Newlands, Cape Town – Treble Group, the official event managers of the Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk, is once again proud to stage KwaZulu-Natal’s most walked and talked-about event on Sunday, 21 May 2017. With over 17 years of experience in creation and management of innovative, world-class events, we have implemented our unique strategy to ensure that we deliver even more than previous years.
This year we have decided to go green and paperless by facilitating a completely online entry system. Managed exclusively by Treble in-house, the new system has participants registering on the official event website in just a few swift and easy clicks. The system is giving all managing stakeholders an on-demand, quick and accurate snapshot of who to expect on race day.
We are continuing to deliver the event communications solution, by managing the event’s social media platforms, website and email channels. We have issued a day-to-day communications plan to cover all social media works for the Big Walk. Treble has expanded their communications portfolio by managing the event contact centre, responsible for assisting with online registration and event queries made by the 30,000 participants, via email and phone.
Preparations have already begun for activating the event in Durban, from branding and staging a distinct walking experience to setting up an engaging fan park at the finish area, including corporate hospitality and live staged events. We will also be manging the three-day race pack collection at Moses Mabhida Stadium, which has moved to the plaza this year, to embrace the warm Durban sun!
Treble is excited to be a part of presenting this massive event and we look forward to seeing the Durban community come together and walk with their Sole Mates.
