Antswork events started in Sri Lanka in 2006 as an event manager, and since has grown to be one of the 3 largest event management companies in the country. Over the years, Antswork has had the opportunity to mount events for the most important domestic and international clients in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka, Pearl of the Indian Ocean
The island nation of Sri Lanka, located just off the southeastern coast of India, is may not be well known to many people in the West, but it is one of the most fascinating places in the world. Known as Ceylon until 1972, its strategic geographic location in the Indian Ocean has placed Sri Lanka in the center of many of the major conflicts in world history. From the time of the Silk Road in antiquity to World War II and the British occupation of India, Sri Lanka has been in the middle of it all, often contested over by warring parties.
But today, Sri Lanka is independent, and with independence has come the opportunity to develop and diversify as an economy. Sri Lanka is perhaps best known as an island surrounded by pristine beaches with a tropical forest interior, and as such, a bustling resort industry makes its home there. National Geographic has called Sri Lanka’s beaches the best in the world. More than just sun and sand bring in tourists. With a rich and diverse cultural history that spans hundreds of thousands of years, many temples and relics of human activity—including the Avukana Buddha Statue and the “eighth wonder of the world” Sigiriya rock fortress—bring people from all over the world to experience them. An incredible amount of both plant and animal life, including the Sri Lankan Leopard and plentiful Elephant population, are tourism draws as well.
Sri Lanka’s economy is developing outside of tourism, too, and this development matters a lot to the people who make their homes there. Its dynamic economy and well educated workforce has produced an impressive number of BID Quality Award winners such as Avasta Resort & Spa, Infinity Centre for Higher Learning, Japan Eagle Importers, Scissors Salon, Oviklo International, and Lanka Tours. This year, Antswork Limited has been added to this prestigious list, having been selected to receive the BID Quality Crown Award for 2015.
Listening to Clients and Meeting their Neets
As Antswork’s business grew, the company expanded its offerings, providing value added services in other areas related to promotion, marketing and branding. Today, clients can also choice audiovisual production, above the line and below the line marketing, and other services. Marketing is a creative business, and management has leveraged the creativity of its people to make product and service offerings that are innovative and quality driven. The result is a company that has become a one stop solution for companies looking to increase market penetration, develop brand identity, and stage events and promotions that reflect well on their businesses.
In fact, the company expresses its goals explicitly in its Value Statement: “Our Vision is to become the most innovative versatile and sought after service providing agency in Sri Lanka, setting new standards in creativity and execution whilst constantly raising the bar for higher achievements and growth of the company.” The BID Committee places value on companies that state their goals explicitly, as it increases accountability within the organization and promotes unity of purpose and action. © 2015 JazaM / RaMen.
The variety of events that Antswork has staged is impressive, including dealer conventions, music shows, sales conventions, award ceremonies, fashion shows, press events, and others. The company spends a significant amount of time with clients understanding their particular needs and tastes before reaching out to talent agencies and artists to provide solutions that are consistent with the client’s vision. The fact that the have staged some events in multiple years and have a solid list of repeat clients says a lot about the quality that Antswork delivers.
Antswork AV Creations began by providing AV support for the event management business, but soon began operating as an independent entity. The group not creates Motivational AV’s, Corporate Profiles and Television Commercials, and has the technical capability to work in a broad array of AV solutions from scripting to 3D animation, filming and editing of any type of AV creation.
Antswork BTL Solutions creates BTL communications, promotional campaigns and activities of many kinds, and can count on the creative talent and business experience that has made the rest of the company a success. Together, these branches of the company allow clients to find solutions in one place and take advantage of the continuity available only when all of these services are managed under one roof.
Because of its commitment to continuous quality improvement, customer service, and the creative expansion of its offerings in a short time, Antswork Limited has been selected to receive the BID Quality Crown Award for 2015 at the convention in London.
