Event Management & Concert Promotion

                                                        


Our event management
approach entails the application of project management to the creation and development of festivals, events, and conferences. We study the intricacies of the brand, identify the target audience, devise the event concept, plan the logistics, and coordinate the technical aspects before actually launching the event. The recent growth of festivals and events as an industry throughout Africa means that the management can no longer be ad hoc. Events and festivals, have a large impact on the communities and, in some cases, the whole country. The African industry now includes events of all sizes from the Wold Cup down to a breakfast meeting for ten business people. Many industries, charitable organizations, and interest groups hold events of some size in order to market themselves, build business relationships, raise money or celebrate.

Marketing tool

We advise companies of all sizes to consider event management as one of the strategic marketing and communication tools. From product launches to press conferences, we help companies create promotional events to help them communicate with clients and potential clients. We provide them with strategies for targeting their audience by using the news media, in order to generate media coverage which will reach thousands or millions of people. We also invite their audience to their events and reach them at the actual event.

Services

Our event managers have extensive experience in supervising diverse corporate events, such as product launches, press conferences,corporate anniversary parties, meetings, conferences, and marketing programs such as road shows and grand opening events. In addition, they can coordinate special corporate hospitality events such as concerts, award ceremonies, film premieres, parties to launch new products or services, fashion shows, commercial events, and even private (personal) events such as weddings and religious services.
