Love travel? Love marketing? Looking to experience something life-changingly cool? We’ve got something we’re sure you’ll love.

What is the Marketing Globetrotters Contest?

Viventura are offering the incredible opportunity to travel around South America with marketing legend, rap hero and all-round awesome human being, Mike King. You’ll traverse the jungles, shake to salsa, laze on the beaches and experience the hustle and bustle of some of the world’s most exciting cities. All this, and you’ll be right there alongside Mike King as he delivers expert talks on the very latest techniques and methods in the world of online marketing.

How did all this come about? Check out the video above to learn the story.

What’s Included?

The lucky winner of this competition will join the Marketing Globetrotters (Yngrid and Mike King a hip-hop superstar). All your flights, accommodation and excursions during the trip will be covered by us. All internal flights have been provided and organised by our partner – LATAM Airlines

Not only this, while discovering South America, the Marketing Globetrotter will have front row seats for the expert talks for up to a month. As a Marketing Globetrotter you will have the chance to feel and be involved in the fast-growing South American online marketing community!

You can choose when and where you’ll travel.

Want to explore the Andes and come face to face with local communities? Pack your bags ready for a trip to Peru and Chile from the 3rd of November to the 16th of November!

Love to party with locals and enjoy the beach life? Prepare yourself to travel to Brazil and Colombia from the 28th of November to the 8th of December!

How Do You Get Involved?

To be a part of this amazing project ain’t easy, but nothing worth it ever is.

We want you to publish something publicly about the project and also let us know why you should be the winner. We want to know how this trip could change your life in earth-shattering ways. You could use video, a blogpost, or…something even better – hey, you’re the genius, surprise us!

It doesn’t end there, of course. We also want you to create some noise around your piece that’s so loud – so deafening – that we can barely hear ourselves think.

Submissions will be judged by our expert panel of travel mavens and based on your ability to spread the word about your post. Get your work out there, get your friends and fans to spread your post on social media and make the world listen. Then come check our leaderboard periodically to see where you stand in terms of Facebook shares, Likes, retweets and visits.

The application process is open now and will stay open until October! To have the best chance, send your applications in and start sharing with the world ASAP.


The application process is open now! You should send the URL of your publication to [email protected] .

The deadline is the 20th of October, but to have the best chance send your applications in and start sharing with the world right away. Please note, the shortlist is STILL open. If you are not yet on the leaderboard it does NOT mean that you have no chance. Anybody can still win!

    This is exactly the experience I need as a musician and small business owner. Where do you submit at? You can google me and Middle Class Millionaire, I am a few pieces of knowledge away from really excelling, I just need that last bit.

  2. This sounds amazing! Are you still accepting participant entries?

I’ll definetley move to brasil in sept 2015, In a mainwhile if I have the opportunity to going there before and having another nice aprroche with those country, will be great!

    This sounds amazing, but as I am traveling currently, I want to make sure I understand the dates correctly: You can choose to travel from November 3-16th OR November 28-December 8th? I am returning from a trip on the 13th and before I make an application would love to know if I could actually attend :)

    Thank you for your time,
    Emma Doyle

  14. Just saw this post today. I’m from the Philippines and I’ve been wanting to visit Brazil. Hope its not yet late to join and i hope you’re accepting entries from the Philippines :)

  15. I SO wish that I were available in November, as I’d enter this in a heartbeat (even though I really don’t like these competitions). Unfortunately I’m booked on two other press trips. I’d love to work with you in the future and perhaps do a press trip and write for you. Email me and I’ll send you my full press kit. Thanks.

  16. Okay I just saw this am going to do a post/video for my entry. Will there be or is there already a chance for my travel, personal friends and my family to actually “vote” on a platform for my entry? I am a little confused at how the winner will be chosen. Can you please explain again? Thank you kindly for this opportunity and my blog post/video will be up in a few days.


  17. Samuel Guy says:

    Preparing my peace! :) Can’t wait to submit it. Good luck to everyone!

  18. Nice respond in return of this matter with genuine arguments and telling everything concerning that.

  19. Is it possible for an updated status and ranking to be published? Several new contestants have entered the fray this week and it would be nice to see if there has been any impact. Thanks you kindly!Mike
