CHICAGO, April 4, 2013

CHICAGO, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Acquity Group (NYSE AMEX:  AQ), a
leading Brand eCommerce® and digital marketing company, announces the
Honorable Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Morgan Richard Tsvangirai, visited
Acquity Group's Chicago headquarters today, Thursday, April 4, as part of the
annual Zimbabwe Trade and Cultural Expo in Chicago.

During his visit, Tsvangirai met with Acquity Group's CEO and co-founder,
Chris Dalton, along with other executive leadership, to discuss the importance
of technology and social media in the growth of Zimbabwe, its positive impact
on government transparency, and the importance of its application for
entrepreneurial development. The exchange included ideas on leveraging
technology to better the lives of the people and to empower outreach programs
that will create transparency between government and the people.

Africa is the second largest mobile market in the world, with more than 738
mobile connections in 2012. Trends show Africa is poised for quick adoption of
mobile technology in all areas of life, including banking, education,
political elections, health programs and most importantly, the search for
clean water, as publicized by Water.org co-founder Matt Damon.

"It was a wonderful opportunity to meet with the Honorable Prime Minister and
explore the possibilities of mobile, social and technological progress in
Zimbabwe," said Chris Dalton, CEO of Acquity Group. "Mobile and social
technology has the power to raise cross-continental awareness about pressing
issues. They have the potential to provide an open forum for sharing
information, organizing communities and fostering change and economic progress
in Africa."

Acquity Group's digital and technology expertise in supporting many of the
world's largest brands served as the foundation for conversations. In fact,
this is the second time the Honorable Prime Minister visited Acquity Group as
part of the Expo. In 2011, the conversation focused on entrepreneurial
development and the investment climate in Zimbabwe and other emerging markets
in the African region.

The visit took place at Acquity Group's Chicago headquarters, located in the
Ogilvie Transportation Center. Other companies the Honorable Prime Minister
visited include Capri Capital, Luster Products, Inc., Loop Capital and
EbonyJet Magazine.
