FIA Awards – 28 June 2018 – Senses



Excitement is at fever pitch as the insurance industry gears up for the annual FIA awards. This year the theme of the awards function is “Senses” and invitees can expect to have sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing “activated” on the night. 

Says Lizelle van der Merwe, CEO of the FIA: “The FIA awards are a celebration of intermediaries and the value they add to the consumers and product suppliers. With our survey partner Ask Afrika, we have worked hard in achieving a commendable response rate. I wish to thank all our members that participated in the survey for their valued contribution.”

The FIA 2018 platinum partners – Santam, Hollard, Bidvest Insurance, Global Choices, ITOO, Lombard Partners & SASRIA, are pulling out all the stops to add value to intermediaries and industry guests. Says Rikus Kok, co-event organisor: “I am delighted at the creativity and passion our sponsors have shown in making this event special for everyone attending the event.”

The Business Day will this year once again publish a survey showcasing the value of intermediated advice and services to South African consumers. Says Carel Nolte from CN&CO – the FIA’s communications partner: “The Business Day have been supplied with a list of industry players who have been listed as finalists in the survey. We will be releasing a list of the top three finalists per category a week before the event and winners will only be announced on the night of the awards.” 

Any company who wants to advertise in the Business Day survey edition can contact cris@ad-link.co.za. Says Nolte: “The FIA is supportive of all players taking part in this editorially strong survey – not just “finalist” or “winners” as has been the case in the past. We want to ensure that advertising support is not linked to performance in the results. With the excellent editorial work done buy the Business Day team, we are extremely impressed by the support shown to date.” 

More details on the awards will be sent to those who have already booked their seat. These include information on a trip to be won to Club Med sponsored by new kid on the block Elite. Hint: get your best red carpet outfit ready! A few places remain and bookings can be made with emi@cnandco.com.
