We produce information, events and media brands for professional markets
Our story begins in 2006 when Uloyiso Ngavu, Victor Dube and Tony Ramaphosa started a business magazine having spotted an opportunity to be the first full colour magazine in the transport market. Using the then new power of DTP, Jozi Media was born, and over one decade the company has navigated new technologies and several recessions, moving from a paper-based magazine business to a truly multi-media organisation with interests in data, events, online and video. We now target the transport, construction, asset management and technology sectors, with many market leading brands.
Jozi Media has always worked hard to provide our community and clients with the very best service and value, and this approach has seen many of the same clients still partnering with us 10 years on. We thank our staff, clients and readers, and look forward to the next 10 years.

The events team at Jozi Media prides itself on organising and running big corporate events and small business launch and networking events.

Aside from the big events, we run business-networking events for smaller groups of 30 to 100 guests. For previous events we have used the Tsogo Sun hotel group, who provide outstanding venues.

We are always trying to make each element of what we do better value for our customers. To keep us aiming high we have nine strong company values. These help us to understand what it is we want to deliver as a team and more importantly, remind us to do the best that we can do, everyday.
First and foremost we have tremendous passion for our products! How can we expect you to love what we do, if we don’t love what we do?
The most important things are our customers. If you are not happy, we are not happy. And we LOVE making you happy! ;D
Value for Money
This is the key to everything we do. No matter what we deliver to you, it has to be of great value. We work hard to make this happen and will always strive to be the very best – at the very best price possible. Got some suggestions to make? Tell us and we will listen!
We continually re-invest in our products and services, growing and improving them for the better each year. What we have achieved in a short space of time is a true credit to our team. When something works, we say, “what will make it better?”.
We aim to make everything beautiful, with a real ‘wow’ factor. The quality and design of each of our products matters to us a LOT. Our brands are instantly recognisable and pack a real punch, all thanks to our talented designers.
Work is fun!
We spend most of our days working, so it is important to make work an enjoyable and fun place to be. It’s a wonderful thing to get up in the morning and look forward to going to work with a great bunch of people.
Friendly & Honest
We treat others like we want to be treated. Simples! As some annoying but incredibly successful Henry Ford commercial once said. We are lucky to work with some of the best people around. It’s nice to be important, but it’s far more important to be nice.
Thinking outside of the box
It is important that we keep trying new things and implementing fresh ideas, it is a key factor in our future. All ideas are welcome. The kookier the better!
We don’t wait around, we will inevitably make mistakes, so we learn, we review and we move forward. Got a good idea? Great, lets try it!
Creating a great brand is key to every thing we do. How a customer views this brand is of great importance to us and our development of other products in that particular market. We are pleased to say that we have many market leading products.
