EXPO 2013

Zimbabwe’s Ultimate Marketing Promotions & Events Trade Exhibitions

14-15 March 2013


Introduction A warm welcome to all our MASXPO Exhibitors for the 2013. Compliments of the new season. Marketers Suppliers Expo is a new event coming to Zimbabwe for the first time. The main objective of this event is to provide a platform for the creation of synergies between Marketing Buyers and Marketing Suppliers. This is the first and unique exhibition targeted to all relevant suppliers for your promotional campaign. You are advised to read carefully and actively participate in these activities to build your brand exposure. It all begins with meeting the customers. Maximising your company's presence at this event will help improve your market visibility. Your contribution is vital for this to be a successful annual event.

Background Due to the current economic situation, most companies are relying on foreign suppliers for their office consumables. Some companies have even lost thousands of dollars in the process, through fraudulent suppliers. Having identified the dire need for bridging the gap between the marketers and the marketing consumables suppliers, MAZ established the Marketers Suppliers Expo to bring the suppliers to the Marketers. Such events are being hosted in several African countries, including South Africa. They have proved to be a success and the Association through established networks believes this event will be a success. The Marketers Suppliers Expo will be an annual two day event. If need arises this can be extended to three days.

Concept Process

Given the interest from several marketing suppliers to exhibit in our events, this event aims at holding an exhibition where marketing suppliers get a chance to exhibit their products and services in one house, thereby getting to meet with our
