The role of the Communication, Marketing and Events (CME) Department is to manage the overall reputation of the City of Tshwane, both in South Africa and globally, thereby enhancing the City’s brand as an investment and tourism destination. The CME Department endeavours at all times to partner with relevant internal and external stakeholders to tell the City’s success stories and to showcase its excellence as the capital city of South Africa. This is achieved through utilising effective platforms for communication, marketing, public relations, events, and tourism.
This department is responsible for ensuring that the City’s stakeholders buy into its vision as expressed in the recently launched Tshwane 2055 strategy. With this ambitious but attainable vision, a number of strategic projects are currently being implemented as key projects that will change the game altogether for the City and its residents. CME therefore has to ensure proper profiling of these strategic projects through events, communication and marketing interventions, thereby contributing to the vision of becoming the best-run municipality in the country, a technologically savvy city and, most importantly, a great city in which to work, live, invest, visit and play – a city of choice.
