The South African Top 100 Trade Shows

There may be some dispute over the exact numbers and ranking system but here is their list of Top trade shows in South Africa.

Quick Take Aways:

The Automobile industry dominates the Top 10. With, Automechanika South Africa and the Johannesburg Motor Show ranking 1 & 4 respectively.

According to the Automechanika South Africa website, they have 547 Exhibitor companies
(383 international companies from 25 countries, 30% South Africa, 70% International) and a visitor count of 9 450 for the 2011 event.

Compare that with the No1 on the worldwide list  being, the Magic Apparel Show in Las Vegas, which has over 5 000 exhibitors and 60 000 visitors, you can see a massive difference in numbers. (And the India International Trade Show has over 100 000 visitors.

But remember the judging criteria does not necessarily focus on the highest numbers. For instance, Electro Mining which ranks number 4 on the South African list, triumphs Automechanika on both visitor and exhibitor stats. (Electro Mining – Exhibitors 730 and visitors 35 000). The Johannesburg Motor Show has a target of 250 000 visitors.
