Silas Howarth

Director, Sexpo

�Sex sells, and the success of Sexpo proves it,� Silas Howarth says. In 2006, Howarth and his two younger brothers, Cairo and Calvin, realised that South Africa was lacking a fun and entertaining expo aimed exclusively at the adult market. They researched adult expos around the world and chose Sexpo � an internationally recognised health, sexuality and lifestyle event that originated in Australia. The next year, the brothers brought the event to Johannesburg. Sexpo, Howarth says, broke exhibition records with over 32 000 people attending just the premier that first year, with more than 100 000 coming through the doors. Now the brothers have added events in Cape Town and Durban making Sexpo one of the fastest growing expos in the country, with over 150 exhibitor stands and various sexual wellbeing workshops. � Eamon Allan
