The show provides an important platform to showcase Zambia’s products and also gives an opportunity for foreign businesses to promote their products on the Zambian market.
The first Show was held in 1919 and has since been held every year thereafter with the exeception of the years 1921,1941 to 1946 because of the first and second World Wars, and in 1966 as well due to Rhodesia’s Unilateral Declaration of Independence the previous November, which led to the occupation of a large part of the Showgrounds by the aircrew of the Royal Air Force.
