Our vision for the NUZ Festival & Expo is for it to contribute to the long term development of Umlazi’s and the broader KwaZulu-Natal economy and community and in so doing achieve international recognition for Umlazi, KwaZulu-Natal and the event.

In the longer term, we aim to establish the NUZ Festival & Expo within 10 years as Africa’s largest and most successful event of its kind, attracting exhibitors, performers and visitors from all over Africa and the world. This positions the event ideally for sponsors wishing to expand their brand reach, marketing activations and relationship building nationally.

Well-known events in South Africa which the Umlazi Festival & Expo aims to emulate include the Grahamstown Festival, Macufe, the Cape Town Jazz Festival and Innibos. The NUZ Festival is the only event in South Africa that combines all of the activities found in these events, and more, making it a unique event in this country.
