2016 was our first year as title sponsor and BEE partner of the KAP sani2c and it was a great experience for us in several respects.
It was fascinating to see how Glen and his team put together this world-class event through assembling and mobilising local people and resources and obtaining co-operation from multiple landowners and communities. It’s an incredible reflection of leadership and management.
One of the primary objectives of our involvement in sani2c was to expose KAP and its operating companies to a specific demographic representing potential customers, suppliers, business partners and investors. We learned a lot about people’s knowledge, understanding and perceptions, or lack thereof, of KAP, and we hope to improve this over time through the event.
The various projects established and driven by the event which are aimed at benefitting communities along the route in terms of employment opportunities, enterprise development and social upliftment was really pleasing to see. The dedication of Farmer Glen toward this aspect of the race is remarkable.
We feel that this has been a successful partnership to date, supported by an alignment in values and good brand association between KAP and sani2c. We hope that your experience of the event as riders and spectators is the same. We look forward to a successful 2017 ride for all trail, race and adventure participants. All of the preparations are in place for a fantastic event and we wish you all the very best for the three days.
