EGF Master Class

As part of this Networking Session, the EGF will host a Master Class Insight Session on why climate change is a unique opportunity to build a better world, presented by Deon Robbertze of the Change Agent Collective. This will be followed by a quick overview of the EGF’s new Supplier Database.
Deon has over 25 years of experience in the marketing and communications industry. Nine years ago, he had a shift in consciousness and started focusing on sustainability and how communication could drive critical awareness, inspiration and action. In 2009 he launched OgilvyEarth for Ogilvy in Africa, and in 2011 he launched a collaborative sustainability communications platform called Sustain our Africa (SoA) – which hosted Africa’s first full circle sustainability summit focused on inspiration and tools for change in 2012. SoA brought together over 100 sustainability experts and 800 delegates over 3 days. In 2012 Deon co-founded The Change Agent Collective, a specialist sustainability and behavior change communications Agency. Deon has co-published two books: The Conscious Brand (now a set work book at the Cape Town University of Technology) and the Change Agent.



AAXO, EXSA and SA Tourism Strategic Engagement

SA Tourism, through the National Convention Bureau (NCB), has identified exhibitions as a key driver for both economic and tourism development. This strategic focus will become an enabler in this sector to assist with both funding and international market access to exhibition organisers.
To this end, SA Tourism invites all members to an initial engagement on the plans to support the growth of this important sector. This growth will aid in securing new exhibitions to SA which will positively impact, not only the tourism arrivals, but more importantly the local GDP.
