They say that when it rains on your wedding you will have a blessed marriage, well if this is at all true for exhibitions; the 2017 Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo certainly is blessed. With heavy downpours during build-up, a constant drizzle and occasional thunder storm during show days and another day of rain for break-down it was a wet, wet, wet, week and weekend. Definitely not ideal weather conditions for a home improvement show. But that did not deter the exhibitors who created a beautiful show and the visitors who showed up in their thousands.
What Exhibitors had to say:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your friendly team to have the trust in Eat A Bit to be part of the Homemakers Expo 2017! I think it gave me a lot of exposure and opportunities which I can use for future business relationships.”– Nini Strydom from Eat-A-Bit
“The show was absolutely fabulous. What an eye opener (we have never exhibited in the 12 years of our existence!). Looking forward to the PTA show.” – Mike Abraham from Stature Steel
