African Utility Week 2011 – Africa business


Africa Business News – African Utility Week 2011

African Utility Week 2011 was held recently at the Cape Town Convention Centre. The event focused on industrial suppliers to the power and energy sector. Alternative energy options in particular where a big focus.

We once again worked with Goldwind. Originating from China, Goldwind now have offices on all continents and are actively engaged in dealing with our own government to the creation of windfarms here in good old Saffrica. South Africa’s Minister of Energy, Ms Elizabeth Dipou Peters, met with Goldwind representatives at the stand who flew in from all over the world for this event and to meet with Government and private investors.

The exhibit was a 6m x 3m, backwall only and incorporated a lockable and private meeting area, as well as a main reception counter and comfortable lounge. Smaller touches such as “business card” fortune cookies added some extra dimension.

Combining African, Asian and modern contemporary influences, this exhibit is fully modular and is to be re-used at future events around Africa. It can be adapted to fit a variety of spaces and can also be added to in order to increase its footprint size.

Goldwind furnishings

























reclaimed teak











The lounge furnishings were sourced from a variety of suppliers and are of reclaimed “distressed teak”


Unlike custom timber stands which are one-offs and hence very wasteful, this exhibit is re-usable in its entirety. Not one element is discarded in keeping with the sustainability of the product on offer.


So another succesful event for both client and ourselves.  It really also makes such a difference dealing with professional clients who know what they want.


Should you require a sustainable solution for your exhibiting requirements do not hesitate to contact ourselves.
