Finding reliable and capable distributors in Cape Town for technology products and manufactured goods requires patience and a lot of local market insight, and Lava IP International can get you talking to interested distribution partners quickly.


There are many factors to think about when making plans to appoint resellers or distributors in Cape Town. Should you look for distributors in Cape Town that cover the whole of the Cape Town region, or should you seek out a distributor for different parts of the Cape Town area such as Hout Bay, the South Peninsula, City Bowl, the Southern Suburbs and the Atlantic Seaboard? Or should you appoint a national distributor which covers Cape Town as a part of the whole of South Africa?

At the same time, it is important to decide if it is best to only target the biggest and best distributors in Cape Town, or if your product, service, or technology would be better suited to a smaller, more dynamic distributor that might potentially face fewer conflicts of interest if they were to market and sell your product in Cape Town. This depends on several things, and we would be happy to discuss this with you further.

With a population of over 3.5 million people and a diverse variety of potential distributors in Cape Town to choose from, we can manage the distributor screening process for you and help you find the most appropriate distributor to meet your needs.

We can even arrange relevant in-person meetings for you in Cape Town if you are planning to visit South Africa.

Our methodology can also be applied to trade show appointment setting as well – if you are planning a Cape Town trade show or are exhibiting at a trade fair or exhibition in Cape Town, then we can arrange for groups of pre-screened buyers to visit your booth. At trade show venues such as the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), our international business matchmaking services can help you get the most out of your visit to South Africa.

Even if you are only flying into Cape Town for a few days, we can arrange a convenient schedule of face-to-face meetings for you with interested distributors in Cape Town that are right for you and your business.

We also cover other locations in South Africa such as Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Durban. Please contact us today to find out how we can help you identify and appoint the ideal distributor in Cape Town or in any of these other locations in South Africa, and we will send you more details of our South African partner search programs:
