Durban Business Fair
The Durban Business Fair is the premier and comprehensive business exhibition proudly hosted by eThekwini Municipality.
The success of the Fair has resulted in its extension to the townships, rural areas, and secondary central business district. The Fair is one of various innovative programmes hosted by the City’s Business Support, Tourism and Markets Unit to ensure that SMMEs remain an active part of the City’s economy.
