It is certainly a premium business gathering for any business seeking to position itself as a trend-setter within its specialization.
“The City’s commitment to the success of the Fair is clearly justified by the number of businesses that have experienced sizable growth through their constant participation in the exhibition”, Mr. Philip Sithole, Head of Business Support, Durban Tourism & Markets, which organizes the Fair. It is a platform created by the City to fast-track business development, and instills entrepreneurial acumen and expertise; in order to produce innovative and successful enterprises that contribute to the overall economic growth of the City and the country at large.
The Business Conference will get underway the Durban Business Week by focusing on opportunities in the transport sector; from rail to port expansion, and infrastructural development by highlighting key property development projects within the City. The re-branded Fair will add depth to the exhibition experience by clustering similar products and services according to their sectors.
