The recent violence in Johannesburg, South Africa, against foreign nationals has been deeply unfortunate. Eventus International would like to assure all our guests that they will not be affected as the xenophobic attacks are not taking place in our beautiful mother city, Cape Town. 

South Africa is a multicultural society that promotes interaction among people of different backgrounds and our government has taken a harsh stance against the current xenophobia taking place in Johannesburg and police are out in numbers to combat the possible cases of Xenophobia.

BiG Africa Roadshow in Cape Town is made up of a one-day conference, followed by a spectacular networking function designed to give you the chance to meet and network with fellow professionals. The networking function will feature delicious local foods and drinks, all set against the backdrop of the exceptional views of the Atlantic ocean.

  • Remote Gaming Q&A: An update from the Department of Trade & Industry led by  Dean Macpherson, Shadow Minister, The Department for Trade & Industry, South Africa.
