E’xpo – Edenvale’s Trade & Leisure Show






Following the success of the ECID Festival Lights & Street Carnival, the need for a further platform for businesses in Edenvale and surrounds to showcase their products to the community as well as network with each other was noted. The E’xpo has been launched to fill the gap.

A mixture of business, skills exchange and fun make this a unique event with lots to do and see over the two days – 31 May and 1 June. The Great Guide and ECID have partnered to ensure maximum exposure, not only for the event but also for the exhibitors involved.

There are a variety of package options for exhibitors to choose from, please see the links to application form for more details on this.

The following is an overview of some of what has been arranged so far:

A showcase of products and services from businesses, entrepreneurs and others including categories such as Gardens and Homes, Motoring, Business Services, Education, kids activities (all day) and more.

Besides an art exhibition with arts and crafts provided from schools in the area, we will also have talks and demos* for people to attend FREE of charge.

Young entrepreneurs are encouraged to participate by taking a discounted stall in the youth area. A prize for the best stall is being donated by Smart Teens.
