In 2016, the Joburg Shopping Festival will be taking place in East Rand Mall for the first time! From 28 July to 9 August, Ekurhuleni will welcome shoppers for thirteen days of fabulous sales, great deals and awesome prizes to be won. Along with partners UnionPay International, the Gauteng Tourism Authority and the City of Joburg, the festival is committed to realising the vast potential for shopping tourism growth throughout the entire Gauteng region.
The festival draws not only locals but also tourists from across South Africa, from the African continent and beyond. When they arrive, they are sure to have a packed schedule filled with unforgettable moments provided by Gauteng’s vibrant tourism culture. In Ekurhuleni alone, visitors are spoiled for choice.
Located only 7km from South Africa’s busiest airport, the East Rand Mall is home to all the major chain stores and some big name brands too. This mall is more intimate and easier to navigate than some of the larger Joburg centres, and has a wide array of coffee shops and restaurants to satisfy any taste once you’ve shopped ‘til you drop.
There are so many reasons to visit Joburg – and Ekurhuleni – during the Joburg Shopping Festival. It’s clear that Gauteng is so much more than just an airport stopover: it’s a world-class holiday destination for the whole family. Don’t miss out on the perfect shopping holiday this winter at the Joburg Shopping Festival from 28 July to 9 August 2016.
