More than 30 000 people visited the show last year. “There is a big emphasis on the cattle, equestrian and small livestock elements of The Spring Show. It is, after all, an agricultural event. But this year we are expanding the commercial side of the show to include exhibitors who offer goods and services to this sector. There will also be a huge fashion exhibition and sales hall so we are really looking at catering to everyone’s needs,” said Robert Walker, event organiser of CE Projects.

This year the Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (GDARD) will again host The Spring Show.

The Spring Show returned to its format of an agricultural show and expo last year and the new-look has proven popular with visitors. The Spring Show is the premier agricultural show for the northern regions of South Africa.

At last year’s event Gauteng MEC for Agriculture and Rural Development, Nandi Mayathula-Khoza, reiterated the value of The Spring Show to the agricultural community.

“…the Expo seeks to create an additional platform for agriculture industry stakeholders across the value chain in Gauteng to interact successfully with the farming clientele within and outside the province,” she said.

The MEC will officially open The Spring Show on 28 August at the GDARD pavilion at the Tshwane Events Centre.

“GDARD is an important partner in The Spring Show. Their involvement in this event is crucial to its success because it ensures that role players from across the board are involved and able to interact with each other.” said event organiser Robert Walker of CE Projects.

In addition to hosting The Spring Show, GDARD will also present several workshops during the five day event.
