EXHIBITION EVENTS JULY 5 - 18
EXHIBITIONS are one of the best face-to-face marketing tools for businesses and they impact the countries and cities they operate in positively. A study by Grant Thornton on the economic impact of exhibitions in South Africa, conducted in 2015, showed that exhibitions greatly impacted tourism in the country.
Financial contributions were in excess of R23 billion through the 1 million visitors attracted into the country and this accounted for a third of the industry’s total contribution to the gross domestic product. Tourism from exhibitions also helped sustain an estimated 47 000 jobs.
