The Rand Show Just Got A Whole Lot More Exciting!

As the countdown begins for one of the country’s most iconic and family-oriented events of the year, the organisers have announced the introduction of a Gaming Entertainment Pavilion at the 2019 Rand Show! The Gaming Entertainment Pavilion will be hosted alongside numerous new lifestyle, retail and entertainment offerings, and promises a massively fun family day – or days – out.

The additions to this year’s 125th anniversary celebration edition have been designed to appeal to a generation of visitors that may never have experienced the show in all its glory.

A Fortnite Gaming Tournament with over R100 000 prize pool and other prizes is must! If you're keen in showing off your skills, register online on 25 February 2019.
