Save the date for the City’s inaugural Atlantis Business Expo

The City is urging investors, entrepreneurs and others in Cape Town to save the date for the inaugural Atlantis Business Expo happening on Wednesday, 19 October 2022 at the Atlantis Multipurpose Sports Centre.

The expo, which is free to attend, will showcase some of the area’s small businesses active across a range of sectors, including security, construction, catering, and business consulting. There will also be a series of information-sharing sessions.

‘In just a few years, Atlantis has become a major economic hub in Cape Town. With this summit, which is geared towards businesspeople, the City is aiming to assist in the development of small and medium-size enterprises by providing them with a platform to market their goods and services, and interact with prominent business leaders, government officials and other key economic stakeholders. The expo is looking to connect entrepreneurs and investors wanting to grow, diversify or enter partnerships with one of the many business and franchise opportunities to be showcased,’ said Alderman James Vos, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Growth.

The region has become a major player in the greentech sector, thanks to the Atlantis Special Economic Zone (ASEZ), attracting R790 million in green investments, with billions more projected over the next two decades.

‘This is an industry that presents huge opportunities for investors, developers and operators while simultaneously ensuring sustained growth that will benefit communities with employment and economic prospects across multiple sectors. This summit is an ideal opportunity to learn about what this area has to offer,’ said Alderman Vos.
