Roadshow delights architects

by Tania Wannenburg

So much fun: architects across Pretoria were spoiled with Artisan Lollies during the WALLS&ROOFS in Africa and FLOORS in Africa Architectural Roadshow.

This year’s Architect Roadshow in the Pretoria environs (the other two will be held in JHB and CT respectively) saw an “Artisan Lolly” mini-bus visit eight architectural firms as well as the PIA. Each employee was greeted with a decadent array of ice-cream lolly options, which could be dipped into chocolate or caramel sauce and covered in almond flakes or crushed peanuts.

In its third year, the roadshow once again illustrated to the architects that Media in Africa cares about them, their work, their practices and their wellbeing.

“We followed on the very successful events we had the past two years and really out did ourselves, combining a very cool experience with informal information sharing,” says Marlene van Rooyen, editor of Walls & Roofs Magazine. “Our sponsors also had the opportunity to put their brand and marketing collateral in front of the architect and be part of bringing them a fun experience.”
The idea behind this roadshow is for brands to treat architects to a fun-filled morning and design inspiration. “Architectural professionals these days are under tremendous time pressures and stress to perform,” Marlene highlights. “This is why we wanted to bring some fun and joy to their day and we achieved just that.”

Media in Africa would like to thank our sponsors, without whom this day would not be possible: Rigifoam, Safintra, FloorworX, Isoboard, Granric Insulation, Van Dyck, Marley Building Systems, Dezzo Roofing and Dekton.
