Rudi’s Choice named ‘Best Overall Stand’ at Decorex Cape Exhibitor Stand Awards

Rudi’s Choice, the granite and marble specialists, took the ‘Best Overall Stand’ prize at the 20th annual Decorex Cape Town Exhibitor Stand Awards held on Friday, 27 April. This architecturally inventive display is one of many ground-breaking stands featuring at Decorex Cape Town – presented by Plascon – taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 27 April to 1 May.


Each year the show’s most dynamic exhibitors are rewarded through the exhibitor awards which are announced on the first evening of the show. Each stand is judged by an independent panel who assess the ingenuity and creativity of each design. This year Decorex Cape Town welcomed Bobby Breen, renowned interior designer who featured at the first Decorex Cape Town exhibition; Kim Cupido, Zando Online Fashion Editor and Trend Forecaster; Marcelle Crowther, interior designer and John Autard, owner of Interior Placements.


Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director of Decorex, congratulated the winners on the exceptional standard of design and quality of products on offer: “The exhibitors have truly outdone themselves for this milestone Decorex Cape Town exhibition. The judges were overwhelmed by the quality of products on offer, as well as the innovative designs of all the stands. Cape Town is a dynamic city that pulsates artistic inspiration and this is truly evident across the entire show.”


For the milestone celebration, special mention was made of six exhibitors who had featured at the inaugural show back in 1999. These include, Conde Naste House, IID Professions, Lectron, Biggie Best, Colonial House and Belgotex Floors. They were joined by title sponsors, Plascon, who have lent their support to the show for the past two decades.


Commenting on the Best Overall Stand, Cullingworth said: “You feel comfortable within the space. When architecture speaks to you – you don’t need anything else! It was executed beautifully with noticeable attention to detail.”
