Hobby-X 2023

04 May 2023  -  07 May 2023

Hobby-X was launched in 1998 and has grown exponentially over the past 24 years. It is now a highly popular event and has become the flagship event in South Africa to showcase all things hobby related - craft, arts, woodworking, hands-on demonstrations, and practical workshops.

In 2020 Messe Frankfurt South Africa acquired the Hobby-X brand and only hosted its first edition under new ownership in May 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and delivered an outstanding event that built on the successes of the past, whilst adding and amending a few elements to create an event that was not only a testament to the past but that built a foundation for growth. Professional hobbyists and those searching for a creative outlet come from all over South Africa and neighbouring countries in search of materials, supplies, equipment, ideas, and techniques. At Hobby-X, we curate a wide range of products and services and showcase and demonstrate the latest technologies that cater to the needs, interests, and preferences of our visitors. The Hobby-X practical workshops are an event highlight and will continue to play a pivotable role in the event as they provide a creative outlet for visitors.
