Owned and managed by the Thebe Exhibitions and Projects Group (TEPG), the Retirement Expo will offer a variety of products and services needed to plan for retirement and all that it encompasses.
TEPG Managing Director Carol Weaving says the expo and Century Property Developments form a perfect match. "Century has a unique understanding of the South African context, including the market's financial feasibility and sustainability, and is a trusted brand."
Century Property Developments' Waterfall Hills Mature Lifestyle Community, in the internationally acclaimed Waterfall Equestrian Estate, was named the world's best retirement development in the 2009 CNBC International Residential Property Awards.
Mark Corbett, CEO of Century Property Developments says: "We are extremely proud to be the presenting sponsor of this exciting new initiative, which is the first of its kind in Africa. Retirement is a way of life that is to be embraced and celebrated. Our research has indicated that today's retirees are, in general, healthy, active individuals who have great expectations of their golden years. Besides, they have worked their whole lives to reach this point."
Weaving says the sponsorship deal is a mutually beneficial one with significant marketing benefits for both parties.
Companies invited to exhibit at the Retirement Expo include financial and investment planners, retirement villages and lifestyle resorts, local and international travel planners, taxation advisors, government information services, property investors, legal and insurance advisors, health and nutrition experts and mature living products and services.
"The expo will help forty-somethings to pursue and finance their dreams," says Weaving, "and we will bring them appealing and exciting, yet trusted and well-established brands to choose from."
