Ugandan industry bodies come together for a day of fun and networking
By our News Team | 2023
Meet & Greet Fun Day filled with an abundance of networking opportunities, exhilarating games, and an emphasis on wellbeing and fun.
All work and no play is not good for the soul! With this in mind, the Uganda Marketers Society (UMS) recently orchestrated a ground-breaking and fun-filled event that brought together three prominent industry bodies: the UMS, the Public Relations Association of Uganda, and the Uganda Advertising Association.
Under the bright Kampala skies, members from all three associations came together to participate in an array of exciting activities that catered to diverse interests.

The Meet & Greet Fun Day was filled with an abundance of networking opportunities, exhilarating games, and an overall emphasis on wellbeing and fun.
“From competitive football matches and invigorating aerobics sessions to intense tug-of-war battles and speedy sack races, the spirit of healthy competition and solidarity was alive and thriving,” the UMS says in a media statement.
“Additionally, participants enjoyed engaging in mind-stimulating quizzes, board games like puzzles, and even indulged in the timeless classic of ‘truth or dare’.”
Leadership teams join in the fun
Lending their support and actively participating in the event were leadership figures from the three associations: Tina Wamala, representing the Public Relations Association of Uganda; Frank Muthusi from the Uganda Advertising Association; and David Balikuddembe from the Uganda Marketers Society.
They showcased true leadership qualities and set a positive example for everyone in attendance.
Away from the thrill of the sometimes-intense competition, attendees were able to engage in discussions, exchange ideas, and forge new friendships – ultimately strengthening the bonds within the marketing, public relations and advertising community.
“The Meet & Greet Fun Day served as a reminder that fostering a sense of community and promoting holistic wellbeing are essential for professionals in these industries,” the UMS says.
“The Uganda Marketers Society, alongside the Public Relations Association of Uganda and the Uganda Advertising Association, created an event that blended business and pleasure, leaving participants energised, inspired and more connected than ever before.”
