Marrakech – Maroc Expo, the largest Moroccan cultural exhibition in the Netherlands, will open December 27 in the province of Utrecht.
Maroc Expo features all aspects of Moroccan culture, including Moroccan cuisine, fashion, and even traditional Moroccan weddings.
The Expo, which runs over two days, will focus on several themes, the Moroccan family, leisure, shopping and bazaars, the Neggafa show, fashion and beauty, art and culture, and comedy.
Visitors will have the opportunity to appreciate Morocco’s diversity and identity, as if they were in the Djema el Fna, the central square of Marrakech.
“The best tool to promote your beloved country is to experience it, feel it, taste it, and smell it, as if you’re in Morocco,” said Ahmed Bouzia, one of the managers of the first annual Maroc Expo which took place on December 28-29 of last year.
Maroc Expo presents Morocco and provides business opportunities for local businesses. It includes “partying with top artists from Morocco, buying your (second) home, exploring the business potential at the business platform, letting your taste buds feast on Moroccan cuisine, or discovering your treasure sale at the bazaar,” according to Bouzia.
The Expo will allow visitors to discover the beauty of the Moroccan woman, through a fashion show featuring the traditional Kaftan as well as modern fashion designs.
It will also suit lovers of shopping and the traditional bazaar, simulating the Djema el Fna square souq in Marrakech.
Although several hundred kilometers away from the beautiful Moroccan cities of Marrakech, Fes, Agadir, Chefchaouen, and Hoceima, the Expo offers the opportunity to discover the real Morocco.
Finally, the Maroc Expo will host a concert featuring several different types of Moroccan music, including Chaabi, Reggada, Rai and Rifia. Performers will include Daoudia, Tahour, Ahouzar, Abdelmoula, Kasba, M Bidaou, Hassan Twil, Kacem, Dj Hiba, Yahya Yousfi and Ismailia, among others. The expo will run from December 27-28.
