Carol has worked in South Africa’s business tourism industry for the past 25 years – from arranging exhibitions, events and conferences, to managing venues and facilities. She was a director of the AA at Kyalami racetrack and then opened her own company. She later sold a majority share in this company to Dutch exhibition company
Understanding the need for an empowerment partner, she proceeded to facilitate a buy-out of RAI shares to the Thebe Tourism Group, a subsidiary of the Thebe Investment Corporation. She continues to head up the Thebe Exhibitions and Projects Group and remains a 30% shareholder.
Sasol Pension Fund, owners of the Coca-Cola dome, renewed the management contract for the venue with Thebe Venue Management, a division of Thebe Exhibitions & Projects Group.
Today the Thebe Exhibitions & Projects Group is one of the largest companies of its kind in Africa, with significant market share. The group owns major exhibition titles such as Decorex, Mediatech Africa, The Business Opportunities and Franchise Expo, The Retirement Expo and The Sports and Events Tourism Exchange.
