. and it will remain open till the end of every gala show.
This place will be opened free of charge to all the public who enters into the Golden Center venue during the scedule of the EIDA. Free entry!
