On Tuesday 27th September, Bidvest Insurance hosted a Meet and Greet cocktail gathering with The Sharks Rugby team, ECIA, ONsurance and The Bernal Group. The evening was held in the legendary Presidential suite at Growthpoint Kings Park Stadium.

The event was created to bring all parties together to announce the car Insurance sponsorship of 17 Sharks Players and Management. If you ever happen to be strolling through Kings Park Stadium during a training session, you’ll see that most of the players’ cars are sporting the ‘Bidvest Insurance’ logo across their back window and as a Durban based company we are very proud to be getting behind our team, black and white, nothing else matters!

The evening included talks from Phillip Donnelly (Bidvest Insurance Marketing & Sales Executive) Gary Gold (the Sharks Director of Rugby) and Marius Meyer, of ECIA who has been instrumental in facilitating the relationship.

The evening was a great success with a number of Rugby legends in attendance such as Ian McIntosh, Dick Muir, John Allan and Stefan Terblanche. The formalities of the evening were closed off with a lucky draw with prizes been won by both guests and Sharks players. Take a look at the photos below to see the winners.
