The lights and ornaments getting parks, stores, houses, streets, and avenues in the limelight at Christmas are the tip of the iceberg of a plan kicked off with six months in advance by the Christmas decoration sector, where sales are expected to reach BRL 1.3 billion this year. This amount is even higher if we take into account projects for big spaces, as pointed out by the Brazilian Shopping Center Storekeepers’ Association - Alshop, which won’t be less than BRL 400 thousand.
From the total earned in this sector, next to 80% result from deals made or started at Natal Show – Christmas Articles, Decoration and Gifts Trade Fair, the leading event for market business which now, in 2016, is in its seventh edition, to be held from June 3 to 6 at Expo Center Norte, in São Paulo.
