The 7 millionth visitor to BT 1 fairs greeted!

On September 6, the International Exhibition Company BT 1 greeted the seven-millionth visitors Guntars Grūdups, who together with his family arrived from Liepaja to Riga Food 2014.

"Two full, two children, one cat and one dog ticket, please!" he teased the ticket agent not knowing that he buys the lucky seven-millionth ticket. Visiting the Riga food fair has become a tradition for Guntars Grūdups.

"For 18 years in a row in September we go to Riga and attend the Riga Food Fair. It happens that this time has turned the most successful," Guntars, who is professionally engaged in food production and marketing, told.

"We have successfully opened the new season with Riga Food and now we are greeting our seven-millionth visitor," Viesturs Tīle, COB, said and invited the Grūdups’ family to attend all BT 1’s fairs this season free of charge. The Riga Food project manager Rolands Nežborts endowed the lucky visitor with an amazing gift basket full of yummy goods kindly offered by the Riga Food participants.

"Hopefully, the rest of the day will turn out equally well!" Gundars Grūdups said goodbye and set off to see the vast exposition.
