SAITEX is Africa’s biggest business opportunities event, offering thousands of international business connections to help develop your small business network with like-minded entrepreneurs, suppliers and customers.

Great Expectations!

This year, SAITEX is expecting more than 16 000 eager visitors to meet a record 1 000 exhibitors from 45 countries around the world. More than 3 500 types of products and services will be on show, including tools, hardware and building supplies, houseware and homeware, appliances, consumer electronics, medical technologies and equipment, IT products and services,  construction materials, plant equipment, cosmetics, textiles, footwear and garments, and many more. While you’re there, pop over to Africa’s Big Seven (AB7) and discover thousands of food products, beverages, machinery and equipment – your new business might start in the food industry!

“If you are currently running a successful business or thinking about starting one, SAITEX is Africa’s most cost-effective networking and deal-making platform for all business owners and entrepreneurs in search of new opportunities,” says show organiser John Thomson. “For 22 successful years, SAITEX has been a wellspring of new products, latest trends, new suppliers, untapped markets and new customers, locally and from around the world.”

Who’s Who at SAITEX

In addition to the many exhibitors from Brazil, India, China, Indonesia, Poland, Turkey, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Sri Lanka, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe, visitors can also discover spectacular first-time national pavilions from Peru and Eastern Europe.

Aptly named “The China Year in Africa”, the Chinese pavilion is bigger and more impressive than ever, with 191 exhibitors showcasing quality products including electronics, power tools, crafts and accessories, clothing and sportswear, ceramics, solar products, lighting, furniture and much more.

Opportunities for entrepreneurs: Exclusive Presentations from Industry Experts.

SAITEX is officially endorsed by the City of Joburg (CoJ), which will host a number of FREE seminars by top industry experts speaking on various business topics aimed at attracting investors, and encouraging manufacturing and job creation.

“Most people never get wealthy simply because they are not trained to recognise opportunities right in front of them.”

“SAITEX is a haven of opportunities for small start-ups to big businesses,” adds Thomson. “Our mission is to provide entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners with a solid platform to network with suppliers and customers, introduce their businesses, products and services, discover latest trends and expand their markets.”

Small Business Promotion at SAITEX
