The countdown has begun: Joburg Shopping Festival 30 October 2014 – 2 November 2014
Anticipation is mounting as visitors to South Africa are greeted by the ongoing media campaigns currently running at South Africa’s OR Tambo International Airport and other border crossings.The latest Statistics SA tourism arrival figures confirm that the African continent is providing the bulk of the inbound arrivals into the country, and further identifies shopping as one of the major drivers.
Gauteng (and Johannesburg in particular) is a major lifestyle and fashion hub with countless international brands available here; events like the Joburg Shopping Festival therefore can play a major role on their own, or when packaged with other tourism offerings, in attracting foreign visitors to South Africa.
James Delaney of MojaNation Exchange says, “It is an exciting time for Joburg, with a host of events happening over the summer period, culminating with the Joburg Shopping Festival”.
Visitors to the Joburg Shopping Festival will have the opportunity to shop for great deals, promotions and discounts at approx. 200 retailers (and growing) spread across two of Johannesburg’s largest shopping malls, Sandton City and Oriental Plaza and its surrounds. Shoppers also stand the chance of winning fantastic prizes (including a fabulous grand prize) and tickets to attractions in Johannesburg and the rest of Gauteng happening around the time.
Joburg Shopping Festival has also partnered with around 27 fine hotels in and around Johannesburg where weary shoppers can relax after a long day.
