Africa's food, drink & hospitality trade expo

Hostex returns in 2020 with a 34-year track record of servicing Southern Africa’s dynamic food, drink and hospitality industries. Over 6,000 professional visitors attended Hostex 2018, including 89% from South Africa and 11% international visitors, offering exciting, expansive opportunities for U.S. food exporters.

Why Exhibit at Hostex 2020?

  • With a population of almost 56 million people, 64.3% of which is urban, a growing middle class, and well-developed infrastructure, South Africa is one of the most advanced, diverse and attractive business destinations on the African continent. This makes it the perfect entry point to doing business in the Sub-Saharan African region.
  • In 2016, U.S. exports of agricultural products to South Africa increased by 55 percent, reaching US$ 321 million.
  • The region imported $14 billion in agricultural and related products in 2017, and the potential for U.S. export growth is strong, given that many of these are products that the United States produces competitively.
