HOTT3D completes further projects in Africa

HOTT3D completes further projects in Africa

HOTT3D is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed two projects further into Africa. The projects for clients, SAINT-GOBAIN and Fresnuis Medical Care were recently completed in Nairobi and Gaborone respectively.

SAINT-GOBAIN

The project for SAINT-GOBAIN, innovators in making living spaces more comfortable, cost-efficient and sustainable worldwide, was a great adventure and learning experience for the HOTT3D team.

The HOTT3D team, designed and produced the new SAINT-GOBAIN showroom at its offices in Cape Town before shipping all materials to Nairobi, Kenya for installation. Operations Director, Barnaby Richards flew up and headed up the onsite installation team, ensuring the smooth and on time delivery of the project.

 

Fresenius Medical Care

In its second project in Botswana, HOTT3D was asked by client, Fresenius Medical Care to design, deliver and install an exhibition stand at the first, ‘Botswana International Renal Conference’, which was held at the Cresta Lodge in Gaborone.

Fresenius Medical Care specializes in dialysis and the treatment of kidney (renal) disease & failure, Haemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis.

The event saw delegates from Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Democratic Depublic of Congo, South Africa, Mozambique, Swaziland, Lesotho and India in attendance.

Liam Beattie, HOTT3D MD commented that, “these projects illustrate perfectly how well South Africa is positioned to service countries throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. We look forward to do further projects into Africa.”

If you have any African exhibition services related inquiries, please contact HOTT3D at info@hott.co.za.

Modern Exhibition Stand Design

 

Exhibition Stand Design

Exhibits that work the best, create a space that is immediately eye-catching and makes the delegate want to interact or at worst have a closer look. Open, welcoming stands definitely work far better at attracting interaction than stands that are closed off. Though this type of exhibition stand design does depend on the intended use of the booth.

All of the example stands we have selected are brilliant in their own right and have been chosen because of the way they have created an extension of the exhibiting companies brand.

As always, budget plays a huge role in what can be achieved. As does the allocation of space by organisers, but on the whole the philosophy of how the stand is designed would remain the same no matter the stand configuration.

Automechanika means business and business means Automechanika

With co-located trade shows Futuroad Expo and Scalex Johannesburg, 27-30 September at Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec
Every two years the unique business platform for the Automotive Service Industry that is Automechanika Johannesburg provides the optimum networking and business opportunities for the industry.

Automechanika Johannesburg is the only trade show specifically serving the interests of the automotive service sector and ever since its first edition in 2009, has become entrenched on the sub-Saharan African motor industry business calendar as an event where involvement, be it as an exhibitor or a trade visitor, is an imperative.

With its sub-Saharan African reach and large numbers of participating international exhibitors, Automechanika Johannesburg is a truly international business platform where business opportunities abound across the full spectrum of the automotive aftermarket. Networking, marketing and sales opportunities are nowhere as evident as at this uniquely structured event.

A fresh development for 2017 is that two all-new trade shows, Futuroad Expo (Trucks/Buses/Commercial Vehicles) and Scalex Johannesburg (Logistics and Materials Handling) who share a host of synergy and in terms of product profile, industry interests and sub-Saharan business objectives with Automechanika Johannesburg, will be co-located with Automechanika Johannesburg to establish the largest business platform of its kind on the African Continent. This is a timeous and necessary development as cross border business across all sectors of the automotive sector has become an increasingly important business objective for manufacturers of commercial vehicles, manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive aftermarket and service providers in the logistics and materials handling sectors.

A further new feature sees REIFEN, a tyre show under licence from Messe Essen, as a new division of Automechanika Johannesburg. The co-located Trade Shows deliver optimisation of synergies to the benefit of exhibitors and trade visitors alike.

Franchise and agency opportunities at the Shows mean business opportunities.

New technology from leading manufacturers and suppliers will be showcased.

The industry focus point which is Automechanika Johannesburg/REIFEN, Futuroad Expo and Scalex Johannesburg is the sub-Saharan African window to the world for the automotive aftermarket, an indispensable tool to stay abreast of new technology, cost-effective ways of doing business and scanning new horizons.

The all-encompassing business spectrum of the co-located Shows are illustrated by the participation of leading Industry Associations , which includes conferences and events hosted by leading trade associations such as the Retail Motor Industry Organisation, Motor Industry Staff Association, Collision Repairers Association, SA Motor Body Repairers Association, Motor Industry Workshop Association, Road Freight Association, SA Bus Operators Association, Fuel Retailers’ Association, Tyre Dealers and Fitment Association, Engine Remanufacturers Association and the Autobarn Group

The Automechanika Innovation Awards Competition will bring to the fore new and innovative products and services that are pioneering, innovative and fresh.

Exhibitors relish the opportunity to showcase, demonstrate and promote what they have on offer and trade visitors rejoice in the fact that this business only event with free online visitor registration provides them with a once-in-two-years opportunity to take stock of their businesses, appraise themselves of new developments and trends, new products and services and the opportunity to make investments to increase their own business efficiencies and profitability.

Whether you are an exhibitor with a great value proposition to offer or a trade visitor with passion for business and improving market share and profitability, Automechanika Johannesburg, Futuorad Expo and Scalex Johannesburg are where you must be!
