Posted on 1 February 2019

The 2018 Joburg Getaway Show has received the award for the Best Consumer Exhibition (under 6,000 square meters ) in South Africa, beating a host of other exhibitions at the AAXO Roar Awards.

The awards were presented to the winners at a celebratory gala dinner at Montecasino on Thursday 31 January. It was the third annual awards ceremony held by the Association of African Exhibition Organisers’ (AAXO).

‘The Roar Awards are well respected in South Africa, and AAXO is Africa’s leader in the professional exhibitions business. Receiving the Roar Award for Best Consumer Exhibition is a huge honour for The Getaway Show, and a confirmation that our event stands out in the marketplace. This show, our leadership team, and Ramsay Media, is delighted with the results. We look forward to the next time we can produce our award winning event, in Joburg, in October 2019,’ said Kevin Ferguson, CEO, Highbury Media and Ramsay Media.


The entries were judged on their successful exhibition strategy incorporating marketing, public relations, operations, and activation.

Stephan Herman, commercial director of Ramsay Media, said, ‘On behalf of the Getaway Show team we would like to thank AAXO, our partners, suppliers and valued sponsors and exhibitors and visitors for contributing to making this one of the best Getaway Shows to date. We will work tirelessly to bring you an even better experience in 2019.’
