Gearhouse Group was once again present on the floor of the largest “Business Tourism marketing platform” in South Africa in 2016. Meetings Africa took place on 23 and 24th February at the Sandton Convention Centre. “ This exhibition is always a great opportunity for the Gearhouse Group to connect with the International Hosted Buyers and Local Corporates as well as many of our clients who are also participants. As INHOUSE Venue Technical Management, one of the Gearhouse Group companies, caters specifically for corporate events within venues; Meetings Africa is a good platform to connect with the venues that we are already servicing as well” says the Group’s, Marketing Manager, Robyn D’Alessandro.
This event focuses us on the Corporate and Associations Business events market; “ As a multi-disciplined service provider, we work across many different sectors but these clients are unique in that they are planning their events so far out. Suppliers are generally engaged only at the end of the line, but this exhibition facilitates an early client/supplier interface and we get the opportunity to give technical input from the outset, which can positively impact both the outcome and the budgets.
Whilst most of the Association/Meetings Planners know exactly what they want to achieve; it’s up to us to advise them on the latest technical capabilities to help them achieve their outcomes in the most efficient and economical way.
As always, this was a productive exhibition for us and we look forward to servicing these events as they come to our shores”.
