After the highly successful first Online Tuesday South Africa event in Johannesburg which happened on the 17th of May, we waited in anticipation for the second event which took place on the 18th of October at the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel in Sandton. So what do you get when you put the three partners; Initiate International, DQ&A Media Group, and Zomato together? An insightful digital marketing event that not only left you in awe of what’s to come in the digital world, but also gave a lot of insight on what to expect when taking the next step in your digital career. Also, we can’t leave out the amazing food and the whiskey tasting from Glenfiddich (Yes, in case you we were wondering why people are looking a bit too excited for a Tuesday evening)
The Radisson Blue hotel in Sandton did an amazing job with the venue, hosting a large crowd. The evening started out with welcome drinks and starters, before we were ushered to our seats where we were gifted with some delicious Beyers Chocolate and Cocoon Boutique Spa vouchers before the MC, comedian Glen Biderman-Pam took the stage, lightened up the mood and got things started
The first two speakers Werner Uys of Lucan Visuals and Johan Walters form Click2Customers gave an insightful talk that highlighted the importance of content and the potential of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Soon after Bryan Nelson and Lorraine Landon from Google got the crowd of digital gurus mesmerized by enlightening us on how to make your digital experience into a personal one. After the exciting talks, amazing prizes from the Hey Jude app and Google were handed out to the best tweeters. Then it was time for the dinner, drinks, and networking.
The speakers gave a great insight on pushing the boundaries of digital marketing. If you are looking to be in a room filled with people who are excited about all things digital on a Tuesday night with great food and drinks, this is the one event you wouldn’t want to miss. If you were not fortunate enough to make it to this event, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for more information on the next Online Tuesday Joburg event. I cannot wait to see what they have in store for us!
