The fair will be held at the Durban ICC and Exhibition Centre from September 22-29, and provides a platform for entrepreneurs to showcase products, network, learn and grow their businesses.
Mayor Zandile Gumede said the city’s efforts to support small businesses were paying dividends.
“The swift response displayed by businesses is remarkable, it shows the confidence they have in the fair, and the opportunities it gives them for brand visibility and to access markets. We want these businesses clinching big deals to rake in more profits,” she said.
