“The Exporter of the Year awards evening is the pinnacle event on our calendar as we honor and celebrate the achievements in our region.” adds Quintin Levey, Exporters Eastern Cape chairman .  “Partnering with the  Magnetic Storm team, gave us huge peace of mind knowing that the technical solution and set design was in the best hands”.
