We are currently marketing the PONTA Autumn festival heavily on the Internet through Facebook and email campaigns. There are opportunities available for your business to get involved to promote and market your company at a very quite time of the year.

This is a great time to offer specials to ensure your business do not run at a loss so when the season does turn around you make profit from day 1 and not have to fill the cash flow hole caused by the quite period between seasons. Ideally you work out what your costs are for the month and try and cover them in this short 10 day period by offering specials on accommodation, food, scuba diving, fishing etc.

The festival is currently planned for the period shortly after elections in South Africa on the 7th May giving us a window period of 10 days for the first amateur surf contest, which hopefully grows into a major event as did the cycle contests the Knysna Oyster festival generated years ago.

The surfing contest will not be a major event but if we do attract a few good surfers they will amongst themselves vote for the top 3 surfers that have impressed them while surfing with each other. There will be no heats etc. but the surfer would have to impress with his behavior out on the water, their social interaction and their surfing. So much more than the typical surf contest and character tools they do need to develop if wanting to take surfing to the next level.

Ponta is ideally positioned to host a major photographic/videography contest similar to the Sodwana shootout, which is now hosted by iSimangoliso in the school holidays. This does not suit many of the entrants as getting onto a launch can be tricky. The biodiversity in the region also gives one the opportunity to practice macro photography on insects, Zoom action shots on Birds etc

Music will be a major part of the festival with some big names appearing in the future...

We need venues available who are willing to offer package deals to various musicians such as free accommodation, meals etc. plus a payment for the evening they entertain at your venue. The STRAB festival is shortly after this festival so we should be able to attract a few musicians appearing to attend our festival to relax and practice before their main debut at STRAB.

For any additional queries or opportunities you would like to suggest or promote please contact us on admin@pontainfo.com specifying your requests. Keep in mind we can assist with marketing whatever it is from website design/updates and email marketing.
