About – Overview

Hobby-X was launched in South Africa in 1998 and is more popular than ever!

It attracts many thousands of visitors who have a passion for crafts and hobbies and who are hungry for ideas and information on new products.

Visitors come from all over South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mauritius, Swaziland and further afield from the USA, UK and Europe – all looking for materials, equipment, supplies, ideas and techniques to take back with them.

Hobby-X Johannesburg 2011 was once again a resounding success, with great feedback from exhibitors and visitors, many saying that Hobby-X is their best show of the year! After having hosted 14 successful shows at the Coca-Cola Dome and with the launch of Hobby-X Pretoria in 2010, Expo Trends has now organised 28 Hobby-X exhibitions over the past 14 years in the major centres of South Africa (Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria).

Indulge yourself with chocolate making, beads and gems, books, magazines and gardening.

Explore your creativity with pewter, glass art, doll making, power tools, woodworking and photography.
