Custom Designed Exhibition Infrastructure

Handcrafted from the ground-up, our custom exhibition stands are designed to be flexible yet transform an exhibition space into an experience that engages, and delights attendees.

Event Infrastructure

Inspiring designs

Our in-house design team ensures that the stand design represents your brand and corporate identity, whether you opt for a custom or modular stand type.

Event Infrastructure

Container Conversions

Whether you need a temporary office space on a construction site, or want to open a new business but don’t have the space, our shipping container solutions are what you need!

System design stands

A system design stand is incredibly versatile and because it's made of aluminium it ensures that high disposable costs are unnecessary.

Lights, camera, action!

The lighting, sound and power solutions at any event or exhibition play a crucial role in the type of experience, atmosphere and overall appearance created.

I want to STAND out by:


Planning an

Awesome Event


Creating an

Amazing Exhibit


Organising an

Engaging Show


Converting a

Versatile Container


Compex is a purpose driven business whose core focus is on the happiness of our customers through the creation of shared value, beautiful designs and total craftsmanship of exhibition stands and event infrastructure.

We know the only way to grow and develop our brand is through collaborating (chatting, emailing, brainstorming, idea generating, whatsapping and sipping tea or coffee) with the people who engage daily with our business. This is why our vision is to become the leading (most kick-ass) exhibition and event infrastructure service provider in southern Africa by creating shared value for all our stakeholders (yes, that’s right, that’s all of you).

What Our Clients Think


After every exhibition that Compex builds  for me, I have to take time out to find the words that sufficiently THANK and describe the overall EXPERIENCE.  And I use the word EXPERIENCE because that’s exactly what it is – it’s not just a job that gets done – the process is an EXPERIENCE from start to finish and each time it’s FLAWLESS, PROFESSIONAL AND CUSTOMER-DRIVEN.

There’s no doubt that Compex is one of the very few service providers that I have the privilege to work with, where every team member is customer-driven and service focused and delivers LEGENDARY SERVICE EVERY TIME.  That’s a tall order, and yet Compex manage to do it EVERY TIME.

We would like to thank you for your professional service and the fact that you delivered what we requested in such short time frame.

The stand worked perfectly for our needs and looked clean & clinical as we prefer.

First and foremost a HUGE thank you to you and your team for an exceptionally well run exhibition at the SASOG Congress 2016.

I have received nothing but compliments from the industry.  THANK YOU! Yolisa was professional and friendly at all times, nothing was ever too much for her.  She made my life easy as a congress organiser.  It was an absolute pleasure working with Yolisa.

So, an enormous thank you Yolisa for all you did to make our SASOG Congress exhibition so spectacular – Compex is fortunate to have staff of your calibre! My colleagues and I only have high praise for Emmanuel, Emmanuel was always polite, attentive, highly professional and really a pleasure to work with. The service Emmanuel provided was nothing short of amazing.  His knowledge was unsurpassed!

Yvonne Fernandes



Just a quick long overdue note to say thank you very much for all you and your company for us at the event to get our stand exactly the way we wanted it.

We really were impressed with your great service and flexibility to suit our needs.

We really appreciate it and I am looking forward to dealing with you again in the future and this event and possibly others.

I think I speak for the whole Bruidsgids team when I say THANK YOU.

It has been a great privilege working with you and your team, and I really look forward to work with you soon.

Thank you for handling all the exhibitors and their problems flawlessly and with what seemed to be no effort at all. You are really a good example of what client service is all about.

Please pass this message on to the whole team that were involved.

Just wanted to pop you an email to say THANK YOU for everything. We appreciate it and it is always such a pleasure working with Compex and your crews.

Expo weekend was awesome, and a success, and part of it is because of you!

Just small hiccups with late arrivals on Friday, but other than that just fab!

Thanks again, have a great week and chat soon.
