A "whole" in one!

Our goal is to provide clients with strategies to promote their sport or sport events or even something other than sport, through sport. We also engage well known athletes to promote various sports production and events. We work with sporting clubs, federations, apparel/equipment manufacturers, media and sponsors involved in sport to deliver everything from golf days to corporate sporting events.

The fabric of Societies!

A mutual collaboration between Zinto and BSK Marketing has led to the creation of a fully-fledged Stokvel activation agency. BZ gives you access to this highly lucrative, yet often difficult-to-access market, in the form of Stokvel and Society activations, including access to Moria during Easter and December.

Dance builds much more than muscle!

It builds self-confidence, self–worth, self–respect and self–discipline. It also builds coordination, core strength and life-long friendships. Zinto now offers a fully–fledged dance academy called Urban Moves Dance and Art. Its aim is to get kids moving and teach them skills using dance and the arts as a platform. Programmes on offer will include holiday sessions, engagement opportunities for the parents and much more.
