Its only days to go before BPESA and the dti arrive in the USA with a delegation of 25 South African companies to engage with potential investors and other interested parties in New York (24th and 25th June) and Las Vegas (25th to 28th June) including participating at the CCW event in Las Vegas.


The New York visit includes the official launch and business seminar on the Global Business Services (GBS) incentive programme to be held on Monday the 24th June, from 8.30am to 11am, at the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce. This will be followed by a Cocktail networking event on Monday the 24th June from 6pm to 8pm at the South African Consulate General.


The Las Vegas visit includes participating at the CCW event where South Africa will have its own pavilion and the South African Investment Engagement Session and business seminar on the Global Business Services (GBS) Sector to be held on Thursday the 27th June, from 10am to 12pm, at the Mirage Hotel. There will also be a Cocktail networking event on Thursday the 27th June from 6pm to 8pm at the same venue.


Presentations will be delivered by the dti and BPESA on the South African GBS market and value proposition, including the incentive programme, with three key case studies presented by operators that demonstrate the value that South Africa has to offer USA based organisations.


The engagement sessions and seminars are part of a joint marketing effort by the South African Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) and BPESA, to engage with American business executives, industry analysts, consultants, associations and media to discuss business challenges and opportunities in the USA market and to consider where, and how, South Africa with its core capabilities and location characteristics could be of value in addressing these. 


The delegation includes senior Government Officials, Industry Association leadership and business executives who can engage with interested parties on all matters relating to doing business with South Africa in this sector.
