2004 is drawing to a close and Top Companies Publishing has enjoyed continued success thanks to the enormous body of support from our suppliers, clients, partners, sponsors, readers and staff.
Over the course of this year we have published the well-received once-off publication 'South Africa: the First 10 Years - Government & Business' in celebration of South Africa's first ten years of democracy.
We also launched a new addition to our publishing stable, 'Top Women in Business and Government', sponsored in 2004 by the Department of Trade and Industry (dti), Sentech and the Department of Land Affairs. The premier edition of 'Top Women in Business and Government' was phenomenally well received across both the public and private sectors and production on 2005's edition is well underway.
The company's most established and highly regarded publications: 'South Africa's Top 300 Companies: National Edition' and 'Impumelelo: South Africa's Top 300 Empowerment Companies' were bigger and better this year, with more information on the nation's leading companies and leading empowerment companies than ever before.
We also enjoyed the spectacular success of the Impumelelo Empowerment Gala Awards and Top Women in Business and Government Gala Awards held earlier this year, with the Top 300 National Gala Awards only a couple of months away!
In addition, BEE Online, the online empowerment accreditation and trading site, and BEE news portal and weekly newsletter were launched. BEE Online is set to change the face of business trading and procurement systems, particularly in light of BEE legislation and the various sector and industry Charters and offers businesses unequalled empowerment opportunities. Further, 2004 saw Top Companies host the hugely successful and first every Hofmeyr Impumelelo BEE Conference at Caesers, Gauteng, where we drew together key economic and government leaders over the course of the two-day conference.To come in 2005
