Techno fun at the Durban Business Fair
​The Durban Business Fair which will be held between 25 and
29 September will this year focus on technology.
IF LEARNING how to create and use robots, how to code and play with new technology are some of your interests, then you better head over to the Durban Business Fair, between 25 and 29 September.

Technology is one of the main themes at this year’s 21st annual Fair to be held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre. The Fair is one of the premier events organised by eThekwini Municipality, aimed at providing a platform for local businesses to showcase their goods and services, encourage networking and hosting discussions related to the industry.

Phillip Sithole, Deputy City Manager for Economic Development and Planning said: “The techno zone
will be highly interactive as it will showcase new technologies and introduce people to new thinking and concepts.” Hosted by Innovate Durban, the techno zone will feature virtual reality and 3D printing as some of the latest technologies on show. Sithole said technology plays a key role in shaping businesses, adding that panel discussions will focus on the impact of technology on businesses stemming from the fourth industrial revolution.

As part of stimulating youth led businesses, eThekwini Municipality’s Business Support, Tourism and Markets Unit in partnership with Innovate Durban will be hosting the “Youth Connect Business Competition” at the Fair. Aimed at youth innovators, entrepreneurs and startups, participants must
represent businesses that are at least two years or older, within eThekwini and must demonstrate innovation in the product or service.

Hand delivered applications can be sent to 7th floor Embassy Building, 199 Anton Lembede Street, Durban, for attention: Innovation Business Competition. The closing date for applications is 13 September 2019 at 12pm.
