How to become a SARCDA Trade Buyer

SARCDA is strictly a trade show


As SARCDA Exhibitions are strictly trade shows, all Buyers need to register and submit their company documents for verification.
The verification may take up to 5 days. This is a once-off process.

 All buyers are required to register and make payment (R 220.00) online. No registrations or payments accepted at the exhibition.

What are the registration procedures and cost of becoming a SARCDA Buyer?

  • Trade buyers should apply to register online via the SARCDA website.
  • Have digital copies or your company documents (VAT or company registration document) on hand as one of these has to be uploaded for verification
  • Once you have applied and submitted your company documents, the SARCDA team will verify your documents within 5 working days. If your application is successful, you will receive an email confirming that you are a verified trade buyer, and with info on how to log into your Buyer Profile to make your non-refundable payment of  R220.00
  • On receipt of payment, a confirmation document with a QR Code will be emailed to you. Print out the QR Code and bring it to the exhibition.
  • No members of the public will be allowed access to the expo. Only registered, verified trade buyers will be granted access at the door.
  • No cash/cards will be accepted onsite for registrations. Online system only.

Who may register as a SARCDA Buyer?

Any individual retail buyer working in the retail Gift, Fashion, Toy Décor & Design industries can register as a SARCDA Buyer provided that he/she can supply their company VAT document and/or Company registration document for verification.

I have already registered but need to add new staff members who want to attend the show. What should I do?

  • Registration is per Buyer and not per Company. Each new buyer must register online, and pay a once off non-refundable registration fee of  R220.00
  • Registration is subject to approval.

My company is very small and I am not VAT registered. How do I gain access to the show?

You will need some proof that you work, or are the owner of, a bona fide company. A company registration document, a letter from your accountant, a bank statement in the company name or some proof will be required.
