Mercedes-Benz Trucks Southern Africa made history not too long ago, when they hosted the media at a virtual launch event, to showcase the new Actros and Arocs range.  Fast forward to the 29th of July 2020, they pulled it off once again.  This time they gave Customers, Dealers and DTBSA Staff an opportunity to be a part of the excitement.

Three hundred and Nineteen guests tuned in for the momentous 1-hour special hosted by Michael Dietz; Chief Executive Officer and Maretha Gerber; Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Daimler Trucks & Buses Southern Africa, as they dynamically displayed the ground breaking innovative features on the Actros and Arocs range. “It is with great pride that we get to officially introduce these phenomenal trucks to our valued customers, dealers and employees, even more so on a cutting edge digital platform such as this”, said Michael Dietz

The session allowed for interactive and real-time engagement, sporting platform interactions such as, Q&A, Applause and Chat capabilities. Reviews received from the survey that was conducted, conveyed the attendees’ satisfaction at an overall 4.7 out of 5. This is what some of the attendees had to say:
