eCommerce conferences worth travelling to in 2017

I love going to conferences; I attend them whenever I get the chance, even though I don’t really need to. Even if I am not there to network, I enjoy the inspirational stories I hear at start-up conferences and get a kick out of hearing about the latest technology developments. It’s worth the time and money to attend. I did some research and these are the tech conferences I’d like to still attend this year if I could.

Best SA Chardonnays in 2015

I like to attend these events even though I could probably just publish the results from the press release that gets sent to me.

It’s a rare opportunity to compare them and find a favourite. Which is exactly what I did.

10 Reasons To Take Your Tongue To The Good Food & Wine Show

Many people thing the Good Food & Wine Show has become boring. They are not incorrect, it has stagnated a bit. But out of nearly 200 exhibitors, surely there must be some worthwhile stuff?

As one of the judges of the stands at the Good Food & Wine Show this year, I had to walk around and give each stand some attention. I took notes, and I compared notes with my fellow judges and I have come up with a list of things you need to taste at the Good Food & Wine Show.

Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards 2015

This year was the 50th year of the awards, which is quite something. Held at the Artscape Theatre, if nothing else, it was going to be a glamorous affair. We arrived to walk the longest red carpet I have seen in a long time. As I expected, everyone was dressed in their best and looking fabulous.

The purpose of the Classic Wine Trophy competition is to see what French wine judges think of South African wines. The competition not only gives local producers valuable feedback regarding their standing on the international stage, but it gives SA wines great exposure overseas through these very influential wine personalities that come here to taste, judge and enjoy our wines.
