Our duty is to give them world class content and products, that not only entertains but also inspires beyond the TV screen.

The Sunday Times Generation Next Awards is the leading annual youth brand preference and consumer behaviour survey. The results of the survey conducted by HDI Youth Marketers are particularly relevant to brands and advertisers aiming to impact the South African youth market.

The results are a reflection of young urbanites’ aspirations, and reflect future purchase preferences. With an annual spending power of over R120 billion per year, it’s vital for brands to capture the hearts of the youth market, making the Generation Next survey invaluable for brands in South Africa.
