Meetings Africa proudly unveils the diverse lineup of 20 vendors set to showcase their unique and sustainable products at the 2024 edition of the trade show. The Sustainability Village offers delegates, from across the world an immersive experience, fostering support for local artisans. The products at the sustainability village are eco-friendly – an innovative departure from conventional conference gifts.

GM: MIC Sales at SA National Convention Bureau, Bjorn Hufkie expressed, “The Sustainability Village is an iconic feature of Meetings Africa, and this year, will feature 20 proudly South African vendors. Through the products at the sustainability village, we not only promote these businesses and contribute to our country’s economy, but we also invite guests to select a piece of South Africa to take back home with them. It is all part of ensuring that we tell an authentic South African story. It’s an integral part of what makes South African events truly stand out. We can’t imagine a Meetings Africa without this delightful marketplace in a conference setting.”

Hufkie highlighted, “The village serves as a lively marketplace showcasing the craftsmanship and entrepreneurship of local talents. Initiatives like the Sustainability Village extend market access for artisans, creating a lasting impact beyond the three days of the Meetings Africa show.”
