Markex and World of Events 2011, also known as Markex Cape, will be held from August 23-25, 2011, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in Cape Town, South Africa. It is most significant event that will be focusing on all aspects of marketing, and intends to display all new products, services and ideas that are needed to promote any product and service in the market. The event will be providing the best B2B marketing opportunity to buyers and sellers of marketing, promotional, event management and branding goods and services. The expo will be featuring the new ‘Trade Only’ section launched at last year’s Merkex. The Trade Only section, which was introduced in response to a demand from wholesale suppliers, would be housing a targeted selection of South Africa’s leading corporate gift manufacturers and will provide the opportunity for more personalized interaction and sourcing by buyers and sellers of promotional goods. The expo is visited by scores of visitors from South Africa and around the world including trade visitors, event planners, buyers, public relations practitioners, sales managers, business owners, and similar others. Cape Town is well served by Cape Town International Airport, which is the second busiest airport in South Africa and third busiest in Africa. Being a popular tourist destination, the city is connected by several international airlines offering coach class flight and business class flights to Cape Town from the United States. South African Airways offers the most comprehensive flight schedules from the US to Cape Town regularly operating 20-hour, one-stop flights to Cape Town with a short stop in Johannesburg. Since the flight will be long haul, it will be good for travelers from the US to buy air tickets and fly business class to Cape Town to avoid stress and make their journey comfortable.
This biennial event in Cape Town will be offering much more than just promotional space. Trade visitors from the US planning to travel by cheap business class flights to attend the expo should contact their travel agent to get the best airline discount on their tickets. Besides South African Airways, US travelers may also opt to travel by Delta Air Lines, British Airways, Lufthansa, Air France, KLM, and several other airlines. Markex Cape will indeed prove to be a perfect platform and would be providing the visitors with a comprehensive and dynamic showcase of leading suppliers to the marketing and promotions industry.
