Johannesburg, April 11 (People's Daily Online) — If you could only explore the grand Rand Show within one hour, and you had to pick a particular spot among hundreds of attractions, what would it be? Well, Craig Newman, CEO of the Expo Centre, Nasrec, is caught up in this quiz by People’s Daily Online this morning. “Tough question. But I would favor the Chiefs Theatre. When food and wine go together, that would be my personal favorite.”

The 2015 Rand Show runs from 3 April to 12 April, at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, South Africa.

Escape the ordinary

Being one of the largest consumer exhibitions universally, this year’s Rand Show is once again packed with entertainment, exhibitions, demonstrations and lots of fun activities for all walks of life.

"The Rand Show has a proud 120-year history of providing top quality entertainment and activities for its visitors," says Craig Newman. "It gives everyone an opportunity to escape the ordinary, and has something for every member of the family to enjoy."

Keep up the trend

The 2015 Rand Show features SANDF and Pirates Paradise, a giant play land imported from Italy with attractions never before seen in South Africa.

"Every single year we keep up the trend, trying to keep the Show as relevant as possible. We want to make sure that families can come and spend the whole day out here at the Show." 

Enable business opportunities

There are seven themed exhibition halls with exhibitors showing off ideas, products and services, from family lifestyle and the home environment, to wellness, hobbies, sports, science and technology and action, all in one massive exhibition. 

“Plus there are many open air lifestyle and adventure exhibits around the halls,” adds Newman, “The Show enables real business opportunities for everyone.” This year, hundreds of exhibitors display themselves at the Show, about 35 of which come all the way from China.
