What we learnt at Madex 2017: Part 1

Madex 2017 was the first edition of the ultimate marketing, advertising, design, social media, eventing and all that good stuff expo. It had to tick many boxes and jump through a lot of hoops to go live, but in the end our team was able to pull it off.

That very same team is already working hard on the 2018 edition, and hoping to tick a few more boxes where we could perhaps improve on last year. As is customary in January, we all look both forwards and backwards. Our team wanted to share what we learnt from working on Madex 2017.


Madex was a challenge to our team, it took a life of its own. We made mistakes, we fumbled while we found our feet and we were forced outside of our boxes.

Here is what I learnt at Madex:

  1. There is always room for improvement, we can always do better and we need to carry on with the pursuit of greatness!
  2. Our visitors are the best sounding boards providing crucial feedback about if we have hit the mark… or missed it!
  3. Exhibitor innovation is the key to our own innovation – by tapping into theirs, we were able to forge our own.
  4. If content is king, delivering on exhibitor and visitor expectations is queen
