These companies won big at the 2017 PriceCheck Awards

The 2017 PriceCheck Tech and eCommerce Awards took place last night at gala dinner hosted at Cape Town’s Westin Hotel.

The PriceCheck Awards, now in its second year, has also expanded to include technology companies not specifically plying their trade in the ecommerce space. This has had an effect on the nominees and awards too, with startups and NGOs now also recognised.

Although Takealot dominated the nominations with four, followed by Superbalist, Travelstart and Bidorbuy with two, no single company walked away with more than one award. That’s in stark contrast to last year’s domination by the former, which walked away with four awards in 2016.
