Spotong Magazine celebrates women who are in the business of making business

Spotong, South Africa’s leading township trade magazine, will be celebrating women’s month by hosting their annual Spotong Women in Business event on the 24th of August to recognise women entrepreneurs operating in the thriving township market.

Spotong empowers, educates and informs township traders across South Africa reaching more than 35 000 township traders which have an estimated combined monthly spend of R450 million, on stock and products for their businesses. These entrepreneurs have been serving millions of consumers in their communities for decades, both empowering their surrounding communities and providing an opportunity for brands to interact with township consumers.

The highly successful and much anticipated Spotong Women in Business event provides an invaluable platform to engage, one-on-one, with dynamic and influential female township entrepreneurs, the driving force behind township economies. On the day the ladies will be treated to inspirational talks from industry leaders, exciting give-aways and get a chance to interact with the trade exhibitors that will be on show.The event pays tribute and celebrates these proactive, ambitious and inspirational ladies who connect and empower the township community as a whole.

Sean Press, CEO of Contact Media and Communications says, “As Spotong Magazine, we are looking forward to another very successful and inspiring event and we would like to offer potential sponsors the opportunity to engage directly with township entrepreneurs. We look forward to working with brands that want to make a social impact in the communities in which they operate, whilst having the benefit of driving key marketing initiatives as well.”

The event, which will take place on 24 August 2017 in Orlando, Soweto, includes headline sponsor, LegalWise, as well as Spotong’s vehicle partner, Mahindra. Other sponsors include: Club 10, Ricoffy Instant Coffee, British American Tobacco South Africa(BAT) and Soweto Television, our official television media partner.

Walking the talk of local empowerment, every event supplier has been sourced from the local township community, ensuring that the event not only impacts the 800 invited guests, but their local communities as well.

Orlando Community Hall is sure to be filled with hundreds of success stories from the women who sustain families, and extended families, through the taverns, shebeens, spaza shops, B&Bs and Shisanyamas that they run. Spotong Magazine, and all event partners, look forward to hosting another very successful day in Soweto.
