Drawing on eight years of experience in creating bespoke wedding celebrations and honeymoons, Event Concepts is the latest addition to the Concepts family, and will embody the same values as its older siblings, Wedding Concepts and Travel Concepts. The umbrella brand is the brainchild of founders Richard and Christina Holt. The launch of Event Concepts will see this Cape Town based company expand into Gauteng and Southern Africa, a move which will no doubt entrench their position as the preferred port of call for luxurious lifestyle occasions across the board.

Spotting a gap for A-list events, the Event Concepts team has applied the brand’s trademark ‘in-pursuit-of-perfection’ policy to their events and with a string of high-end clients already on their books, it’s clear they’re making waves in this competitive industry. “While we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of ‘what’s hot’, we’re not faddish and the same expectations of excellence apply regardless of the project – whether it’s a lavish wedding, a large incentive or a glamorous corporate event ranging from 20 to 2000 guests”, says Christina Holt, founder and group managing director.

While some event companies are known for their tried and tested formulas, the Event Concepts team ensures every single function is absolutely tailor made, manifesting unrivalled levels of design and innovation ingenuity in the careful consideration of each client’s needs. Dedicated teams will oversee the entire budget management process, source speciality suppliers, create detailed décor and entertainment briefs, handle all food and beverage requirements, and manage all technical aspects around guest registration and RSVP’s. The Events Concepts team brings a ‘can do’ attitude to their bespoke events without ever losing the essential focus on sophistication and elegance. Likewise with Travel Concepts, the focus is on sharing their hand picked venues, hotels and destinations with their clientèle, ensuring their sojourns and stays are always a success.

‘We know that a certain calibre of client expects nothing but excellence and having entertained close to 40 000 people at the weddings we’ve coordinated over the past eight years, we feel confident that we can provide that and so much more”, says Group CEO Richard Holt, adding “together with our expert staff, we are geared to handle absolutely every expectation, providing an unforgettable event for the host”.
