SAITEX – Business Opportunities of the Year
Jun 29th 2012, 08:57
The world is coming to Africa – SAITEX, to be specific. In the middle of July, the Southern African International Trade Exhibition will host over 800 international exhibitors from 40 countries with only one goal – to do business! Africa’s biggest business opportunities expo takes place over three days at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand from 15 to 17 July.
“SAITEX at Gallagher is the only place where agents, entrepreneurs, importers, distributors, wholesalers, chain stores and retailers meet the world!” says John Thomson, organiser of the massive expo. “It’s the biggest range of international business opportunities ever gathered in one place on the continent.”
The giant expo shares the venue with Africa’s Big Seven, the biggest food and beverage expo in Africa, with five huge halls and thousands of products from around the world.
