Vaalnest Attends the 2015 SASDC Synergy Conference in Emperors Palace

Posted by Collen on Fri November 27, 2015 in Responsible Tourism & Environmental News.

The 2015 SASDC Synergy Conference and Business Opportunity Fair was held on the 23rd and 24th of November 2015, in Johannesburg. This unique national trade show attracted corporates and black business enterprises from around South Africa, all with the same goal…to expand their professional and business contacts.


The SASDC strives to bring its corporate members and certified suppliers together and this Conference and Business Opportunity Fair provides a forum to reach this goal. We have branded our annual conference and business opportunity fair “Synergy” because we believe that when businesses work together they produce results that are more fruitful than when working in isolation.

About the Conference

The Business Opportunity Fair is the largest national procurement event of its kind, and is attended by hundreds of key procurement executives and certified black businesses. More than 70 booths are available for exhibitors in all product and service areas. Vaalnest Boutique Hotel had its own stand booth where we showcased our luxurious hotel to the world to see and appreciate. What was appealing about the whole event is that buyers can acquaint themselves with the capabilities of the South African black businesses who are ready to provide products, services and solutions to major corporates, hospitals, universities and other buying organizations. The conference and fair allowed us as black business owners to cluster numerous sales calls with dozens of Fortune 500 companies and other buying institutions, making this an all-round experience not just for Vaalnest Boutique Hotel but for everyone who attended.

About the Exhibition

The exhibition is targeted at suppliers & members to build relationships whilst showcasing their products and services. Vaalnest exhibitors included our very own Events Coordinator Mrs Semina Mbali, Sales and Marketing Administrator Mrs Modiehi Pitso and the GM Mr Mathias Attwell who all had a huge platform to ultimately lay every card on the table, from our Responsible Tourism Policy to Business Profile we had shown people a glimpse of our luxurious offerings at Vaalnest Boutique Hotel. These stands gave us an advantage over other mediums as they are powerful tools for:

  • Bringing your customers and most active prospects to you.
  • Meeting pre-qualified prospects.
  • Allowing you to meet your market face-to-face
  • Allowing you to demonstrate products, answer questions and overcome objections.

Only Corporate Members, Government Departments & Global Link Partners may exhibit. Exhibiting at the SASDC Business Opportunity Fair is really the most cost-effective decision you will ever make for your business. Thank You to SASDC and Emperors Palace for this wonderful opportunity, this is truly the beginning of great things to come for many businesses at large.
