Normally it's in June or July. This time the Consumer Fair, in its 12th edition, will be held in August (21st to 25th) at the BRIDEX Hall in Jerudong. This edition has a special theme as it will known as the ASEAN Year Consumer Fair Part 12 with the them "Inspiring an Asian Lifestyle" in conjunction with Brunei's role as host nation for the ASEAN Summit 2013. So do expect some great stuff that will be featured from different members of ASEAN during CF12.
The interesting part of the CF12 is the collaboration with the Brunei Breast Cancer Group (BBCG) and IA Salon where they will run a charitable activity "Go Bald for a Cause" and the intention of this activity is to raise funds for the support BBCG. I believe this will be great move and this have been very successful in Malaysia where they actually raised millions for the "Go Bald" charity. This activity will be a great motivator and also to raise awareness on breast cancer.
There are also activities from Fun Bee Park and Reebok Crossfit 673 who are both making their debuts in the popular Consumer Fair. For those who aren't aware of Reebok Crossfit 673, it's a venue where you can learn about cross fit which is a growing trend in Brunei and did you know Mike Mogard, who runs Reebok Crossfit 673, was crowned the "Fittest Man in Asia" in the recent CrossFit Games Asia Regional event in Seoul, Korea. So for the upcoming CF12, they will be running a cross fit competition as well as conducting several fitness demo for the public.
