First Editions at Design Indaba Expo 2014

Design pilgrims and buyers from across the globe flock to Design Indaba Expo annually to get a taste of the best design products and creative services from South Africa and the continent. 

The Expo handpicks industry experts and leaders in their relevant fields to help us select and source innovative exhibitors from across Africa. Our curation is one of the hallmarks of our show, setting us apart from our competitiors. It is also central to Design Indaba’s desire to see Africa’s design industry moving forward and gaining further international exposure.

“The diversity and wealth of knowledge that this year’s curators bring to the event will ensure that Design Indaba once again cements its status as the largest and most exciting design event in South Africa and on the continent,” says Kim Seeliger, Design Indaba Expo Manager.
