Nairobi, 02 March 2016: Gong Communications Kenya has won The Asian Weekly Achiever’s Award 2016 for Best Product/Brand Launch for the official opening launch of mixed use development Garden City in Nairobi.

The launch of Garden City culminated in a glittering evening event for over 700 dignitaries on 8th September 2015 at Garden City Mall, with the governor of Nairobi, Dr. Evans Kidero, as the guest of honour. After achieving widespread media coverage the event was nominated by the magazine and selected by the public as the winner for the product/brand launch category, ahead of four other nominees including Samsung and Tata Motors.

Gong Kenya has managed the branding and marketing of Garden City since ground breaking of the project in 2013, and worked in partnership with BrightBlack Events to create September’s grand opening event, including an extensive range of entertainment from live music, dancers, performance artists and models who mingled with guests, to a choreographed light show projected onto the mall’s facade.

Gong Kenya’s managing director, Beverly Amira said: “The Achiever’s Award recognises individuals, organisations and companies that have excelled in their areas of operation and positively impacted the community so this is a great win for Gong and I’d like to thank The Asian Weekly for nominating us. I’d also like to say a big thank you to Crista Mehta and her BrightBlack team for their time and dedication, working tirelessly with us to make sure the event was second to none. We’re looking forward to the next event and a busy and successful 2016 for Gong Communications Kenya!”
