Edwards continues: “Considering the current economic uncertainty in our country and around the world, most exhibitors had a brilliant expo, selling products and generating leads for months to come. Our for the love of CONCRETE Design and Art Competitions raised a hefty sum for DARG (Domestic Animal Rescue Group), which we know will be spent well. We’d specifically like to thank Johan Coetzee and his team of experts of World of Decorative Concrete (WODC) for their continued support of this project and for their hard work. They went all out to ensure it was not only inspiring, but also a feast for the eyes.”

According to Edwards, this year’s workshops attracted visitors from far and wide. “The Home | Tuis Theatre and WODC Concrete Workshop were a beehive of activity, which just shows that people are turning to DIY projects and learning new skills to beautify their homes.”

Edwards concludes: “We’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all our exhibitors, visitors, sponsors, service providers, the media and our staff for their contribution to the success of this year’s show. We’re absolutely thrilled and have already started planning our 2019 expo.”
