Local exhibition industry awards

We were delighted to receive four awards at the 2017 exhibition industry awards evening, held in February this year. The evening was co-hosted by the Association of African Exhibition Organisers (AAXO) and the Exhibition and Events Association of Southern Africa (EXSA).

Scan Display’s MD, Justin Hawes, admits that being a stand builder in the exhibition industry is challenging: tight deadlines and limited budgets constantly need to be balanced with exacting standards in a hugely competitive market. This is why, when a year’s hard work culminates in the industry awards evening, he says it is such a privilege to be acknowledged with an award.

We won the following awards for projects completed in 2017:

  • AAXO’s ROAR Award for Distinction in Exhibiting for the Scan Display stand at Madex;
  • EXSA’s EXSA-llence Award for Best Green Stand Award for South African Tourism’s Sustainability Village at Meetings Africa;
  • EXSA’s EXSA-llence Award for Best Stand in the 51-100 m² category for the Dr Reddy’s stand at the World Psychiatry Association International Congress;
  • EXSA’s EXSA-llence Award for Best Stand in the 51-100 m² category for the SANParks stand at Tourism Indaba.

“We were delighted with these results, which reflect the talent and dedication of our team,” says Justin. “The competition was incredibly stiff this year – especially in the Green Awards category where there was an increase in the number of entries. This makes these achievements even more meaningful.”
