Hi

Yes this Expo will be held in Pretoria on the 9th and 10th of August this year.

We have some good exhibitors on board as well as some talks and presentations including a talk on Komodo Dragons by the curator from the Pretoria Zoo.

Will be a great show and the last expo in Gauteng this year ( as far as we know)

You can send me an email for further info:

Err..... not to cause commotion or anything, but i was saw this add the other day and mentioned it to some of my staff that stays in Pretoria, and they advised me to rather skip it as it is in a dodgy part of town. I was rather keen to check it out till then, can someone with more info please put my mind at ease.... is Eastlyn really the kinda place that you might find your "car on bricks" when you come out of the show or is this over the top?

Apologies this is what is was advised so no offence is intended.

Hi

Safety concerns are par for the course when organizing any event in South Africa

The venue is at a community hall and is very safe.

It will not be the last expo for 2013 in Gauteng. Just watch this space.

Izzy it does have a wire fence around the hall.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
