NEXT21 Trade Exhibition

01 Mar 2021 - 31 Mar 2022

The annual NEXT21Trade Exhibition is an export development initiative of the Craft and Design Institute (CDI). It is a showcase that reveals the latest furniture, lighting, textiles, fashion accessories and homeware from 23 top South African design talents.

 For 2021, NEXT has been re-strategised to give it increased longevity and a wider global reach. For the first time, NEXT takes the form of an innovative online platform that can be accessed by buyers, members of the trade and the public from across the globe. The year-long digital exhibition is made possible with support from the City of Cape Town (local municipality) and the exhibition is free to access.

NEXT21 constitutes the first-ever digital expo for the CDI and provides a dynamic video walkthrough for viewers. The online exhibition showcases a wide variety of export-ready designers who are launching brand-new, ready-to-order ranges on the platform. The participating businesses represent the best of South African craft and design.
