    SAEC Reopening Guidelines

    The SA Events Council (SAEC) is an entity that represents 13 of the major Exhibition and Event Associations within the broader Events Industry of South Africa, a unified voice that speaks on behalf of the Exhibition and Events Industry, in all interactions with the various government departments and bodies for whom the hosting of Exhibitions and Events is an area of focus.

    As representatives of the Exhibitions and Events Industry sector in South Africa, SAEC believes that a consistent, Industry-wide approach to Exhibition and Event management is the only practical means for us to re-open Exhibitions and Events safely, with a focus on a phased approach that will be acceptable to both the government and the various local authorities currently governing Exhibitions and Events across South Africa.

    Scan Display built the largest COVID-19 hospital in Africa

    Scan Display designed and built Africa’s largest dedicated Covid-19 temporary hospital at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in Cape Town, South Africa.

    The South African exhibition, events and display company, was commissioned by the Western Cape Department of Health to transform four exhibition halls into four separate recovery wards for the temporary hospital.

    Scan Display has worked closely with the CTICC for many years, with the company’s Cape Town branch building exhibition infrastructure and stands for shows like Mining Indaba, Design Indaba Expo, Investec Cape Town Art Fair and Africa Oil Week.
