Spotong, South Africa’s number one township trade magazine, that empowers, educates and informs township traders across the country, will be celebrating women’s month by hosting their annual Spotong Women in Business event to recognise women entrepreneurs operating within the thriving township market.

Spotong magazine reaches 35 000+ township traders who spend an estimated and combined amount of R450 million a month on stock for their businesses. These entrepreneurs have been serving millions of consumers in their relevant 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 with which to engage, on a one-on-one basis, with the dynamic and influential women of the township, who act as the driving force behind the township economy. Essentially, this event pays tribute to 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 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, Lanco watches, British American Tobacco South Africa(BAT) and Soweto Television, our official television media partner.

Over and above this, every supplier that services this event 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 their 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.
