Interact Media Defined (IMD) was launched in 1995 starting as Plumbing Africa (Pty) Ltd, followed by Pipe Trades Media Group (Pty) Ltd after our acquisition of Refrigeration & Air Conditioning (now RACA Journal) and other print titles. In 2002 we acquired Mining and Travelling Exhibitions (MTE) from Tony Whiteman, who had been running MTE for several years before. In 1996 we acquired the stand alone Plumbing and Engineering Exhibition to become PlumbDrain Africa.
IMD Conferences, Exhibitions and Workshops was formed in 2021 to provide its own identity in the business of exhibitions and the events around exhibitions like workshops and conferences.
The company now includes Mining And Technical Exhibitions (MTE), Plumbing Travelling Exhibitions (PTE) and FRIGAIR Africa where we are appointed by the owners, SA Institute of Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, (SAIRAC), to organise this event which occurs every third year.
IMD continues to engage with the electronic media offering as it develops, and one could say we are now a database management company that has a number of promotional opportunities to offer marketers in the areas of Plumbing, Water, Mining, HVAC&R, Refrigeration, Affordable Housing and Timber Construction.
Our extensive and ongoing reader/user registration programmes coupled with the advantage of being a multi-disciplinary media company where figures are independently audited by the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) provides IMD with a solid base to operate in these areas of media.
The PTE event, as with MTE, is intended to provide marketers with the opportunity to engage with Plumbers, Contractors, Wet Service Engineers, Facility Management companies, Municipal authorities through a hands-on ‘SEE. FEEL. TOUCH’ activity and to learn, through workshops, the correct way of designing and installing the fast changing technology, and to ask questions.
