The 11th Rovaniemi Snowmobile Fair ended Sunday in the Lappi Arena welcoming this year’s snowmobile season.
 
According to the organisers, Lapin Messut Limited, more than 14,000 snowmobile enthusiasts and snowmobile trade professionals from across Finland and northern Europe visited the Europe’s biggest snowmobile fair.
 
This year the two-day event hosted about 167 exhibitors, including a number of traders from Norway, Sweden, Estonia, and Russia. 
 
The Rovaniemi Snowmobile Fair is one of the city’s most visible exhibitions and the biggest of its kind in the continent.
 
“Our aim is to introduce renowned snowmobile brands to the Finnish people and at the same time promote Lapland as an ideal place for snowmobile traders and sports,” Lapin Messut Limited Chief Executive Officer Mikko Vikström told the Finland Times.

He said the annual event is gradually becoming more and more popular and has turned into a part of the tradition of opening the snowmobile season in Lapland.
 
“For snowmobile enthusiasts, this event is a big boost and a source of great inspiration. However, we also welcome families and we have got a great response from visitors,” Vikström added.
 
Talking to the Finland Times, Jarkko Kettola, sales manager at Polaris, said every year they participate in the fair to show their brand to the snowmobile riders. “I think this a great opportunity to find new consumers and also to know the other companies.”
 
In addition to the snowmobile exhibition, different companies showcase their goods, including winter clothes, jackets, sports equipment, and other necessary useful things in the fair.

“Though it is snowmobile fair, I come with spectator glass cleaners and have found a number of customers,” said one of the stall owners, adding that the extent of the fair has now increased much and people from different strata visit it.
 
A number of old snowmobiles were also auctioned on the occasion outside of the fair venue.The 11th Rovaniemi Snowmobile Fair ended Sunday in the Lappi Arena welcoming this year’s snowmobile season.
