About The Next 48hOURS

The Next 48hOURS was started in 2004 as a weekly tabloid focussing on entertainment and lifestyle in Cape Town and was awarded the Best Niche Publication Award at the Sanlam Press Awards in 2005.

The title has grown to become a leading publication that is used by all the major companies in Cape Town such as, VA Waterfront, CTICC, City of Cape Town, Ratanga Junction, Cavendish, GrandWest, Tsogo Sun, Big Concerts and almost every major event in this City.

The online edition was re-launched at the Design Indaba in 2011 making it a simple WordPress style site. This had a phenomenal effect on our online presence and since then we have launched in JHB and DBN at the Good Food and Wine Shows. We now showcase information for all 3 cities.
