Cape Town’s thriving tourism industry was invited to follow the enchanted path to A New World, an incredible event in acknowledgement of fantastic industry partners, held at the Aquarium on 28 July 2017. Jointly hosted by The Diamond Works, NAC Helicopters Cape Town and the Two Oceans Aquarium this event was an absolutely captivating evening and indeed, perhaps the industry event of the year.
Upon entering the Aquarium, guests were greeted by a friendly team of “air hostesses”, checking tickets and issuing “New World Passports”.
With baggage checked, partygoers headed for the “Departure Lounge”. Intricately crafted cocktails, alluring mermen, spot prizes and incredible quests started the evening off here.
NAC Helicopters took charge of this leg of the journey into the New World, bringing a new level of elegance to our Skretting Indian Ocean Gallery. Plenty of fun was on hand for the guests to enjoy – amazing face paint for that new world-look and a paper jet competition with incredible prizes.
Guests were provided with scrumptious meal packs, before departing to the New World in the Predator Exhibit. The New World was bathed in iridiscent purple hues and guests danced below gorgeous hanging jellies.
Exotic entertainment was abundant. Marvellous belly dancers set the tone of the night in front of the enthralled crowd – partygoers and ragged-tooth sharks alike. A photo booth with wacky and wonderful props was available to all to make this night's memories last a lifetime.
The final destination of the New World adventure was party-central at the I&J Oceans Exhibit. Here Liezel van der Westhuizen, our gorgeous MC for the evening thanked the organisers, presented the night's prizes and proposed the name “Jimi Hendrix” for our giant guitarfish.
After Liezel’s delightful address, it was time to turn up the party. With beats provided by awesome DJs and wonderful guests to keep the party spirits high, the party of the century progressed into the early hours of the morning.
