Global trade show supports entrepreneurs

May 24th, 2019, Published in Uncategorised articles

Business opportunities, networks and knowledge for entrepreneurs and owners of small- and medium-sized businesses are a key focus of the 2019 Global Trade Show of Networking and Match-Making South Africa (GTS 2019). Now in its third year, GTS 2019 takes place from 29 – 31 July 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand, Johannesburg.

Access to markets and strong networks are two of the main obstacles currently facing entrepreneurs and small- to medium-sized businesses. The Global Trade Show of Networking and Match-Making South Africa offers a unique platform for entrepreneurs to explore local and international markets, as well as to develop vital business linkages across the globe. Embassies, trade missions, government, parastatals, associations and companies all support GTS, giving entrepreneurs and other business owners much-needed access to many markets – provincial, local, continental, regional and international.

With more than 6-million people in South Africa currently unemployed and youth unemployment currently at 3.3-million, the show aims to play a significant and constructive role in addressing this.

A series of “Entrepreneurs in Action” workshops are being planned alongside the exhibition. In addition to these, a number of events, workshops and sessions will take place, addressing topics such as export opportunities, the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), Industry 4.0, e-commerce, digital marketing and financing – all topics that those in business need to know about to boost their success.  This is also an excellent learning opportunity for new graduates who have specialised in other areas.
