Over the past 3 years, Lidi Ada took part in local and International Trade fairs as part of the ( CBI ) Netherlands support program for South African manufacturing companies to export into Europe. We attended Ambiente in Frankfurt, each year in February. Last year we also took a brave step and took part in New York Now’s Summer Show in August. We had to do this on our own and received an overwhelming support from USA visitors to the show. Unfortunately this year we could not afford to repeat this wonderful experience but hope to do so again next year. In South Africa we have been exhibiting at Sarcda Christmas for the past three years.
SARCDA XMAS 2017
This year we focussed on decorations for events and in particulour the coming Christmas season. Our shops in South Africa are over loaded with imported goods, representing Christmas with cold and snow. Mass-production with no personal touch. Here in South Africa we enjoy Christmas season each year with lovely warm weather, beach holidays, summer clothing and braaivleis! I feel there is a need for South African Christmas tree decorations and gifts with a universal approach. It has to offer you a touch of our own tradition, it needs to unify colour, it should be able to create a timeless feeling, has to smell like sunshine and leaves you with the humble appreciation of a true South African Christmas experience.
And if you are abroad, it is high time you add a little or a lot of South African sunshine to your Christmas decorations!
Have a Blessed 2017 Christmas Season xx
