Nestled quietly at the base of the African continent, pristinely positioned between the ocean and the mountain, is one of the greatest cities on the planet.
With its vast array of natural beauty and its cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures, Cape Town has become one of the premier tourist destinations in the world.
In addition to its incredible natural beauty, the Mother City also boasts a cultural history spanning more than 300 years. It is a great place to study, work and do business, with its sound infrastructure across all sectors, commitment to entrepreneurial expansion and visible evidence of investment in the world-class CBD.
The city was voted the World Design Capital in 2014, and has been nominated for the Ultimate Sports City award on several occasions. The City successfully hosted a number of 2010 FIFA World Cup matches at it’s majestic Green Point Stadium, and has recently won the bid to host the South African leg of the HSBC World Sevens Series.
The Cape Town International Convention Centre is comparable with any equivalent facility across the globe, and with its collection of delightful culinary options dotted all across the peninsula, there is a taste to suit every palette.
It’s a collection of ingredients that the City of Cape Town, under the astute leadership of the Honourable Mayor Patricia de Lille, hopes to combine in order to continue the city’s upward trajectory. One of their objectives in this endeavour is to turn the Mother City into a premier destination for both domestic and global events – world class events, in a world class city.
It is in this light that the City of Cape Town has teamed up with UniMedia Pro and Sun International to host the launch of Sally Little’s autobiography, “Capturing the Fire”, at the regal Table Bay Hotel at the V&A Waterfront.
When Unimedia Pro needed to decide upon a venue to host the launch of the book, Cape Town instantly ticked all the boxes – and what better place for such a prestigious event than Sun International’s iconic Table Bay Hotel.
Offering the ultimate in 5-star luxury hotel accommodation in Cape Town and considered to be the best address in the City, the Table Bay was opened in May 1997 by Nelson Mandela and continues to set its own standards in international service, cuisine and luxury.
Situated on the historic Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, The Table Bay hotel is perfectly positioned against the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean.
This picturesque location will provide the setting for one of the most important moments in women’s golf in South Africa, as one of the sports unsung heroines is recognised for her vital contribution.
“Capturing the Fire – The Sally Little Story”, commissioned on behalf of Sally by Unimedia Pro, is set to change the face of women’s golf in this country by bringing the sport into the limelight, and championing it’s advancement into the national sporting consciousness.
It is only fitting then that such an iconic event take place at such an iconic venue, in such an iconic city.
