Design Indaba Expo 2008
The Design Indaba Expo is dubbed as a Creative Industries platform, and that cannot be argued. Since its inception in 2004, the expo has been a bridge between the world and South African creatives, strengthening market access opportunities for and exports of SA’s goods and services. The DTI has therefore been backing up this initiative since and is looking quite determined to carry on for years to come. Through the years there has been great improvement from one expo to the next. The number of exhibitors and visitors has also increased from year to year, giving more local talent opportunity to share their traits with the rest of the world.
This spectacular expo surely promises to be bigger and better than last year’s one. It will take place from the 23rd to the 26th February 2008 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, showcasing local designers in all sectors ranging from décor, visual media, advertising, new media, publishing, jewellery, interior, graphic design, product design, architecture and film. This confirms the unique talent we possess as South Africans and why we need to grow this talent. This is what the Design Indaba Expo is all about, and they definitely have my vote.
