Due to investor confidence, billions of rand has been invested in the Eastern Cape since 2008 on commercial and retail developments, as well as residential establishments and even golfing estates. This extensive development has also led to upgrades and expansion of roads all across the Eastern Cape and attracted both national and international interest. The province has also enjoyed an influx of tourists and entrepreneurs in recent months.
Running a successful business in any industry takes more than just simply selling a product or service. More often than not, it requires new dimensions in terms of partnerships. For this reason, Oasys Innovations has embarked on a new, joint venture with Frontier Events in Port Elizabeth.
"Proximity to customers allows for maximising service and delivery. We have not had a proper representation in the Eastern Cape and our association with Doug Pudney, Chief Executive of Frontier Events will hold joint benefits for both companies in that province," says Brian Kennedy, Chief Executive of Oasys Innovations. He adds, "Furthermore, we are also excited about this joint venture and how it can contribute to the economic and developmental wellbeing of the Eastern Cape, especially since the province is attracting the attention of more and more visitors for leisure and business, who can be seen as potential audiences to events hosted there throughout the year."
Like Oasys, Frontier Events supplies event infrastructure to any event imaginable. Pudney, one of the founders of Frontier Events says, "Oasys will supply Frontier Events with stock and international know-how to enable our company to represent the new joint initiative on a professional basis."
Both companies are positive about the venture and believe it will open up many new business avenues in the events environment. "The combined experience of Oasys Innovations and Frontier Events, as well as the staff complement at both companies will allow us to grow our regional business," concludes Kennedy.
