SANA Trade Fair: 12 March 2014

Not even rainy weather can stop us!

Arranging and coordinating our Trade Day, takes quite a bit of work and planning and with the rains that left our site muddy and extremely wet, some extra planning had to be done to ensure that the day would be a success. Even putting up shade ports and marking out stands became a slight challenge with the unrelenting rain delaying our work.

On Monday and Tuesday the site was a hive of activity. Due to the heavy rains experienced, some of the access road was inaccessible and we had to maintain strict traffic control of trucks coming to offload plants. The weather did not stop our exhibitors, and they were all building their stands and getting ready for the big day. A few vehicles got stuck in the mud and had to be recovered, but we were well prepared for this.

On Wednesday morning, although overcast and grey, the rain stayed away and later in the morning, the sun appeared and warmed up visitors and exhibitors. Visitors were welcomed by our friendly SANA students at the registration tent before entering the exhibition area. The show boasted 135 exhibitors and visitors were spoilt for choice. And by the end of trade we had over 500 people at our show.

As per tradition, exhibitors’ stands were evaluated and the top three exhibits identified. Thank you to our judges, Almarie Slabbert (Earth Outdoor Living) and Michele Coetzer (Garden Pavilion Brandmullers) for their assistance. Stand winners were:

Growers Exhibition:
1st Doonholm
2nd Tuberflora
3rd Colorweis

Allied Exhibition:
1st Starke Ayres
2nd Daschner Designs
3rd MayFord/Efekto

Thank you to exhibitors and visitors for supporting this show and your vital role in growing this event to become the biggest green fair in South Africa.

Last, but not least, a huge thank you to Charles Oosthuizen, VP Operations and the SANA team involved in the planning and execution of the trade day as well as our willing students – only with your help and teamwork did we manage to make this event such a success.
