Mr. Nikom Lertmalligaporn, the President of Worldex G.E.C. Co., Ltd., said that Worldex has core business in organizing local and international trade shows. The Company had co-organized Kids of the World with Impact before KIDSCOVERY WORLD. With experience in many business lines in several countries, Worldex can foresee the trends and movement of different industries.

The Company sees that the products for children and families still enjoy the continued growth. The parents purchase items for their children by considering the safety, high

standard and multi-purpose use. These items must also support both physical and mental development of the children.

Mr. Nikom added that the Company invites the entrepreneurs in the industry to participate in this event, which is well received. Next, the Company plans to strengthen the overseas network and invite the manufacturers in foreign countries to set up the booths in International Pavilion zone. This will color up the event and bring new themes to the children and family trade show. Furthermore, it will stir the movement in the industry of toy and children products and ensure a wider range of selection.

Ms. Chanida Intaravisut, Managing Director of Rakluke Group Co.,Ltd., revealed that the Company is now more aggressively targeting the event marketing to extend the content business for children and families as well as pre-

teens, which is the Company’s strength. “KIDSCOVERY WORLD”, the edutainment fair co-organized with Impact and Worldex, will be planned as a grand annual event.

In this first year, the event is presented under the concept of “Tales & Toys”, sponsored by Thai Life Insurance. It will be divided into two zones to ensure that the participating children and parents will enjoy the event while having a good memory and feel impressed with toys and tales, which will lead to their enhanced imagination, love for reading and learning development.

In the 2,000-sq.m. Tales zone, the children will enter the world of fairy tale. Under the concept of mini indoor theme park, this zone is featured by the arts of storytelling and other supporting activities, such as listening to the music, singing, games and discussion. They will also be entertained by a parade of clown, magician and four classic tales, namely Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant Slayer, Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, and Hansel and Gratel. These activities aimed to ensure that the children will learn the tales in a fun way and different angles.

Toys zone features toy shops and 1,000-sq.m. plaza that provides a variety of fun-filled activities, such as the children’s all-time favorite cartoon characters, Tamiya car race, “Robot for Kids” contest and game machines. On the area of 8,000-sq.m., about 150 booths offer a wide array of toys and the exhibition displays the development of Thai and international toys.

“In this event, we intend to create the children’s true learning experience, which cannot be found in the classroom. Four tales will be presented in different angles. For instance, everyone can become Snow White only if they constantly do good deeds. The dwafs are not a freak; they are human beings just like us. In Hansel and Gratel, we will teach the children to have wits and obey their parents,” said Ms. Chanida. The event also different types of toys so that the children can learn and play in groups. This will teach them the discipline and how to share.

More activities include storytelling, painting contest and storytelling performance. Another must-attend stage performance is the longest kid fashion show in Thailand. It gives the children a chance to fully express their talent. The parade of cartoon characters and the characters from four tales will also entertain the visitors.
