Looking back

SARCDA started off as a Pharmacy Exhibition in the 1960's, when pharmacies ventured into the gift-line. SARCDA used to be an acronym for the South African Retail Chemists and Druggist Association. It is now an independent trade name offering fully-fledged Gift, Toy, Décor & Design Trade Exhibitions to service the needs of the entire retail, gift, toy and décor industries.

The heritage of SARCDA includes its experience, knowledge and traditions. Our exhibitors have had a highly profitable association and have grown with us over the past four decades.

Traditionally, SARCDA organises two Gift, Toy Décor & Design Shows annually:

SARCDA International

SARCDA Christmas
