Last updated: Thursday, 20 June 2024 is a brand reaching millions around the world and around the corner on multiple platforms. And we reach and engage with them in all the channels that they live in and love. Our mission is to have a DNA-changing impact on this province through moments of joy. For happier people. For a better place. 

What we do is not advertising, it’s story-making. And here’s how we can work together.


We built the Events Marketing Programme to bring small, medium and big events to our massive and ever-growing audiences across many channels. 

The programme is smart and effective marketing that’s worked for partners from as small as the Chinese Food Fair, to as big as the internationally renowned Investec Cape Town Art Fair. As unique as the Cederberg family festival Wolfie to the wellness festival Retreat Yourself. Read more about our Events Marketing Programme.

Through the Partner Impact Programme owner-driven businesses get access to reach, expertise and marketing that they would otherwise not be able to get on their own.

It's marketing that keeps your business top of mind for the whole year with consistent marketing. To reach the local market from around the corner to SA-wide.

And hard-to-reach and expensive-to-reach international visitors, and people looking for things to do. And reach them day in and day out. The Partner Packages get up to 5x what you pay for. It’s about long-term success that we can build on year on year for you.
