EnOv8 Event Management organises activations for Ray-Ban across SA

In 2014 we were contracted by Ray-Ban to implement activations to promote and increase sales of their Polarized lenses. We activated in three of South Africa’s biggest cities, namely Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. Visitors to Canal Walk, Gateway and Sandton City had the chance to experience the benefits of Polarized lenses and see for themselves how the glasses cut the glare in outdoor and driving situations.

We created an outdoor experience inside the malls and immersed visitors in a complete experience.

Sampling the Ray-Ban product

Testing the quality and benefits of Polarized lenses
– Test out the benefits of Polarized lenses by sitting inside the Jeep and looking at a bright light reflecting off the bonnet to represent the glare created by the sun.
– Once visitors put the Polarized sunglasses on, they could see how the Ray-Bans eliminated the glare with zero strain on their eyes and better clarity.

“The activation ran smoothly – as always by the EnOv8 team – and became part of the larger Ray-Ban Polarized campaign that carried through at store level towards the end of 2013. Ray-Ban Polarized replenishment orders post the campaign period were very strong for our local market and extremely positive within international standards,” says Thera van’t Hof, Brand Manager: Ray-Ban, Vogue Eyewear and Persol.
