Previously held annually in June in Gauteng, the marketing and event industry’s definitive exhibition, Markex World of Events, will be held in August this year.

Attended by nearly 11 000 people in 2008, Markex World of Events promises even greater appeal, with the addition of a variety of interactive attractions, including, for the first time ever, The Loerie Awards Travelling Exhibition.

Another significant change to the show will see the creation of a new ‘trade only’ section in Hall 1, giving trade buyers the opportunity to view and source products and services in less public area. “With an exclusive coffee shop where trade visitors can relax in a quieter setting, the ‘trade only’ section will be a welcome addition for buyers seeking the opportunity to source products on a more personalised, one-on-one basis,” says Exhibition Director Lynn Chamier. Should you wish to apply for access to this area, please pre-register online with your company registration details, or provide them on registration at the show.

Building on the overwhelming success of the inaugural AdVantage Advertising Village in 2009, Markex will once again feature a dedicated interactive area where advertising agencies will visually display all aspects of advertising and branding to the marketplace with open exhibition stands. With a dedicated presentation corner and meeting area with casual seating and a wine bar, the AdVantage Advertising Village is THE place to network and gain valuable business contacts.

“Thousands of marketers flock to this definitive exhibition every year to stock up on ideas, concepts, inspirations and contacts for the year ahead. Markex & World of Events continues to grow year on year and has consistently attracted record amounts of quality visitors and exhibitors. In 2009, 309 exhibitors showcased their goods and services to 10 861 visitors, 85% of whom either made or intend making a purchasing decision and 98% said they would visit again in 2010,” comments Chamier.

Markex World of Events 2010 is a trade exhibition and will take place from 24 to 26 August 2010 at Sandton Convention Centre. The entry fee is R40 at the door, unless you pre-register on
