  • Armin Hahnewald: Exhibitions Manager, HOMEBRANDS
    HOMEBRANDS has exhibited at the Royal Agricultural Show Pietermaritzburg for well over ten years with various stands and products at each expo and every time, through inventive and original programming, the Show offers a valuable platform to promote and market our new products, and engage with a captive audience in KZN for continuous and new business year after year. We thoroughly enjoy the friendly and relaxed atmosphere at the Showgrounds, which brings in plenty of customers each year, and as much as the whole team is exhausted after ten days, we always look forward to returning the following year to yet another successful Royal Show!

  • Brian Bennett: Regional Manager, MASCOR
    We at MASCOR certainly enjoyed being at The Royal Show and a good amount of business was created and captured there. We could hardly believe that it passed so quickly. A big vote of thanks to you and your team, especially Lara, the Exhibitions Manager, who made it a great success for us. We certainly benefited by the move kindly offered to us and we hope to keep the new stand for future Shows.

We have been going to the Royal show for over 10 years and every year each family member has their own highlights, That's why I love the Royal Show, there is something for everyone, young and old!!The food stalls, the craft stalls and all the exhibits are so exciting and creative every year.
