The Trade Business Programme is a service that connects members of trade, both local and international, who visit the show with exhibitors, with the aim of facilitating one-on-one meetings to cultivate new business relationships.

100% Design South Africa attracts a high level of attention and attendance from interior design trade professionals as well as members of the consumer trade and media.

This due to the fact that its exhibitors constitute the country’s leading local and interior design brands and product designers, and because the show presents a numbers of curated feature displays.

Since its inception, the show has become South Africa’s premier platform for launching new products and presenting current ranges and lines to the industry.

100% Design South Africa is widely promoted via a marketing and communications strategy that supports its exhibitors, both in the months leading up to the show and during the event itself.
