The 2014 Assegai Awards enjoys exceptional sponsorship support

Posted: October 20, 2014

The DMASA’s Assegai Integrated Marketing Awards have been a part of the direct marketing landscape since 1998, and this year the Assegai Awards have garnered exceptional sponsorship support from the marketing sector. The strong backing by leaders in the industry ensures that the Association’s common vision and purpose remains front and centre in the arena.

With more and more channels to choose from and increasingly accurate measurement tools available, this year the Awards look to be a truly important occasion. The evening gives the opportunity to agencies to have access to new innovations, trends and even changes in legislation. The sponsors this year, who join the DMASA in creating, nurturing and growing the role we play in South Africa, are:

The Post Office (lead sponsor)
Blue Label Data Solutions
Digital Planet
Effective Intelligence
Information Capital
List Perfect
Merpak Envelopes (Pty) Ltd
Nex Media
Standard Bank
The Marketing Site

“Our appreciation to our sponsors for allowing us to create an environment that supports the DMASA and our vision, is immeasurable. We believe the incredible journey we have taken together in so short a time period, is just the beginning. The Assegai Awards has established a distinctive presence in the event landscape, and sponsorship maintains the momentum behind this,“ says Chief Operating Officer of the DMASA, Alastair Tempest.

“We’d like to remind everyone that the Individual and Company Awards are open for entry until Monday 20 October. This includes the following categories: Brand of the Year: Agency of the Year; SME of the Year; Direct Marketer of the Year; Young Direct Marketer of the Year and Organisation of the Year. The Assegai Awards are about recognising those who deliver for clients, the risk-takers and the trailblazers,” he adds.

It’s also important to remember that this year, the entry is on-line and organisors are looking forward to a full house at the Gala Awards Dinner on Thursday, 06 November when all the winners will be announced.
