The International Sourcing Fair in Johannesburg, South Africa is your ticket to accessing the latest global innovations and product ranges in the home, gift, office and hospitality sectors. The fair – the first of its kind in Africa – brings an expansive array of international designs to the continent for a trade-only expo aimed at retailers and commercial suppliers.

ISF will be held 7 – 9 August 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg. Here, international suppliers and manufacturers will connect with distributors and retailers from across Africa, under one roof, conveniently located closer to home.

It’s a sign of the continent’s growing stature that manufacturers from Asia, Europe, and North and South America have woken up to its consumer power. The time is now – as an increasingly sophisticated and more globally connected middle class demands a wider product choice.

The International Sourcing Fair is brought to you by Reed Exhibitions, Africa’s leading exhibitions network. Its depth of on-the-ground experience combined with access to a global sales network uniquely qualifies it to produce world-class expos geared to an African market. It has a prominent portfolio of award-winning shows that bring great synergy to ISF, including Decorex SA, 100% Design South Africa, World Travel Market and so much more.
