Johannesburg - Südafrika / Johannesburg - South Africa

Welcome to the XING Johannesburg Group.

The XING Johannesburg group was launched in 2011 and is associated to the "XING Ambassador Cape Town Group" and the "XING Durban Group", and together these three groups form the "South Africa Social & Business Network".

The "South Africa Social & Business Network" was founded in 2007 by Claus Lauter, Marketing Director of Intergate Immigration Service, and is established itself as the most successful business network for expats in South Africa.

The network provides as platform for members, who are living in, moving to or are interested in South Africa to interact, and offers an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences, as well as open up business opportunities.

Joining the group will allow members to create and foster business and social relationships in Cape Town, Johannesburg or Durban, within a relaxed context.

Our credo says it all: "Very good business needs very good connections!"

More than 3.500 people have joined the network, and monthly meetings are held in each respective city, where members can socialise and talk business.

We always look forward to welcoming new members to join our "South Africa Social & Business Network", as any successful network needs a constant inflow of new ideas, perspectives and opportunities.

As a member of our group you will have the opportunity to enjoy and take part in exclusive monthly events, where you will meet interesting people, be offered presentations from professionals as well as have an chance to present yourself as well. All in a relaxed atmosphere.

It is our aim to continue to be an active and vibrant network, and as a result rely on our members to be the driving force behind the success of each XING group.

In order to achieve this, here are a few suggestions:

"Spread the word!"

Expand the scope of the network through targeted integration of new members. The more new members the network attracts, the more opportunities you will have to interact with people you have never met or done business with.

Spreading the word and inviting new members will expand not only the XING network, but also your own and of those of the people you invite. Although we are constantly growing, one can never have enough business and social connections.

"Become an active member!"

Being an active member means attending our events and actively networking with others. It can also include giving a brief presentation about yourself or your business.

Fostering existing relationships is important, but making new connections offers new opportunities both for you and other members of the network.

Everyone is invited to take part in our “Live Networking Events” and we are more than happy to welcome your friends and/or business partners.

Our networking events take place once a month in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, and suggestions for venues are always welcome.

We wish you lots of fun and success in our XING Joahnnesburg Group and with the "South Africa Social & Business Network".
