The tenth edition of one of South Africa's most highly anticipated home living exhibitions, Decorex Durban, will be celebrated in style next year as the expertly conceptualised event will feature a range of high end exhibitors, workshops and demonstrations characterised by home trends and products at the forefront of their respective industries. Between 21-25 March 2012, the Durban Exhibition Centre will be filled to the brim with a combination of the very best in décor, design and home living.

The event forms part of the Decorex SA portfolio, which will also see exhibitions held in Cape Town (26-29 April 2012) and Johannesburg (8-12 August 2012). Cairey Slater, Decorex Durban Exhibition Manager, said that "after over ten years in the local industry, the Decorex brand is well established and we are excited about growing the popularity of the exhibition even further! To do justice to the milestone of hosting our tenth Decorex Durban, we have opted for a refreshing fusion of popular elements from previous years alongside exciting new features, and have also placed an emphasis on the entertainment value for a great day out".

The range of offerings at Decorex Durban 2012 will be conveniently grouped and arranged in separate pavilions, including 'Design and Decorate', 'Eat', 'Build' and 'Plug In'. Amongst the many industries that will be represented at next year's much-anticipated event are appliances, art, building finishes, interior décor, food and wine, furniture, kitchens, bathrooms and accessories, to name but a few.
