SARCDA has one main mission: to put the right buyers in touch with the right exhibitors. We’re also big on making sure that our exhibitors get the maximum bang for their exhibition buck and that buyers enjoy a world class exhibition experience. To do this we are constantly keeping an eye on international trends, making sure that we keep up with the latest developments in our field.Despite the fact that retailers have been struggling in recent years as consumers find themselves with less and less cash to spend on gifts, toys and décor items, SARCDA has continued to enjoy the staunch support of its exhibitors. This is no doubt largely due to the fact that we keep attracting the right buyers. And they in turn keep coming back because our exhibitors are committed to sourcing the latest and trendiest products around. All in all it’s a win-win situation: creating opportunities for buyers and exhibitors alike. We are also constantly looking at ways to enhance our exhibitions and new additions to SARCDA International (which takes place at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand from 6 – 9 March 2014) include the introduction of the Quirky and Design Cafés, both of which will give buyers the opportunity to catch their breath and enjoy some good food and wine during their visit to the exhibition. We’re also welcoming 10 new exhibitors to the exhibition who will be showcasing some exciting new products including décor items, crafts, clothing and curios. With everyone increasingly needing to be connected 24/7 we’re providing recharge stations where you can relax and charge your smartphones, tablets and laptops. And, for buyers arriving straight from the airport (it’s never been easier than hopping on the Gautrain), we’ve created a secure luggage storage area. What’s more, SARCDA offers free shuttle buses between the Gautrain station and Gallagher Convention Centre during the exhibition. SARCDA provides a free child care centre, staffed by trained child minders, to ensure peace of mind for parents while they visit the exhibition (no children under the age of 16 are allowed into SARCDA exhibitions). After SARCDA International our next exhibition is SARCDA Christmas 2014 which takes place from 21 – 24 August 2014 at Gallagher Convention Centre. So if you are a trade buyer in the market for the latest and hippest toys, gifts and décor items make sure you visit www.sarcda.co.za and register online to visit SARCDA International (once you’ve complied with our simple verification process to confirm that you are indeed a genuine trade buyer you’ll be added to our database to receive invitations to all future exhibitions).
