Provantage Events and the next big Audi A1

In celebration of the highly anticipated arrival of the Audi A1, a number of adrenalin-fuelled events and parties were held around the country last month. Provantage Events were proudly commissioned to manage the Audi AreA1, the Dealer and Brand Ambassador parties, and the Audi Underground Advanced Driving Experience on a track that was fast and exhilarating!

The fun and unique Audi A1 Advanced Driving Experience saw a section of the underground parking at the Melrose Arch being transformed into an uber cool racing track complete with carefully planned skid, delightful hairpin bends and an area for authentic handbrake turns. The public, dealers and prospective clients were safely taken through this hair-raising Audi A1 experience by a squad of dedicated professional drivers.

To give the campaign extra traction and additional creative flair, a gallery of the finalist student photographs From the A1 student competition of "Finding the A in SA" competition was constructed and displayed - some real gems indeed.

"During the 26-day national campaign across Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, we highlighted the technological edge of the Audi A1 by bringing in new technology of our own, including 3D holocubes and fun interactive floor projections," says Dom Smith MD of Provantage Events & Experiences.

The campaign created talking points with all stakeholders, both internal and external, and traded on the cool factor that epitomises the Audi A1 brand which is sporty, sophisticated and progressive. Great attention to detail was pulled through all aspects of the campaign, including the food, décor and signature A1 guest cocktails, making for a multi-layered motoring and lifestyle brand experience that delivered on all marketing and promotional fronts.
