Partinform Goes Platinum
During the week that South African athletes were harvesting gold, silver and bronze medals at the Commonwealth Games, the Partinform Automotive Components Trade Show was going platinum at the Heuwelzicht Function Venue in Rustenburg.
Held on 11 April 2018, in the heart of the world’s biggest platinum belt, the Rustenburg Partinform show was a chrome-plated affair, with a vibrant posse of automotive aftermarket visitors, all intent on rounding up as much automotive parts information they could get from the smorgasbord of exhibition stands, preening with well-thought out displays, and brimming with profitable and precious information, from the highly technical to the perfectly prosaic. aBr, the passionately pro Partinform platinum publication, was there to pen and photograph the proceedings:

Quiz Show Winner
Staving off the challenge of the four finalists, the winner of the parts quiz show was Salim Jalal of Zinniaville Motor Spares. Salim was ably assisted by Nadia Dudhia of Dudhia Auto Spares. When asked to describe the Rustenburg Partinform show in one word, the duo answered in unison – “perfect”, a profound partnership of participation. Salim wins an Xtreme Karting Experience at Zwartkops Raceway, joining the other winners in an adrenaline rush on 16 November 2018.
