Decorex Joburg in Sandton: 10 Reasons to See This Year’s Showcase


Joburg’s hottest decor and design showcase, Decorex Joburg, is back at the Sandton Convention Centre from 1 to 4 August 2024. This event in Johannesburg is running alongside 100% Design Africa, the definitive showcase of all things contemporary design on the African continent. Joburgers will be able to take in both shows, plus daily live talks and demonstrations, for the price of one entry ticket.

Here’s what you can look forward to:

Decorex Joburg

100% Design Africa

This curated product showcase includes a stylish café created by Wolkberg Casting Studios and a new set of Future Talks in the Future of Design area. There’s also a dedicated display by Designer of the Year, Tristan du Plessis, the beautifully done 100% Hospitality by Belgotex X Hesse Kleinloog activation and a host of new product launches by local stars such as Joe Paine.

You must see That Food Guy® Café

Built on the vision of providing authentic fresh bites and coffees made with nothing but the best local ingredients, a first-of-its-kind, proudly South African, That Food Guy® Café experience will pop up on Level 0. This activation showcases a menu that highlights key food heritage moments through the tagline of ‘Heritage Reimagined’. 

‘To know where we’re going, we have to know where we’ve come from, and this year’s Decorex theme, Designing for Impact, will mean That Food Guy® Café will feature an aesthetic that gives shine to the past, while also showcasing a fresh, modern take on some of our country’s heritage food items’ says Dale Herbst of That Food Guy Group.

Think jaffles stuffed with much-loved local flavours like curried mince and butter chicken, fresh salads, mouth-watering sweets like mini milk tarts and jelly and custard, and the most delicious coffees – with rusks of course.
