Head Honcho, one of South Africa’s leading clothing brands and events labels held the annual Stay Fresh event at Shimmy Beach Bar in Cape Town on Saturday the 13th September 2014.

Jameson, in conjunction with MUMM Champagne was on site to treat some of South Africa’s trendiest party goers with a premium nightclub experience.  Elevator’s events arm was on site to provide the slickest and most comfortable VIP experience for VIP guests.  As they say, photos speak a 1000 words, the promo girls, VIP setup and branding elements were all of the highest quality and appreciated by everyone who was in attendance.

We even we got to enjoy an ice cold Jameson on the rocks at the end of the day, it certainly was Triple Distilled, as the taste was twice as smooth!

Elevator got involved with the Small Business Growth Conference in 2013 to share our views on the industry and to see how we could enhance brands on a marketing front.

As a brand, Elevator has evolved over the years to become a below the line agency, which strives to remain trendy and unique in their offering. With a national footprint we were able to communicate to our consumers that we are quite comfortable to accommodate them with national campaigns involving production of elements, staffing and in some cases an event which marries all of these offerings.

Our main focus was to gain consumer insight and to learn how we could further differentiate ourselves from our competitors.


Elevator Marketing Communication is a very progressive brand with its main focus being below the line. The driving force behind most of the innovation within Elevator is most definitely Trevor Bernberg, he has been instrumental in the constant research & development of our brand.

Giving thought to the evolution and growth of the Elevator brand is part of the reason why Trevor has achieved great results within the industry.

As they say, "a leader becomes exceptional by design, not by accident. They are like master craftsmen, continually shaping and polishing their characters and personalities so that they evolve and grow into someone important and worthwhile". Our mastermind is one that is humble and prefers to put his team first, before he reaps rewards... we commend you!

Trevor Bernberg often finds himself out and about amongst our industry's thought leaders and trend setters, not by choice, but by lifestyle. 




2013 was a truly memorable year, with the Johannesburg International Motor Show 2013 again attracting the masses from all over the world.

Elevator was fortunate enough to be involved with the premium Lexus brand, which offers "sophistication, performance, safety and refinement - the ideals of contemparary luxury". This set build was always going to be one that would turn heads, with its sleek and classy design housed with the beautiful luxury Lexus vehicles obviously stealing the limelight, matched by the premium appeal of our stunning Lexus promotional models.

This event was a great success and we were able obtain the clients objectives. Our staff went through intensive screening processes before being selected by client to continue with a rigorous training, the result being, well educated premium promotional models becoming Lexus brand custodians.

On the 14th of July 2012, Cape Town celebrated the infamous French National Day “La fete Nationale” which means National celebration of the anniversary of Bastille Day at Green Point Stadium.

Our six stunning Elevator Bisquit Ambassadors were at the heart of the celebrations, assisting with handing out of Bisquit Summit cocktails to guests on arrival. Theses girls were trained on the specifics of the brand and led by Elevator’s very own Brand Champion, Olwethu Ralarala. 

Feel healthy. Look healthy and most importantly drink healthy. Two months down and the Elevator Sir Juice Ambassadors are still leaving Western Cape with a fresh taste in their mouths. If you walk down a juice isle in any Pick n Pay or Spar be prepared to get your taste buds tantalised by any of the 9 amazing flavours from Sir Juice. There’s definitely no favourite, but the Lemonade really packs a punch!

Every couple of Saturdays, mostly on cold and rainy winter mornings, our promoters get up early and put on their Mutual and Federal t-shirts and hats then head down to support the school boy rugby.

This year marked the 5th anniversary of the Fine Brandy Fusion held at the Sandton Convention Centre from the 27th to the 29th June 2012.  Previously known as The Fine Brandy Festival, the event under-went a major rebranding this year with Distell being one of the main exhibitors, this proved to be a great step in the right direction as the event drew a bigger crowd than ever before.  The festival gave South Africa’s major distillers of fine brandy a platform to showcase their creativity, skills and passion for the craft. This was done through highly imaginative boutique styled spaces where our Elevator staff played host and hostesses to hundreds of guests per night. 

Cell C Community Cup 2013

2nd September, 2014

The pool stages of the Cell C Community Cup will reach a nail-biting climax across the country on Saturday, with four places in the Easter Championships in George still up for grabs and a multitude of permutations meaning as many as 10 teams could still qualify.

Cell C Promotional Girls were all over the games, creating the 'gees' and of course providing customers an option to port to Cell C and receive ridiculous call rates of 99 cents a minute. Just one of Cell C's current offerings... Have you changed to the leading South African network yet? 

ABSA - Design Indaba 2013

2nd September, 2014

The Democratic Republic of Design (DRD), for Absa the Design Indaba 2013 was nothing less than a superb and fascinating way to connect all the aspects of the annual Design Indaba together. From the guest speakers, to the listeners – everyone was able to take part due to the Indaba's interactive format. Held at the CTICC, ABSA, being a headline sponsor invented an ingenious Ipad application, which credited participators in the event with a virtual currency, which increased with every tweet, Facebook post and “like” that they received when mentioning the DRD on any of the social networks. By mentioning the DRD, participators earned virtual currency that allowed them to purchase one of the amazing gifts on offer at the Indaba.  This was a reward for spreading the ‘virtual DRD love’.
