After a hugely successful 2015 launching Online Tuesday South Africa in Cape Town, the dream team that is DQ&A and our very own Initiate International decided to make 2016 the year that we conquer Johannesburg! And conquer, we did!
After a jam packed (and stressful) few months master planning everything, we ended up with a hugely successful night on the 17th May, with nearly 300 people from the Marketing & Communications, Creative & eCommerce industries descending upon the Radisson Blu Hotel Sandton for an evening of informative talks, open discussion and networking opportunities with speakers for the night including the SA Country Manager for Zomato, Steve Murray and DQ&A’s Product & Business Development Director all the way from the Netherlands, Michael Ossendrijver talking about the interesting topic of “Which Screen?”
Warming us up on the night was award winning funny-man, comedian Schalk Bezuidenhout who has become a regular fixture at OSTA over the last year. If you haven’t managed to see some of his comedic genius yet, then do your belly-laughing self a favour and get to one of his gigs, or come to the next OTSA!
Kicking off the event with the coveted goodie-bags for the first 50 attendees of the evening, as well as the yummy food from the talented chefs at the Radisson Blu, and an open bar, the night just got better and better with several cool prizes sponsored by Urban Grind Roasters and Bonfafide Beards as well as Zomato and the grand prize coming from the Radisson Blu in the form of a free weekend away!
I don’t think there were any faces without a smile by the end of the evening; which in true Jo’burg style didn’t end until the final business cards had been exchanged and the last drop of wine decanted.
What a success! We look forward to hosting you in Cape Town and Johannesburg later in the year. Keep your eyes peeled for more information by either following OTSA on Facebook or joining our newsletter for the most up to date event info.
