Business in Cape Town
Cape Town is not just a great place to visit, but also a great place to do business. It offers excellent value for money when it comes to conferences and events, while the infrastructure and lifestyle make it easy for expatriates to settle in.
A world-class port city, its location is well placed to service ships travelling between Asia and South America, while many companies that provide oil and gas services along the west coast of Africa choose to base themselves in the Mother City.
In addition, the city is regarded as the gateway to Africa because of its excellent harbour.
Creative thinkers are naturally drawn to Cape Town, home to some of the world's top advertising agencies, design studios and film companies. The city was chosen as the 2014 World Design Capital, testimony to its creative and industrial sectors.
The Loerie Awards, South Africa’s most prominent brand communication awards festival, has been held in Cape Town every year since 2009.
