Africa's first focused trade fair for furniture, décor and design has launched

On 10 July, the doors seamlessly opened to what promises to continue to be the most important decor, furniture and retail event on the African continent. This was the inaugural Inspire Trade Expo, which ran until 12 July 2014 and was the brainchild of expo genius Rina Fortmann, who was not only a director of SARCDA for many years, but who also chaired EXSA (Exhibition Association Of Southern Africa). This show was a properly controlled trade show where every single visitor had to pass a host of stringent criteria in order to be allowed access, due to the focus being on quality trade visitors instead of thousands of consumers.

Finally Africa showcases a dedicated decor, design and furniture expo

Rina Fortmann is a formidable and well-known name in the expo industry, not only as a past director of SARCDA but also the former chairperson of EXSA. With this backing, she undoubtedly has a wealth of hands-on experience. The motivation which drove her to launch Inspire Trade Expo, was primarily driven by the need in the industry to have a focused trade platform as well as listening to influential industry professionals that drove her to launch this show.
