Judges were overwhelmed by the sophisticated designs of this year’s Decorex Cape Town exhibitor stands. 

After long consultation, judges awarded the ‘Best Overall Stand’ to Caesarstone at this year’s Decorex Cape Town Exhibitor Stands Awards.

“There were some incredibly innovative designs at this year’s Decorex Cape Town but the Caesarstone stand certainly stood out as a favourite for the judges,” said Anita Bloom, creative director of Decorex SA. “It was minimalistic and beautiful, incorporating an exceptional use of shape, form, texture, lighting and quality with and a well-informed, receptive staff.”

These annual awards, hosted on the first evening of Decorex Cape Town, reward the most dynamic exhibitors for their ingenuity in stand design. This year the awards welcomed an exclusive panel of judges tasked with selecting the top exhibitors in 14 awards’ categories. 

The judging panel included Michael Chandler of Chandler House; Petra Vonk of Petra Vonk Design; Bianca Resnekov, Cape Talk Style & Design correspondent; and Dave Nemeth of Trend Forward.

“Exhibition stand design is a real art and it is always so refreshing to see the latest decor and design products and trends showcased in such a dynamic manner,” said Sian Cullingworth, portfolio director at Reed Exhibitions. “There was a real response to this year’s exhibition theme - ‘Designing for Africa - feels like home’ – and I think visitors to Decorex Cape Town will get a genuine feel for the trends and styles emanating from this beautiful continent.”
