Our expertise extends beyond simple event management. We create engaging experiences that are remembered - and not just by you.


Having managed some of the largest brands in the South Africa and developed campaigns across the country, we know what works best for you.


Everything we do is customised for your company. Always. You get the best results for your needs, and it's always built for you.

Our Marketing Event Expertise

Marketing Activations

Marketing isn't only about placing some design work on billboards or recording radio ads. A very important aspect of a marketing strategy is bringing your brand to people, interacting with them and helping them become a part of your product. We build effective campaigns, from concept to design work, organising promoters and marketing collateral, and space rental. Every idea we bring to life is made to push your brand to new heights.


Industry trade shows are a great way to meet potential customers, promote your brand and give important information to help people make the choice to buy stuff from you. Various aspects go towards creating a successful expo stand - the stand design, the staff, the furnishings, the marketing collateral, and the overall approach. Make sure you get the most out of your expo - get the experts in to help.

Product Launches

Launching a product is not always an easy prospect. Careful consideration should be placed on the target marketing and avenues of interest. Often the best approach incorporates PR, expos, advertising and digital media. That's why our integrated approach to marketing provides you with all the expertise required to launch your product.

Guerilla Marketing

Flash mobs, street art and strange technology defines the guerilla marketing space. But one thing that binds all guerilla marketing together is the creativity of it all. Guerilla campaigns can be incredibly effective when implemented well, and engage viewers on a level that isn't possible with other techniques.
