MADEX – the Marketing, Advertising and Design Expo – will be held from Wednesday 06 to Thursday 07 June 2018, 9:00 to 17:00 daily, at the Sandton Convention Centre.

After its hugely successful launch last year, MADEX 2018 is expected to be a calendar highlight for professionals working in the marketing, advertising and design industries.

Possibly the biggest draw card for many are the free seminars that are given throughout the show. There will be two seminar theatres running concurrently:

  • The Fundamentals is the perfect place to jump start your marketing career, and get to grips with important marketing strategies such as social, email, direct and digital marketing.
  • The Marketing Academy takes topics a little deeper to help professionals hone their skills and further their understanding.

Over 20 sessions will run each day, from a host of expert speakers such as Mike Sharman (“Exceptional content: challenging the conventions of content marketing”), Desere Orrill (“The mobile innovators: how the current techno generation is reshaping the mobile game”), Dylan Kohlstadt (“Next Level Social Media: Social Media that Works”) and Amantle Mokubung (“From insights to a superb marketing mix: address unique marketing issues”).

You can view the full programme here.

Visitors will also be able to meet a range of exhibitors who provide various marketing products and services, from exhibition stand builders and display products, to graphic and laser printers, and various tech tools to aid marketers.

Skip the queues and register your attendance online here. Tickets cost R50, which will give you access to the show on both days.

MADEX is collocated with MARKEX, Africa’s premier promotional products expo. If you would like to also attend MARKEX, you need to register your interest here, as it is a trade-only show.
