The Western Cape is a place of unraveled beauty - It’s six regions - Cape Town, Cape West Coast, Cape Winelands, Cape Karoo, Cape Overberg and the Garden Route and Klein Karoo – provides a fabulous mix of nature and adventure, food and wine, culture and heritage and so much more.
Known as the Cape of Great Events; from world-class marathons to global music festivals, Cape Town and the Western Cape is a destination renowned for its ability to host some of the best events. Globally, the events sector finds itself in an unprecedented climate with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the cancellation and postponing of well-planned and fully subscribed leisure and sporting events resulting in loss of revenue and jobs.
This webinar reflects on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the events sector, as well as the adapting mechanism used by event organisers to save the image and status of their event.
