    2013 EXSA INDUSTRY AWARDS - the 'Oscars' of the industry!

    The EXSA Industry Awards took place on the 21st of November at JHB Expo Centre, and did the exhibition industry come out in style! The theme of the evening was ‘All that Glitters is Gold’, and the industry players most certainly had a sparkle about themselves.   Glitz and Glam was the name of the game!

    Sincere thanks go to all of our sponsors, including: JHB Expo Centre for hosting the event, Gearhouse South Africa for the AV and Lighting; as well as SSQ Exhibitions, Barmotion and Sandton Convention Centre.

    Nigel Walker, the EXSA Chairman, opened the evening.  He gave out his Chairman’s award to Pippa Naude, for being the unsung hero who tirelessly promotes not only the exhibition industry but also greening in the industry through the Event Greening Forum.   And two industry stalwarts were inducted into the EXSA Hall of Fame:  Jo Melville and Justin Hawes.

    The Best Stand Awards were presented first.  Each stand had initially been judged by three judges who went on site to the various exhibitions around the country.  Stands which received 70% or over then went through to the finals where a panel of 14 industry experts got together for the final judging process which took place on 13 November.

    Exhibitions had to achieve a minimum of 75% to be considered a finalist for the awards. Certain exhibition finalists were so close to each other that a Certificate of Excellence was awarded to the runners-up.

    Finally the industry’s favourites as judged by their peers were recognised for their outstanding service.

    Thank you to all who attended the Awards, and who helped to pull off the wonderful evening.
