If you are planning a trip to Cape Town always consider the events calendar as you might be lucky enough to attend one of the Global Parties, Gay Pride March or Cape Town Carnivals. Have fun watching other people having fun!
While in Cape Town I had the pleasure to work and form partnerships with a couple of event planners and business – leisure entrepreneurs.
- One of them was my good friend Jacqui. Jacqui is responsible to put your brand right on top of the Cape Town market. So, if you want to be seen, known or network exposure, start by advertising your brand at one of her Yacht Parties. In the luxury world is all about the strategy of developing relationships through friendship and business. Offering open network exposure and corporate network exposure, the catamaran sails from V&A Waterfront along the coast right to Clifton 4th Beach usually on a Sunday or anytime you wish.
- Other good friend is Jason, the Cape Corporate Harley Davidson exposure ride. Jason can organize easy 100 bikes, all branded for a corporate ride along Camps Bay on sunset, Townships, City Center, Wine Farms, antique cars and so on. The best part is that Jason have the experience of working with most of the VIP’s that visited Cape Town so far. Together we can also offer glamorous camping in the African bush, wedding drop off or surprise birthday parties. The choice is yours!
Another big event that I had the chance to join was #Ultra South Africa 2016. One of the world’s biggest Electronic Dance Music jams, heads back to the Mother City in 2016! Glow-sticks? Check. Dancing shoes? Check. World-class DJ’s and producers? Check. The Mother City welcomes back the 2016 Ultra Music Festival, one of the globe’s craziest electronic dance music (EDM) throw-down, to the West Coast Ostrich Ranch along the N7 on Saturday, 27 February and Sunday, 28 February 2016. sounds quite crazy I could say. Was electric, counting the fact that was my first music festival, I was not that highly impressed. Having VVIP tickets did not helped much once you get to the entrance. The whole road from the highway to the Ostrich Farm was full of cars, queuing for a good hour to get to the VVIP section. To be honest, was great, we have been treated well once we got in the good area, I could say that was once in a lifetime event, not exactly my cup of tea :), on the way back I had to literally walk all the way to the road in order to find my taxi, as taxis were not allowed in the VIP parking area. Not nice, right? Anyway performance was high level, considering the venue issues.
The last but not at least event that I had the honor to participate was #capetownpride.
Cape Town Gay Pride made it’s way into town for the 13th time this year. Celebrating cultural diversity and raising awareness for LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex) issues in South Africa and across the Globe. Was actually the second time participating, and once again Cape Town traffic has been closed for few hours because of us! All the respect for the authorities which has been very efficient! Good job boys! 😉
I had the most amazing time working and spending time with all of you, and I can only say that I have lived a fairy-tale being back in Cape Town. I have fall in love with this city for the second time! Main thought when I traveled down-there was to say good-bye to that time of my life, but that will be impossible, as South Africa will always be a part of me!
Tears started running when my friends showed up at the airport and screaming ‘Welcome back home darling’ :).
As they say: you will never be completely home again… because part of your heart will always be elsewhere! That’s the price you pay for loving and knowing people in more than one place! The Universe already reworded me with a big family, I can only be thankful for it.
Until next time Cape Town! Yours always,
