Vendor / Trader Registration

The new INK & IRON™ Team is passionate to establish a significant footprint within the Tattoo, Car and Motorcycle Lifestyle Market with three shows per year in the key metropolitan areas of Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. This will greatly increase the events’ attendance base throughout South Africa, with a broader opportunity for vendors and trade partners to access this audience countrywide and throughout the year.

INK & IRON™ is expected to attract over 10,000 visitors per day per show, with a steep growth curve projected over the next three years as the festivals’ reputation builds on the success of previous shows.
