Afrocet Montgomery is a joint venture between Montgomery and a deep-rooted African exhibition organiser in Afrocet. It has a long history of running events throughout Africa and has worked in the past with a number of global exhibition companies as a local partner. Afrocet’s understanding of the market in West Africa made for the perfect partnership with Montgomery to take on, develop and build on their exhibitions in the region and look at expanding the portfolio in line with the ever changing markets in the region.
Angus Montgomery Pty Ltd is the holding company for our South African exhibition businesses, namely Specialised Exhibitions and Montgomery Africa.
Dogan Trading is an exhibition and events company jointly owned by the Johannesburg Exhibition Centre (of which Montgomery are the main shareholder) and South African Show Services. This company organises a number of events in South Africa such as Automechanika South Africa, the Rand Easter Show and The Johannesburg Motor Show.
In 2004, Montgomery Worldwide acquired the The Johannesburg Exhibition Centre (JEC). This is the largest multi-purpose venue with dedicated exhibition facilities in Africa. The JEC can offer over 42,000 square meters of covered space, and an additional 80,000 square meters of outdoor, multi-purpose space – all of which is accessible from multiple entrances.
All infrastructural requirements are also provided, such as banking facilities, telecommunication services, five star in house catering facilities, and ample and secure parking for up to 20,000 vehicles.
In June 2012 a joint venture between Montgomery and leading Kenyan based organisers, Event & Conference Organisers Ltd, was signed with a view to running a variety of international exhibitions in Kenya and the surrounding East African region. Combining with ECO's twenty years of experience in the region, the first show, HOSTEX East Africa 2013, will be running to address the hospitality and food service sector.
Specialised Exhibitions (Pty) Ltd was established in 1967 and is the largest trade show organiser in South Africa. It is 100% owned by Montgomery, and runs some of the biggest shows in Africa. Its portfolio includes Electra Mining Africa, Propak Africa and Interbuild Africa.
