Count down to the Rand Show 2024 has begun

It’s that time of the year! The Rand Show, South Africa’s ultimate consumer lifestyle exhibition, promises its best show yet with exhibitions, entertainment, events, competitions, expos, games, rides, carnivals, and more. Following the epic success of 2023, where more than 80 000 attendees had the time of their lives, this year The Rand Show is doubling down on all the family fun!

Hosted at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec, between March 28 and April 1, 2024, the theme for this year is ‘bringing families together and bringing together South Africans from all walks of life’. The family concept emphasises the inclusivity of the show and represents the spirit of the Rainbow Nation. At The Rand Show, there is no exclusion, as the exhibitors, activations, and show theme offer a cross-cultural experience to be enjoyed by all.

For the daredevils out there, the Adrenaline Zone is bound to get your heart pumping with the action as you experience the thrill of drifting, 4×4 adventures, and the much-sought-after helicopter rides (flips included). Other outdoor activities include go-karting and old-school carnival games and rides.

The Rand Show also brings virtual reality to the fore with the Meta Zone, a mixed-reality event that blends the physical and virtual worlds. Be prepared to push the boundaries of imagination and technology. 

The Craft Area is the perfect place for those who love a good beverage, where you can enjoy the deliciousness of locally crafted drinks from distilleries, breweries, and wine farms around SA. Some of SA’s best local talent will accompany the Craft Area, performing original and cover songs of your favourite hits. 

Other exciting events include: At the Rand Show SMME Summit on March 27th, the attendees are a balanced mix of exhibitors that will amaze you with make-up, fashion, and plenty of shopping in the Shopping Hall. Prepare yourself for a massive range of products and innovations. 

“Throughout our history, The Rand Show has always helped to launch, support, and grow business for South Africans in the SMME space,” says Adele Hartdegen, CEO of the Rand Show. “This year, our dedicated focus is on showcasing SMME success stories at our summit.”

The purpose of The Rand Show SMME Summit is to directly link SMMEs with corporate and public sector representatives that play a role in the SMME sector in terms of funding, training, and access to markets. The Rand Show will also be introducing a pitching forum for youth entrepreneurs with a prize of R10,000 for the development of their businesses.
