From the 24th of September to the 3rd of October 2015, fashion lovers, bargain hunters and mall rats alike will be able to take advantage of great deals and special offers in four Gauteng malls. The festival is expanding its footprint – the festival is not only coming to Sandton City and the Oriental Plaza, our 2014 hosts, but also the gorgeous newly-renovated Rosebank Mall and iconic Eastgate Shopping Centre.
The Joburg Shopping Festival takes its cue from The Dubai Shopping Festival, which is now in its 20th year. Designed to encourage foreign and local tourism via a variety of marketing and other experiential events, this year’s Joburg Shopping Festival has been strategically placed between two other tourist driving events: the Joy of Jazz, which runs from the 24th to the 26th of September, and the EcoMobility Festival happening in the Sandton CBD during the month of October.
The festivities will include spot prizes at the Spin & Win, the chance to win one of four Fiat 500s, as well as a grand prize to the value of R300 000, courtesy of Visa. Need a place to stay to rest your weary legs (and wallet)? The Joburg Shopping Festival has once again partnered with hotel groups, Sun International and the City Lodge Group.
Then, while your credit cards cool down, why not take a break at one of Gauteng’s renowned heritage attractions such as the Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill – or take a trip to the Cradle of Humankind!
