  • VIRTUAL Trade Fair is a classic story reminding us that – ‘in every crisis lies opportunity’. Recognising the devastating impact of the national lockdown on all businesses (in particular, the Expo/Exhibition industry & the Retail Mall sector, both vital marketing platforms for many businesses), business members at Fourways Community Chamber of Commerce – – set about identifying member resources to develop an innovative stop-gap measure for all businesses to utilise ASAP
  • Virtual Trade Fair was developed within the first 21 days of SA’s national lockdown. The concept was deliberately designed to be simple, affordable & cost-effective for maximum participation of exhibitors & visitors. The developers view the concept as a continuing work-in-progress model to accommodate feedback, new ideas, innovations & improvements
