WORDS Gina Dionisio

This year’s HOMEMAKERS Fair, taking place at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit and International Convention Centre from 1 to 3 March 2024, will nurture your passion for renovating, decorating and creative expression.

In celebration of their 30th anniversary, this year’s event will feature exciting exhibitors and vendors, promising a more spectacular experience than ever before.

With an impressive lineup of over 300 exhibitors, the event will showcase a vast array of home and home improvement treasures. From essential building materials to awe-inspiring soft furnishings, there will be something for everyone under one roof.

“We are absolutely thrilled to mark our 30th anniversary. Over the years, we’ve explored various categories, but we’ve consistently found our true passion and core strength in the Home Improvement (HIP) industry. Delivering the best in home improvement is our forte,” says Hestelle Robinson, CEO of HOMEMAKERS.

Homemakers Fair 2024: What to Expect

This year exhibitors have been carefully grouped into distinct halls:

  • On Level 3, Hall A becomes the Experiential Pavilion, offering products that engage all your senses, from touch and feel to smell and taste. The Eatery is in this hall, a culinary journey for visitors who can taste the best artisanal foods, ranging from condiments to wines, to take home. Due to its overwhelming popularity, this level also hosts the tuis | home theatre, where the spotlight is on creating delectable air-fryer meals. Visitors not only gather inspiration here but also have the unique opportunity to actively participate and gain valuable practical experience.
  • Transitioning to Level 2, Hall B is dedicated to soft furnishings and interior decor exhibitors. On this level, visitors will also find Hall C, which serves as a home for both large custom-built stands and smaller bespoke products.
  • On the ground floor, Hall D stands at the core of the show, featuring experts in the latest home improvement and renovation trends. 
  • Food enthusiasts will find their paradise at the Gourmet Circle, where a scrumptious array of festival food and food trucks beckon. This area will be abuzz with live music and offer comfortable seating.
  • Another source of inspiration can be found at the Ask the Experts Arena on the Viewing Deck. This is a rare and one-of-a-kind opportunity for visitors to gain free advice from industry experts. Visitors are encouraged to bring their home improvement concerns and questions to a panel of specialists who will provide free consultations and advice.

The Ask the Experts Arena on the Viewing Deck will also focus on sustainability. “Sustainable living plays a significant role in the daily lives of South Africans, particularly in the face of power and water shortages. In this key feature area, we’ll highlight solutions, exchange ideas, and provide inspiration for more responsible and eco-friendly living,” Hestelle explains.

“We see ourselves as a platform where industry suppliers and homeowners come together to form meaningful connections. Allowing contractors into your home for any transformation, renovation, or improvement requires trust, and if you find these contractors at our event, it establishes an excellent foundation for building that trust,” she concludes.
