September brought with it not only spring, but another successful event masterfully organised and executed by the Uppe-team.
Our most recent event was a weeklong Women’s Day celebration for Bayer Crop Science, which took place over five days in five different venues across the country. These sessions, which commemorated it’s fifteenth anniversary this year, aimed to empower, inform, acknowledge and thank women for the role they play in agriculture.
The orchestration of such an event may sound daunting, but with Uppe on your side you can rest assured. From the get-go, we take hands with our clients regarding every detail and decision.
As is custom for an event like this, step one is theme development. When it comes to creating unique and appropriate themes for your business, we are well-oiled. Whether your aim be to empower or entertain – our team of creatives have you covered. For this event, the theme was ‘’Flowers’’ – drawing not only on the beauty of women, but on their strength, versatility and diversity in agriculture. Five venues were briefed with a mood board, and the theme was wonderfully executed in decor, design and catering.
Whilst the day was dashing, the weeks leading up to it involved hard work. Event invitations were designed and sent out to 600 invitees across South Africa. When it was not possible for an individual to receive an electronic invite, physical invitations were sent via post. Uppe also designed and supplied programmes, pull-up banners and electronic presentations. Furthermore, gifts were packaged and couriered to each venue.
Technical support, including sound and visual, as well as entertainment are part of the package when working with Uppe. We ensured that the ladies were well taken care of. GP van Rheede van Oudtshoorn performed at the events, whilst agri-chem expert Gerhard Verdoorn was the guest speaker. It was also our pleasure to welcome our very own CEO Milanie Vosloo on stage. Milanie, who is a bestselling Christian author, spoke to the ladies regarding strength and belief.
With Uppe on your side, your next corporate event will be the talk of the town for months to come! Talk to us today.
