2013 Bayimba International Festival in partnership with Nile Breweries Ltd

This year 2013 promises to be a very unique one for us. We are delighted to announce that we have added Nile Breweries Ltd under (SABmiller flagship) unto our ever growing list of supporters. Nile breweries under the Brand name Club beer has pledged to sponsor the technical budget for this year’s festival. We are very grateful towards Nile breweries Ltd for this wonderful gesture.

Nile Breweries Ltd is the No. 1 provider of locally produced beer in Uganda. Nile Breweries is committed to superior marketing and brand building. The company is committed to developing local brands with growth potential, by developing new brands, and by introducing international brands into local markets – it is these values that we find similar to the Bayimba model of achieving our goals and the reason Bayimba and Nile Breweries have chosen to work together.

While Nile breweries are the number one producer of local beers in Uganda, Bayimba International Festival is the number one arts festival in Uganda while it is ranked among the top ten festivals in Africa. We believe that this new partnership will be mutually beneficial to both brands in terms of not only tapping into new audiences but also in terms of strategic brand positioning.
