Proudly South African, our national Buy Local Campaign, will be hosting the 8th Annual Proudly SA Buy Local Summit & Expo on Wednesday 12 & Thursday 13 March 2019 at the Sandton Convention Centre.
The South African government recognises local procurement as a stimulus for job creation and has developed and implemented a number of strategies to assist the local manufacturing industry with a renewed drive towards local procurement.
Recognised for its work and its ability to influence procurement in favour of domestic production, Proudly SA partners with public and private sector entities and civil society to drive the Buy Local message. By buying locally grown, produced or manufactured goods or services, businesses grow, thereby stimulating economic growth and job creation.
Running alongside The Buy Local Summit is the Expo component which will be held in Exhibition Hall 1. The Expo is an opportunity for Proudly South African member companies to showcase and promote their products and services.
This entire event forms part of Proudly South African’s commitment to promote sustainable economic growth through job creation and to contribute to the socio-economic welfare of South Africa.
The target audience includes procurement managers, CFOs, CEOs, MDs, captains of industry and government officials, SMMEs, entrepreneurs.
There are 200 exhibition stands available in Exhibition Hall 1. The Exhibition runs concurrently with the Buy Local Summit, whose delegates visit the exhibition. Members of the public can also register as day visitors to the exhibition only.
Exhibitors can register for a 3m x 3m standard shell scheme which includes a facia board, round table, two chairs, two lights and a plug point. Exhibitors will also receive a full page listing in the Summit Handbook.
**Please note that Proudly South African will not cover the costs of additional furniture, or of a custom stand. Any additional requirements to the standard package are by arrangement directly with our Exhibition Service Provider.
