The value of extraordinary human experiences cannot be underestimated. Experiential marketing is based on the foundation of brands interacting with stakeholders through highly personalised, sensory and emotive experiences. It is hardly any wonder that businesses are looking for new ways to make their mark, and that emphasis has shifted from advertising to entertaining.

Headed by Stefan Norval, the Afresh team has been delivering outstanding events across the country for 5 years. At the root of its success lies the ability to listen to, interpret and deliver on a specific brief. Recognising that every client is unique, Afresh strives to produce a highly tailored and completely customised experience.

The Afresh team is of the belief that nothing less than excellent will do. Their years of experience have resulted in a closely guarded collection of first-class suppliers, venues and service providers to give each event that special edge. Mediocrity has no place in this house!

Imaginative concepts, innovative design, understated elegance and a fresh approach translate into highly memorable functions, which make for a long lasting impression.

Cybercellar.com offers the widest selection of South African wines at cellar door prices, and now offers an array of international wine too. Cybercellar.com prides itself on bringing the best wine at the best prices to the customer and this service sets them aside from others in the industry.

Wines have always been the speciality for Cybercellar.com, however their portfolio has expanded significantly in recent years. Near the end of 2015 they began adding spirits as well as beers to their portfolio. Customers are now able to purchase almost all types of alcoholic beverage from Cybercellar.com with the site listing over 3 500 products. They currently stock the most comprehensive selection of premium local and imported beverages from whiskies and craft beers to tequilas and craft gins. This is further more strengthening their positon as a leader in the market.

One very important aspect of online shopping for consumers is the delivery process. With Cybercellar.com, delivery is not only safe and reliable but extremely affordable. For orders under R1000, there is a delivery charge of R49.50. Orders over R1000 are delivered for free within South Africa. The average time from order to delivery is 2 - 4 days depending on your region in the country. Cybercellar.com has just launched a brand new service; the express delivery that prides itself on getting the product to the customers’ door in three hours for only R99, although this only applies to Cape Town right now, the rest of the country will soon be catered for.
