Partinform Punts Safety and High Quality
Quality branded automotive components equates to roadworthy cars and roadworthy cars equate to road safety, and thus it was appropriate that the Partinform Automotive Components Trade Show pitched its tent at the Royal Hotel in Polokwane on 9 May 2018
Polokwane means "Place of Safety" in Northern Sotho, and the Royal Hotel was indeed a place of safety on 9 May, as the exhibition hall was brimming with high quality safe parts, as the Partinform members proudly displayed their well-established brands, and high quality parts. Polokwane can also lay claim to high quality people, such as Lyndon Ferns, Olympic gold-medallist and former world record swimmer; Retief Goosen, a South African professional golfer who was in the top ten in the Official World Golf Ranking for over 250 weeks between 2001 and 2007; Julius Malema, South African public and political figure; Victor Matfield, former South African national rugby team captain; Peter Mokaba, an anti-apartheid activist; Gift Ngoepe, professional baseball player; Caster Semenya, a South African middle-distance runner and world champion; John Smit, former South African national rugby team captain; Marthinus van Schalkwyk, former Minister of Tourism in the Cabinet of South Africa; and Frederik van Zyl Slabbert, who was a South African political analyst, businessman and politician.
