“Rating will influence and shape the future of the business as we continue to evolve”

Spintelligent Pty, the leading Cape Town-based publisher, trade exhibition and conference organiser, has been awarded a Level 2 BBBEE Contributor rating. “We are absolutely thrilled with reaching this important milestone”, says David Ashdown, Spintelligent Managing Director, adding: “it has been a strategic goal of the business and we achieved it following 6 months of diligent work”.

Ashdown says the BBBEE rating allows the company to “secure and strengthen current institutional business with influential government organisations, parastatals and NGOs, whilst also positively influencing spending by South African corporates who need to engage with BBBEE rated businesses to improve their own contributors score. This in turn will open the door for many new companies to do business with us, therefore increasing our reach to relevant markets within which our sponsors, exhibitors and delegates operate, which will also provide them with more opportunities to conduct business.”

He continues: “a BBBEE rating allows us to open new revenue streams and drive greater revenues from existing relationships. More importantly it ensures that we have a cultural and moral commitment to our employees and the operational nature of our business. A BBBEE rating will influence and shape the future of the business as we continue to evolve.”
