    Morning Gretchen, Thanks to all, absolute blast. Gretchie, thank you for a well organised expo, introducing all exhibitors to the right contacts in Pemba. It was a very professional and fruitful trip. Hope to see you all in Ghana. Regards Chris Swart Business Development Manager Pipes & Fittings



    Thank you so much Gretchen. With this being our first show in Africa, we were truly blown away with the professionalism and preciseness with which you conduct the shows. So many people know you, your kindness but firmness is admired and appreciated by all your show-goers as well as your business relationships. This allowed us to just easily expand on fortifying these relationships that you have built up over the years. Mozambique is sure to have the SKEmet name floating around in conversation now, and that is what we set out to do! Thank you for making the very rare chances, possible and achievable! Onwards to Namibia…. Samantha SKEmet

    Hi Gretchen Hope you are well. Doing the show with our agent in Tarkwa last year was fantastic and I must admit last year’s show brought some good business for us. It is small and intimate – but powerful and professional and attendance just what companies need. It was very professional and the high quality of attendees was exceptional!!!! Thanks again Best Regards David-Serge Marvel

    Hi Gretchen, I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for last week’s roadshow to Pemba. The venue was perfect, there was a good mix of complementary companies exhibiting and the potential clients that visited were all of good quality. I made a healthy selection of new contacts in Pemba and I am certain that they will be extremely useful as construction starts on the O&G project in 2024. I cannot believe that I have not booked shows with you before, I can kick myself for it!!!! Thanks once again and I look forward to joining you in Namibia at the end of November and more shows in 2024. Kind regards Tony

Even though I only met most of the team on this trip, I feels like I have known you all for many years already. Thank you for all your efforts and flawless arrangements aunty Gretch. I don’t think we fully comprehend all the effort that goes in behind the seen to ensure a smooth and fruitful trip. The quality of attendees is of the best! With your shows it is not about masses, but good quality. I have been doing road shows in Africa with you for the last 14 years and do not regret joining your professional and valuable shows, in fact it is now the majority of my business.
