The PCB is to publish its very own quarterly glossy business magazine.

Capital will promote the greater Pietermaritzburg and KwaZulu-Natal Midlands area through a focus on enterprise. People, and the myriad ways in which they make money and succeed, are what drive an economy and shape the future. Their stories - often inspiring and frequently surprising - are the stories that Capital will tell.

Capital will speak to both a local audience and to a wider national and international readership. It will achieve this through the focused distribution of a quarterly, A4-sized glossy magazine enhanced by a multimedia edition that drives reader interaction beyond what is possible with print. Complete with video, audio, photo galleries, research polls and clickable adverts, this innovative digital version, along with the print issue, will be distributed far and wide via other chambers of business, government departments, consulates, airports and subscriptions.

The first edition will be launched in November 2014; don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this exciting, innovative new publication. Should you wish to be part of this publication please contact: Heidi Jadoo on 033 345 2747 or pcb@pcb.org.za. The booking form is attached and adverts will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis.

The Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business (PCB) was constituted in August 2002 following unity negotiations among three former business organisations – the Pietermaritzburgse Sakekamer, the Midlands Black Business Chamber and the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Commerce and Industries.   In forming a new chamber of commerce and industry, the unifying bodies agreed to forego their independent identities.    Following the unification, the PCB was afforded the recognition of the local and provincial governments as the representative of the business community in Pietermaritzburg.
