Home Business Team Namibia scoops award at kiddies expo

WINDHOEK – Team Namibia won the “Most Creative Stand” award at the Bank Windhoek Kidz Funfair and Family Expo, held at the SKW sports grounds over the weekend.

The exhibition enabled children to interact with Namibian products and services that can be consumed on a daily basis. Activities were designed to engage children on all levels ranging from creativity and physical activity to concentration and nutrition.

Some of the arts and crafts activities at the expo were designed to spark creativity to allow children to unleash the inner artist. Children also had the opportunity to decorate Team Namibia’s new logo and learn what it stands for in the process.

In the food department Celia Leibbrandt and Elzet Otto, registered dieticians from Thiele & Partners, shared ideas for healthy Namibian lunchboxes while parents enjoyed a complimentary Vigo drink in the lounge area. All the ingredients for the lunchboxes consisted of truly Namibian products, and were sponsored by Woermann Brock Supermarkets.

Meanwhile ‘techno junkies’ loved playing the Team Namibia Logo Quiz, developed by InTouch Interactive Marketing with the internet connection sponsored by TN Mobile. The aim of the game was to guess the Team Namibia brands among a range of logos belonging to famous brands. The computer game is based on the highly addictive “Logo Quiz” app and will soon be available on the Team Namibia website.

Team Namibia offered a range of traditional games with a Namibian twist, including a sack race in Top Score bags, candy floss made with Sugar King and “fishing” for Team Namibia member logos.

All prizes handed out at the Team Namibia stand were sponsored by Team Namibia members, including Wordweaver Publishing, Namib Mills, Closwa Biltong, Namibia Quality Beverages and Just Water.

Lizette Foot, General Manager of Team Namibia commented: “We are delighted about our award for ‘Most Creative Stand’ and the fact that our exhibition generated much enthusiasm for Namibian products and services among visitors.  It was a wonderful opportunity to integrate our members’ offerings under one roof, and educate children on why it is beneficial for our economy to support local products and services.”
