Good news for those of you planning to attend Soweto Innovation Week next month. All ticket prices have just been cut down to just a quarter of the originally set prices.
“Super early bird” tickets, which originally went for R1 500, are now just R300, early bird tickets (originally R1 950) are now R500 and general admission tickets (originally R3 000) are now R650.
“The changes that have been made with regards to the initial ticket pricing structure will now afford individuals across Soweto and surrounding areas an equal opportunity to be able to attend this premier tech conference,” the event’s organisers said.
Those who have already bought tickets at the first announced prices either have the option of being refunded the remainder amount from or be given tickets worth the original price they bought them for, says Gabriel Ramokotjo from Soweto Innovation Week.
Soweto Innovation Week runs from 8th to 10 April at the Soweto Theatre in Jabulani. Visit the event’s website for more information and to get your ticket.
UPDATE: The organisers of Soweto Innovation have announced that the event has been postponed to a later date for this year which will be revealed soon.
“We would like to maintain a high quality event and have been unable to secure the level of sponsorship we would like for the April event and that has prevented us from moving ahead with our Inaugural Event as scheduled,” reads the event’s home page.
