Conferences and expos


South Africa expos calendar

Business tourism, including the trade show and expo industry, is booming in South Africa. And no wonder.

Well over 1 000 world-class conference and exhibition venues are available across the country, ranging from intimate bush hideaways to hi-tech convention centres, and all offering a wealth of side-tours: from walking with elephants to first- hand experiences of African culture to luxury shopping and relaxation.
