Don’t miss out, book your place at Markex 2016

Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organiser of the all-new Markex 2016 promotional products expo, has announced that visitor registrations are officially open. Corporate visitors are invited to click on and follow the quick, easy registration to ensure free access to the general section of the show, which is running from 6 to 7 July this year at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.

‘If you are a marketing director or manager, CEO or MD, procurement manager, or business owner, you’ll want to visit the fresh, focused Markex 2016 show,’ said Joshua Low, event director for Markex at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery. Markex 2016 will take place in one hall this year, split into two separate parts; one providing pre-registered corporate buyers with free admission to a focused selection of promotional gifting experts, and the other section: a focused, invitation-only trade section aimed at resellers.

‘We’ve taken a new approach to this almost 30 year old event, tailoring it specifically to appeal to resellers of promotional products and their corporate buyers. Not only will you be able to see, touch and experience a plethora of corporate gifting products – from awards and apparel to watches and writing instruments, we’re also featuring a free seminar theatre covering the hottest topics in the industry today.’

Another first for this year’s show is extended trading hours, from 09:00 to 19:00 on the 6th of July. ‘The decision to lengthen the first day of Markex was to ensure that visitors wanting to attend after work would have the opportunity,’ Low explained. Also, watch out for the daily activity newsletter, which will include information on the demos, functions and competitions that exhibitors will be holding on their stands during the show. The show will feature more than 100 exhibitors and will expand over more than 600 square metres of floor space.

Please note that those corporate visitors that have not pre-registered online will be required to provide a business card for free admission, or alternatively purchase a R50 entrance ticket. For more information, please visit
