On 1 June 2022, EXSA celebrated Global Exhibition Day with an afternoon/evening of fun and laughter. Venues, organisers, fellow associations, members, and industry colleagues came together in both Cape Town and Johannesburg simultaneously.

Each team had the same ingredients, which were to be used to make a caramel chocolate creation, with the exception of one added ingredient which differed among the teams. This was either chilli spice, paprika, BBQ, etc. The teams had to incorporate the spice into their desserts.
