The Control Roadshow is aimed primarily at the Industrial Instrumentation & Control
and Automation market place, providing a networking forum for suppliers and end users.
The show moves between industrial centres around South Africa on a routine basis
and beyond the borders on specific projects if commercially viable.
The format of the show is kept simple in that all stands are restricted to a 4 meter
by 2 meter area and the exhibitors are free to utilize this space as they choose
without interfering with other exhibitors.
While the goal is to always place each exhibitor against a backing wall or screen
surface, side screen walls on the stand space are not used in this format of exhibition.
The organisers provide all exhibitors at each stand with two trestle tables and two
chairs, table cloths and a single power socket : single-phase.
Visitor promotion to these exhibitions is carried out in various ways:
1. The shows are promoted via advertisements in the What’s New in Processing magazine.
2. An electronic invitation is compiled and circulated to exhibiting companies at
least one month before the event. They are encouraged to distribute the invitation
via their databases.
3. A bulk personalised email invitation is distributed to the organisers’ existing
4. Social media sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook are also utilised.
Prior to the event, visitors are encouraged to pre-register online. On the day of
the event, registrations are gathered at the door. This registration list is the
core value of the event and is controlled very carefully. To add value for the exhibitors,
the lists are circulated back to exhibiting companies only for the specific event
they participated in. These lists have and never will be sold on or rented for unsolicited
