This year Durban Decorex focuses on ‘Great Ideas’, which mean everyone who visits, goes home armed with practical information and designs that will change their lifestyle. Look out for exhibitors promoting useful tips and ideas, plus products and services that are new and innovative. They’ve added ‘Great Idea’ signage to show the way throughout the expo to this inspiration. On Friday 20th March, there will also be a pop up night market set up by Upmarket Umhlanga which will trade from 3pm to 9pm and promises great market buys and affordable arts and craft that won’t be available for the rest of the weekend. Decorex exhibitors will also be offering shopper discounts and bargains that are available on Friday 20th only. On both Thursday and Friday, the first 5000 visitors to Decorex Durban will receive a goodie bag valued at more than R150 plus there are prizes valued at more than R20 000 to be won. Look out for entry forms and more information in the Daily News in the week leading up to the show as well as in the Visitor Show Guide.
