Booking Form:  Trade Show 2019


The first trade show of this kind to be held in Mpumalanga, is set to take place at the Emnotweni Arena, Nelspruit, on the 30th July 2019.  The show intents to create a platform for suppliers to the hospitality industry to showcase their products and services to the hospitality establishments.  Rather than trying to make appointments with hundreds of hotels and guesthouses and take up their valuable time during busy days, suppliers will now be able to do proper exhibitions and demonstrations during this one-day event.

“Such an event is very important to any tourism-rich area and we wish to congratulate the Nelspruit Mbombela Local Tourism Organisation for their initiative in hosting the show”, says Linda Grimbeek, COO of KLCBT. “ The conveners responsible for all the arrangements are all in the hospitality industry themselves, and they know best what are the needs of the industry and what products and services they would hope to see as exhibitors.”

According to Riana Joubert and Michelle Higgo, they will invite suppliers of Information Technology, web development, photography, food & beverages, uniforms, booking platforms, pest control, beds & mattresses, furniture, amenities, décor, alternative energy, signage & printing, plumbing, electrical services, handy man services, cleaning & laundry, landscaping, security services and products, tours & transfers as well as local attractions.  They also intent to present live demonstrations by chefs and talks by other experts on industry related topics, at every hour on the hour.  The show will open at 10h00 until 18h00, followed by a networking cocktail function.

The layout of the show will be similar to that of the wine shows with more than 30 exhibitors.  The cost to exhibit will be R1000 for the day and will include basic furniture, lunch and entrance to the cocktail function.  Interested businesses can contact Linda Grimbeek per e-mail on linda@klcbt.co.za or call Riana Joubert on 071 876 6865.


Exhibitors can set up from 09h00 and doors open at 10h00.

The floor plan will be more or less the same as for the Wine Shows.

There will be live demos / talks on stage every hour, covering cooking demos, pest control, recycling, decor, landscaping, etc.
