Made In Africa

This year, the Mining Indaba returned for the first time since 2019, and it was a reunion like no other! With nearly 6,000 people attending, this event brings together major players in the mining industry and provides a space for them to network and develop ideas. We designed the private side event held at RMB Portside, aptly themed ‘Made in Africa’, where attendees shared local gin overlooking the beautiful Cape Town mountainscape.

Our role was to design the décor and food stations, for which we went with ‘Sophisticated African’, paying homage to classics such as serving food in mini-potjes and decorating with colourful woven baskets. For the food stations, we specially designed each one to show our culinary diversity, and spaced the stations around the event to encourage movement and flow around the event.

Catering that celebrates all the different facets of South African cuisine
The rhythms of Africa – the energetic drummers in their colourful outfits are a real favourite of international guests.

A first for us was the mysterious ‘Diamond Surprise’ – where each glass of champagne had the chance to contain a real diamond! Scroll to the last pictures to see the testing booth and one of the winners, a night to remember for sure!
