About Us

Trade Fair Tours is dedicated to offering quick and efficient service to both travel agents and business travelers visiting German Trade Fairs and other Trade Fair cities worldwide.  We specialise in making your travel plans easier by offering affordable air fares, a wide range of hotel options, airport transfers, sightseeing if required, and travel insurance.

Trade Fair Tours was founded by Peter Stephenson in Durban South Africa in 1993 who recognised the need for a specialised agent to assist business people travelling to German Trade Fairs. Over the subsequent years Peter has made frequent visits to numerous German cities checking hotel standards and locations and easy access to fairgrounds.  Therefore his specialised knowledge is able to give trustworthy and reliable advice on all your travel requirements.

Peter Stephenson has over 45 years of travel experience in the corporate and leisure travel industry and was appointed the official South African tour operator for the South African German Chamber of Commerce in 1994.  For the last four years Trade Fair Tours has also been appointed by Reed Exhibitions Shanghai as the official South African Tour operator for organisers of the Sino Corrugated Trade Fair in Shanghai.

Trade Fair Tours has organised incentive travel for a variety of companies such as, Audi, Volkswagen SA, Anchor Yeast, Midas and XEROX. In addition, for the past 15 years, we have arranged package tours to German Fairs in collaboration with various trade magazines such as Metal Working News, Castings SA and SA Plastics.

Due to the increased interest in Trade fairs in China we now offer the same specialised service to people attending Trade Fairs in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou.
