Over 350 local businesses, craft beverage makers and artists will showcase and sell their craft at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) over the 2021 summer season.
With the return to Covid-19 lockdown alert level 1 and the holidays approaching, the CTICC is making the best of the situation by launching its calendar of locally grown shows starting on the 26 November 2021 with the This is Art Fair and the CTICC Gift Fair, followed by the Ultimate Beverage Show in January and the AllSport Expo in September 2022.
This is Art runs 26 – 28 November 2021 and top artists from the South African Art Society, Western Cape Art Society and Constantia Art Society will be on show.
The CTICC Gift Fair runs alongside the This is Art Fair and will involve a variety of local entrepreneurs selling health and beauty products, arts and crafts, clothing, toys, accessories, gadgets and jewellery all under one roof, and in time for your end-of-year gift shopping.
“After a challenging year for local shows, the CTICC is excited about safely opening its doors to our exhibitors and visitors. We are excited about the upcoming season and providing a platform for the local artisans and entrepreneurs to showcase and sell their goods. The CTICC has set a global standard with our C19 Care© protocols. The team developed these protocols in collaboration with the health, tourism, and events industry leaders to ensure that all visitors, exhibitors, and staff of the CTICC have a safe and memorable experience,” said Taubie Matlhabane, CEO of the CTICC.
The local show season also includes Ultimate Beverage Show in partnership with Musgrave Spirits and Schweppes, which runs 27-29 January 2022. The show is South Africa’s premium boutique beverage experience, starting with the one-day trade exhibition on the 27th, followed by a two-day consumer show. The show will showcase the finest local craft and small-batch producers in South Africa.
The AllSport Expo, in partnership with KFM and Momentum Multiply, runs 9-11 September 2022 and is the only local show to showcase the city’s wide variety of sports activities and health and wellness experiences under one roof.
