Exhibit A: Hott3D Exhibitions are key for companies launching new brands or products. Hott3D delivers quality cost effective design and implementation of stands for businesses of all sizes. Exhibitionists tend to have something of a tawdry reputation – fortunately, Michael Beattie is not that kind of an exhibitionist! His company, Hott3D is built on his ten years’ experience working for a leading company in the exhibition industry, and designs, manufactures and builds exhibition stands, trade show booths, office interiors, experiential marketing concepts and temporary event infrastructure. “We are finding an increasing number of clients want to do more with less. Budgets are definitely tighter, but high expectations of end product remain. Hott3D presents all its clients, regardless of size, in the best possible light. We do this through effective design and delivery of a quality product that acts as their office away from their office for a few days. We believe we play a key role in helping clients to launch either their brands or products into concentrated markets, via trade shows,” he says. Currently, he adds, the company has an excellent team in place, a quality little factory and he believes Hott3D is producing some of the best work in the industry. He is eager to capitalise on an expanding industry, pointing out that new venues are opening at Century City and the extension of the CTICC is not far away either. “With the growing potential of this sector, we would like funding to purchase a business premises, as well as buy a CNC router and a spray booth for our custom division. Ultimately, our goal is nothing less than to become the preferred supplier in Southern Africa of an offshore global exhibition company and to establish ourselves as the industry leader in both design and build,” states Michael.
