About Us

The Missing Link has been in operation for close to 20 years. It has set-up small and large events in cities and rural hamlets across South Africa.

We operate from Port Elizabeth, which is central to all regions in the country.

Optional is branding, floorplans, furniture hire, exhibitor liaison and full project/ event management.

The Missing Link is a CC, owned and directed by Deon Engelke, who has worked in Journalism, Corporate Communications and Event Management with companies like Avusa, Telkom and lnkanyezi Event Organisers. He has a BA (NMMU) and MBL (UNISA).
