This is what our exhibitors and visitors have to say about our shows.

Electra Mining 2016

Testimonial angle

It is important to see first-hand the capacity of our industry and Electra Mining Africa gives us this opportunity. It is a great place for us to demonstrate our manufacturing capacity.

David Makhura, Gauteng Premier

Our main focus is to assist local South African companies to export their products across the world. We see Electra Mining as the most important expo for both the general and mining engineering sectors.

Eric Bruggman, CEO, SACEEC

This is our 14th consecutive show and I love Electra Mining Africa - it’s a great show. It allows me to demonstrate the latest technology to all my customers. Where else do you get a week of the year to talk to all your customers? I call it the F1 of mining!

Peter Killian, Managing Director, Hi-Tech Machine Tools

We are regular exhibitors and consider it a meeting ground to see all our customers. This year we’ve had a good response from visitors and have generated good leads. There’s been a high volume of visitors. We look forward to being back here in two years’ time.

Willem Pietersen, Director, MMD

This is Becker’s 13th exhibition at Electra Mining Africa. We’ve had an excellent response from the show and generated several leads. The highlight this year is definitely the quality of visitor. With the industry changing, and the tough times we are in, it is very necessary to be here.

Ken Quick, CEO, Becker Mining

This is the first time that we have exhibited and we have gained good momentum. It is a good show to meet both potential and existing customers and we have generated a number of new leads and sales.

Peter Larsen, VP sales and Safety, Kal Tire

In previous years we exhibited our equipment, but this year we have no equipment on display. Instead we have smart technology including Virtual Reality (VR) and a mining tunnel. We have succeeded in attracting a new segment of the market. The Expo allows us to broaden our spectrum in the industry and we have seen a high volume of good quality people.

Simon Andrews, Sandvik

We’ve been at three Electra Mining shows previously. It has been a difficult year, but we’ve added more products to our range and we’ve had a good response from customers with many good leads generated. We have also sold a compressor generator and three dozers. Electra Mining is very important to us.

Hui (Bob) Wang, CEO, Everstar Industries

Our theme this year is complete mining solutions and the response has been great. We have had many of our existing customers visit us and we have got some solid leads. We are also having some great conversations with visitors. This is our second Electra Mining as Scania.

Becky Smith, General Manager, Scania

We'’'ve had some interesting discussions with customers and will be following up. Electra Mining Africa is a great launch pad into the local market as well as Africa. It also provides a great opportunity to meet with people from the same industry; something we do not often get the opportunity to do.

Konrad Mtys, Continental

We'’'ve been at the show a few times. It just gets bigger and better every time.

Jason Trum, Regional manager, DDL Equipment

T his is our 2nd time exhibiting – it’s a fantastic opportunity to access quality prospects all in one place.

Tracey Neale, Sales Product Manager, Kluber Lubrication

I’m blown away by the quality of the stalls. The exhibitors have really gone all out. The technology on show is also amazing

Jaco du Preez, Director, Khanyaled

This year the new technology on display is just fantastic.

Martina Mohoje, Accelor Mittal

This is my first time at the show and I have learnt a lot – it was very worth my while coming here.

Thapelo Maepa, Accelor Mittal

Madex 2017

Testimonial angle

We drew over 200 interested parties on the first day of Madex 2017, who have already registered for our social media courses. As a social media company, we would highly recommend companies operating within the marketing spectrum to exhibit. For visitors, it is definitely worth making your way to Johannesburg for these two days!

Conrad Travis David - Hashtag South Africa

Madex has been an incredible opportunity that has opened up conversational doors we've never had before. A great place for networking and it has been an easy process thanks to the organisers.

Jodene Shaer - Chat Factory

There were many young people at Madex, who came here hoping to find the future and it was nice to be able to enthuse them regarding the industry. We did get some good leads and it was a successful show.

Nicolas de Klerk - Expo Guys

Propak Africa 2016

Testimonial angle

The quality of visitors to the French Pavilion stands was exceptional and exhibitors have generated leads and hope to be signing contracts soon. The show has been great exposure for our French exhibitors. When we booked for the show we had 10 stands and then requested 4 more stands – so in 2019 we’ll hopefully be even bigger!

Camille Tricoire, Senior Trade Advisor for Business France

This year’s show has generated a number of quality leads and overall it has been good for us. We are very positive about Propak Africa and regard it as the preeminent packaging show in Africa which provides a good return on investment. We have already booked our space for Propak Africa 2019.

Cliff Rostoway, Bidvest Afcom

We conducted good business at the show with decent leads and sales. The show also provided us with the opportunity to meet up with many of our clients. We are very happy and the show met our expectations; so much so that we have already signed up for 2019.

Justin Tomsett, Acepak

We showcased our digital printing machines for the first time and they generated much interest. The show produced a good audience that generated good leads for us. Propak Africa works! We will definitely be booking again.

Paul Brouwer, SArepco

We have already confirmed for the next Propak Africa. This year we saw an increase in visitors to our stand and we met all our customers here. We also connected with a number of quality visitors from African countries such as Botswana and Namibia.

Michael Aengenvoort, Rotocon

The quality of the visitors to Propak Africa 2016 has not only been good, but they have also come here with doing business in mind. The show provided us with many leads and we also did some sales. We will be back in 2019.

Rob Franco, Graphix Supply World

This was our best Propak Africa ever and we have been participating in the show for over 12 years. We gained over 100 leads of which at least half are good quality leads. I anticipate of these, that 25% will add up to sales. We will be looking to expand our presence at the next Propak Africa in 2019.

Gerhard van Vuuren, Nampak

The long term investment into Propak Africa is a good one and it is a well-organised show. We will come back.

Lars Frochlich, USS Pactech

We had a lot of good quality people coming through which enabled us to gather a number of good leads. We will be back for the next show in 2019.

Samir Joshi, Shubham Extrusion Technik CS

The previous 2013 show had been very good, but the 2016 Propak Africa was even better. What I liked was the increased number of customers from Africa as this is assisting us to expand our business. We generated excellent leads from the show.

Juanita Stiehlerbreits, Hestico

As a brand building exercise and an opportunity to showcase our big machines, Propak Africa is the ideal event. This year’s show hosted more visitors that were decision makers and this enabled us to generate more leads.

Shaun Pillay, Pyrotec

Propak Africa 2016 was really good and resulted in some fantastic leads for us.

Michelle Penlington, Polyoak Packaging

What was very pleasing about Propak Africa 2016 was the number of visitors from Africa. This was very relevant to our business as we are expanding into the Continent

Lumka Skosana, Festo

The Propak Africa 2016 audience responded well to our vinyl-print-cut solution that we showcased at the show and we sold our machine on day one. We saw many people and also the right people.

Eric Yin, Advanced Machinery (AM)

This was our fourth Propak Africa and we had access to decision makers we would not otherwise have met. Many of the visitors were very interactive.

Anricka Breetzke, Courtlanders

We sold at the show itself and we are waiting to finalise another deal shortly. It was a good show.

Corne Pretorius, Nissei ASB

KZN Industrial 2017

Testimonial angle

We have been exhibiting at KITE since 1996 and find it is the only forum in KZN that brings together such a wide variety of market players. Visitors are spoilt for choice and it allows suppliers to coordinate their product ranges to provide a turnkey solution, all under one roof. The customer relationship and branding opportunity is extremely valuable and KITE also opens the doors for us to meet potential new customers. This year we are very focused on Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) and our stand therefore showcases solutions that are geared towards connectivity.

Antony Hittler - ifm

To date this has been our best KITE show ever. We took a decision to concentrate on two product lines - Alpen drill bits and ACCUD professional measuring tools - and the response from visitors has been amazing. There is a great mix of engineers, end users and suppliers here and not only do we have an unrivalled opportunity to promote our products, but we also find that the event allows us to network with fellow exhibitors with synergistic products and services.

Stephan Pretorius - Vermont Sales

Polydrum has co-exhibited at KITE on a number of occasions but this year we decided to have our own stand in order to showcase our extended range of products. Amongst these are the world's first 100%-plastic solar geyser unit. Designed for the African environment, they are extremely rugged and durable. We also launched a new range of rotor moulded water storage tanks and our modular jetties. We have had an extremely good response to all the products, underlining our opinion of KITE as the event to be at for local manufacturers.

Brian Fettig - Polydrum

Securex 2017

Testimonial angle

Securex is a really well organised African security exhibition, reaching the right target markets for us. The organisers are to be applauded for bringing the large players together and introducing industry innovation to the market. As one of the top 10 players worldwide, we see this as a perfect opportunity to introduce cost effective solutions to the African market.

Fritz Wang - Dahua

This year MiRO has decided to focus on integrated and converged wireless solutions rather than purely products. MiRO believes that it can leverage the experience it has gained in the wireless and telecommunications markets to benefit the security sector. There is a predominance of wireless networking technology as a trend and MiRO can capitalise on its experience in the sector. Securex has allowed us to access critical customers in a number of sectors.

Bertus van Jaarsveld - MiRO

This was our first time at Securex and the exhibition has exceeded all of our expectations. We had anticipated that South Africa would be our entry point into Africa but after exhibiting at Securex, we believe it is also the premier sales market for us in Africa. We have met a large amount of really high-quality potential distributors as well as new customers for our handheld IR scanners.

Jake Horwell - Nocturna UK

Securex was an unparalleled opportunity for us to meet clients face to face. We are confident that at least 30% of the people we interacted with, will become customers, with great interest being shown for our SecurityOne CCTV-access control integration solution.

Garth du Preez - Anviz South Africa

Interbuild Africa 2016

Testimonial angle

Interbuild Africa has been a worthwhile investment for us, turning new leads into customers. This year was no different. The show was well-coordinated with a helpful committee of organisers who were always willing to assist and offer alternative solutions.

Nkanyiso Msiya, Hilti South Africa

The professionalism demonstrated by the organisers made our first experience at Interbuild a very pleasant one. The show provided us with exciting new opportunities, including a multitude of hot leads, some substantial orders and the prospect of a new partnership. Interbuild Africa certainly brings the right type of people through the doors to achieve business objectives. We felt that it was worth the financial outlay, time and effort it took to bring it all together and look forward to reaping the rewards, as well as participating again in 2018.

Daphne Eva, Stonghold

Interbuild Africa provides an opportunity to touch base in a one-on-one environment with our existing subscribers and additionally, to introduce our service offerings to prospective clients. We launched our new website recently and it was the perfect setting to showcase our new features to the audience. This is a well-run show, openings for additional exposure are presented well in advance, the team is knowledgeable and go the extra mile in assisting exhibitors with making the most of the expo.

Lee Finch, Leads 2 Business

Interbuild Africa has given Builders the opportunity for us to demonstrate our expertise and capability beyond that of the retail market. We are well pleased with the quality of the leads we got as a result of our participation.

Elzette van Niekerk, Builders.

We feel that Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery did a great job, and it was evident that a great deal of marketing had been done to reach a local and African audience. With this in mind the show exceeded all of our expectations in terms of visitor numbers.

David Flury, Bohle Group

Markex 2017

Testimonial angle

We're celebrating 20 years of being in business and have been at Markex for 18 of those. You can't not be at this show, anyone within this space has to be at Markex. Our goals for this year's expo were to showcase our new products, to network with clients and potential suppliers, as well as to launch our new catalogue. We achieved all of these goals.

Sheri Stott - Captivity Headwear and Apparel

Markex 2017 was highly successful; we ran out of 1000's catalogues within three hours! We launched our new products and the visitors were eager to know about our gift solutions and giveaway products. This is a great platform to launch new products as clients can immediately interact with the brand.

Mark Lachman - Kevro
