SARCDA International 2015 is up and running and trade buyers are flocking in droves to what has become one of the highlights of the local gift, toy and décor retail buying calendar. The exhibition is open daily from 09:00 to 17:00 until 15 March 2015 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand. And, if you don’t feel like sitting in the traffic to get there, just hop on the Gautrain, we’re running free shuttles between the station and the Convention Centre throughout the exhibition. Even during load shedding – which is fast becoming the bane of all events – we’re still open for business, with a back-up generator laid on to kick in when Eskom goes down. You can register at the exhibition – be sure to bring proof of your status as a retail trade buyer in the form of a copy of your company’s VAT or registration certificates. SARCDA’s exhibitions are reserved exclusively for bona fide retail trade buyers. SARCDA International is truly a world-class exhibition thanks to the amazing stands showcased by our exhibitors. We recognise this with our Stand Excellence Awards and an independent panel of judges visited the exhibition on the first day to do the judging. Gold, silver and bronze awards are made in each of three categories according to the stand size. Here are all the winners:
