The DIT launched its Blue Flag Fair campaign to counter the rising cost of living by having vendors sell consumer goods at lower-than-market prices.

The three-day event at Saphan Hin will be a “district-level” fair, smaller than the previous fair at Sanamchai, which had organizational support from the DIT headquarters in Bangkok.

Thus the Saphan Hin event will comprise 80 booths selling consumer goods at below-market prices, but there will be no opening ceremony, staged entertainment or government-subsidized consumer staples at the fair.

Date: 5-7 July, 2012
Location: Saphan Hin Public Park, Phuket
