“We are immensely proud to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary and we are even more excited for what’s in store for the future of Proviz. We feel like we have been an integral part of so many commuter’s lives, and we feel our new campaign reflects our vision for the future,” said Anthony Langly-Smith, co-founder of Proviz.

Awards

The British Small Business Awards celebrates the leaders in the small business community. This year Proviz Sports were shortlisted in the Micro Business of the Year category. The Micro Business of the Year category is awarded to a company of 2-9 people that has demonstrated strong revenue growth and a product or service of a quality that stands above competitors. The identifying of and capitalising on scale opportunities is also be noted by the judges.

The Amazon Growing Business Awards were created by Real Business, in partnership with the CBI, in 1998. Twenty years on and the awards are the most established and respected celebration of SME and entrepreneurial success in the UK. Proviz Sports were shortlisted in the Micro Business of the Year category.

Celebrating anniversary

This year, Proviz Sports is celebrating its 10th anniversary. To celebrate this epic milestone, the brand is re-launching its website across the UK, the US, Australia and Germany. This will help support the introduction of new innovative products to its range and launching a new brand campaign called Defy The Darkness, the company explains.

The campaign will be a digitally led activation and will be supported by a social media campaign. The aim of the initiative is to give customers the confidence to carry on with outdoor activities in darkness by wearing products that will stand out and be seen by wearing high-end enhanced visibility items.

Through the campaign, Proviz aims to connect with its core audience of runner’s, cyclists, outdoor enthusiasts and commuters by asking them to submit their own #DefyTheDarkness images to the Proviz Instagram page @ProvizSports, for a chance to be featured and to join the movement.

Reflect360 collection

Among the high-quality products available from Proviz, the Reflect360 collection is the most popular, with its striking design. Made from 100% reflective material, its neutral colour scheme in daylight transforms into highly reflective clothing at night.

All of Proviz’s products are designed to offer comfortable and practical clothing to riders, runners and outdoor enthusiasts that aim to keep them seen and safe. This makes it the ideal attire for those commuting to and from work throughout winter, enabling them to defy the darkness.
