Exhibition Testimonials

What do our exhibitors and visitors have to say about our shows?

Mark Nel

African Container Units

Interbuild Africa 2018

"The best thing that we get out of this show is exposure, more so than we get out of any other marketing platforms. When people come here and can actually see our units, the response is excellent. We've received a couple of very lucrative signed orders. Exhibiting at Interbuild gives us maximum return on investment."

Priscilla Wessels

A-OSH Expo 2018

"This is the second year that I’ve attended A-OSH EXPO, and I’ll be visiting over two of the three show days. I come to network and to gain information and feel that this forum is one of the best for keeping abreast with new information; I enjoy the variety of information available. The presentations are very informative and the speakers very well prepared. There was an even greater attendance at the seminars for 2018; in fact there was standing room only for some."

Madex 2018

"This is our first time visiting Madex and it's been very good; we've seen a lot of companies we could work with, with regards to services and suppliers. We do pop-ups and activations for big brands and came through to Madex looking for set builders, promotions outfits and novelty gifts. It's been very helpful to find some potential new suppliers. We could well be interested in taking a stand next year on the Markex side."

We’ve had some good leads."
