In addition to the existing SOBA Awards, this year we are
introducing 2 new categories namely, Best in Customer Service, which will recognise
companies providing exemplary services to their clients and Best in Retail will acknowledge
and promote inspiring and innovative retailers across the country. These award categories
have been tailored to portray the feel of the current times and trends, and will ultimately
represent the proud achievements of outstanding companies. At its core, SOBA recognises the important role local businesses play towards the building up of our nation, whichever space in the revenue spectrum that they occupy.
