Virseker backs Pendoring all the way
Dawid Botha, Virseker Marketing Manager
Virseker’s passion for Afrikaans, however, goes much further than only insurance:
Stage productions, such as Afrikaans is Groot, where the best Afrikaans music is showcased and celebrated annually lure thousands of fans to sold-out shows.
The Virseker Trust, to which a portion of policyholders’ premiums is allocated, focuses on the promotion of Afrikaans education and has to date, among other things, invested more than R10 million in the founding of the brand-new Afrikaans university, Akademia, numerous study bursaries for academically deserving students, the Rapport Education Trust and the development of Afrikaans study applications.
In addition, Virseker recently also started investing in Afrikaans sports development by coming on board as the main sponsor of the Virseker Beker, previously known as the Beeld Trophy.
According to Dawid Botha, spokesperson for Virseker, Pendoring is a logical partner for the insurer: “For over two decades Pendoring has provided a first-class platform for the celebration of excellence in South African advertising, a substantial portion of which is devoted to the promotion of innovation and creativity in Afrikaans advertising, which eventually is framed in the Afrikaans media showcase. For us, it is an immense honour and privilege to back the entire Pendoring project, as well as to sponsor the category, 'Original Afrikaans’."
This category is open to all advertising mediums and focuses exclusively on any advertisement that has originally been conceptualised and created in Afrikaans.
Franette Klerck, Pendoring GM, adds that Pendoring enjoys strong sponsorship support precisely because the awards acknowledge and promote the importance and value mother-tongue advertising.
“Successful brands like Virseker are well aware that the best way to reach its target market and to create an emotional bond and connection with consumers is to communicate with them in the language that they speak and understand. The language of their hearts,” she emphasises.
