MTC gives away bakkie, other specials at Ongwediva Trade Fair

Issued by: MTC  
[Windhoek, Namibia, ]

It is a couple of months since the car crazy promotion, during which MTC gave away 30 Volvos to lucky customers. While those Volvos still generate some excitement in the minds of many customers, MTC has conjured up another offer, this time a brand new 2 litre Toyota bakkie to be won by one lucky customer during the Ongwediva Trade Fair.

The bakkie is up for the taking by any customer who buys prepaid broadband during the Ongwediva Trade Fair, which runs from 21-29 August 2009 in Ongwediva. Any customer who purchases prepaid or subscribe to post-paid broadband will be entered into a draw, which will be held during the final day of the trade fair. That means all the customers who buy the prepaid broadband will contend for the big prize.

Apart from the bakkie promotion, MTC has gone into overdrive for the Ongwediva Trade Fair as the company announced a range of specials for the duration of the show. People flocking to the trade fair will be spoilt for choice, as MTC has significantly reduced cost on almost all of its specials, including handsets and mobile broadband (prepaid and post-paid broadband).

Mr Miguel Geraldes, MTC's Managing Director, said over and above the Ongwediva Trade Fair being a marketing platform, the company wants to expose the people of Namibia, particularly those living in northern Namibia, to the different mobile products that can make their lives easier, be they businesspeople or students.

“At MTC, we are about access. We want to give 081 Nation the benefit of accessing our products and services at affordable costs. Our presence at the Ongwediva Trade Fair will serve again to expose our brand to our people and to open the opportunity to everyone to have access to our fantastic specials that we have on offer during the period of the trade fair,” said Geraldes.

Among the specials on offer are the W156 Motorola, LG Cookie as well as post and prepaid broadband (Internet).

The Motorola W156 currently retails for N$199, including a starter pack and N$81 airtime.

It will go retail for N$149 at the Trade Fair, including a starter pack and N$81 worth of airtime.
