Trade Exchanges

Due to the increased interest in the magazines and requests for Trade Exchanges, the following parameters have been set since 2013. All Trade Exchanges must be organised directly with the Publisher or Editor.

Trade Exchanges are considered for Special Features, Reader Giveaways, Competitions & Promotions.

Trade Exchanges are limited and are selected per issue according to the reader value-add for that specific issue.

Trade Exchanges are determined on a rand / space value basis.

For Production Promotions – samples for review can be posted to

Cape Town

Restaurants requiring reviews are to arrange an all inclusive dining experience for 2 .

Trade Exchanges for Restaurants / Venues and Destinations that require reviews / features can be arranged accordingly – we consider reviews / features in all 9 provinces as well as surrounding countries. Features are written by the Publisher or a selected journalist. Trade Exchanges are determined on a rand / space value basis.

Venues and Destinations need to arrange Travel & Full Board accommodation for the writer & photographer, space will be allocated in exchange to the value of the trade required to do the feature.
*All Trade exchanges are considered and are at the publisher’s discretion, and are space dependent.

Unfortunately it is not possible to honour all requests, as our magazines are small and therefore offer relative exclusivity. For Further Information contact: Vashti Derrick (Publisher(at)
