Champ Marketing & Events is 22 years young
“We need to market our town before we market our clients” – this is the motto of Champ Marketing’s Johan Pieters and Christo van der Vyver.
One of the most important projects they tackled was the “Get Newcastle on the Weather” project. The team held a meeting with a provincial radio station to ensure Newcastle’s weather is mentioned in the daily weather bulletins.
After that, a meeting was held with SA Weather to assist with Newcastle being on the TV and other media weather bulletins.
The team did well, and these days Newcastle is on the majority of all news bulletins or weather maps in printed media.
The R34 Memel Road was a big project driven by Champ Marketing. The project only came to an end after numerous campaigns with different organisations, political leaders and business leaders. The Champ team met with the Provincial Team of the Free State, and a promise was made to rebuild the R34 – Memel Vrede Road. Today, the community of Newcastle and surrounding areas can enjoy the fruits of this well organised Champ Marketing project. When you think about an event, marketing or corporate gifts, you think about Champ Marketing & Events. This young company has vast experience in event organising, from 10 people to thousands of people together.
