Many PR campaigns rely on events and activations to grab attention and to impress audiences. To meet this need Meropa has its own division that runs spectacular events both big and small.
We have done everything from Presidential to product launches; from staff events to intimate, private dinners – and Meropa’s events are always special and always praised. Our Mother-and-Daughter Events team of Di and Liza Sutherland have more than 30 years’ experience and Di is a past president of the South African chapter of ISES (International Special Events Society). They conceptualise and organise launches, banquets, press conferences, golf days, musical events, theme functions, trade delegations and product launches.
You can leave it all to us. We conceptualise the event, find and book the venue, help build and manage the guest list, design and issue invitations, manage the RSVPs, arrange the décor, the catering, the sound and lighting, the special effects and the MCs.
All of this is integrated into a strategic communications plan which talks to your PR plan. We even write the speeches if required and invite media and write and issue the media releases and thank you letters to guests after the event. Our events department serves our existing clients but also undertakes stand-alone work for its own clients.
