Unlocking the Festive Calendar
Crafting Irresistible Campaigns for Festive Moments

While many festivals have religious roots, their celebrations transcend belief to become social events that bring families
together for fun, food and friendship. On these occasions, the shopping basket expands, shoppers trade up and home
chefs unleash their culinary flair, whilst we infuse some za:media magic into these festive times to create campaigns that
reach further and resonate actively with the target audience to create memorable experiences at every turn

Promotion in and around community places of worship for
the purpose of celebrations.

Either through partnerships with religious organizations such as churches, mosques, or temples at a local level to promote a product or through geo-targeted promotional activations in strategically placed locations adjacent to the venue to reach the desired target group.

There are also numerous religious events, such as the Muslim Annual Gathering in the South of France or Jalsa Salana (Germany and UK), which bring together thousands of people every year. These provide opportunities for sponsorship, brand activation and sampling on a large scale.

Many Mosques are open to brand promotions that enhance the occasion and are implemented in a culturally sensitive way around important Muslim holidays, such as Ramadan. za:media has an outstanding record of sponsoring e.g. Iftar Dinners, Eid Events and Friday Prayers.

za:media as event sponsor and participant (we are there with a booth and tailored animation), benefits from extra visibility before, during and after a number of these events to put the agency in prime position to attract customers and better showcase our clients‘ brands.
