Technology continues to revolutionise industries globally. Things are changing faster than ever and because of this, businesses are in a constant state of flux. Combined with this trend is a tightening of the global economy and thus, shrinking marketing budgets.
Our clients’ want technologically savvy solutions that yield an ROI. The days of satisfaction stemming from aesthetically pleasing pop-up activations and events have passed. For each Rand that is invested, our clients’ need to see measurable results in the form of increased sales or consumer data. Or both.
In January 2017, we made further advances to becoming the leading event management supplier in South Africa with the purchase of Splash. This purchase is part of our strategy to adapt with our clients’ shift in priorities. It has empowered us to provide brands with measurable in-person marketing solutions.
