"This inaugural event celebrates excellence in the science and art of marketing. It aims to recognise and reward those innovative marketers whose work demonstrates the intrinsic value inherent to this crucial discipline," says Anne Kirkpatrick, the initiator of the MAA and Marketing Achievement Summit. "We are delighted to work with Valora, which has brought a fresh take on our design aesthetic and content."

MAA aims to raise the profile of marketing in South Africa and elevate its practitioners to the position they deserve within South Africa’s business landscape.

"It is time that marketers, those who drive customer strategy for organisations, are celebrated. It is not only about the creative expression but also the strategic thinking — the science behind a brand’s performance in the market place," says Charles Rupare, Valora CEO and co-founder.
