Mid-winter in South Africa is nothing to be scared of, and apart from the almost scheduled 'black' South Easters in the Cape and the occasional flood-like down pours in Durban, there is really nothing that a jacket, scarf and umbrella can't remedy. With that said, Cape Town does tend to go into hibernation mode when it comes to events in the winter months. It does seem that Cape Town might needs a larger audience in order to perform at her whimsical peak. Jhb and Durban are not that picky. Our...
After 39 years, the J&B Met has had its midlife crisis! Its thrown in the towel, packed its bags, bought a one way ticket to the Bahamas and is having none of the 'work till the last breath' dilemma. Its bitter-sweet really, as it was a bit of an institution. You knew that by the time the J&B Met hit the headlines, you were well and truly back from your Christmas holiday and knee-deep in the new year, working furiously against deadlines and budgets, while dealing with the European...

Avenue is our sister company - a beautiful, brand spanking new Conferencing and Event Venue next to the Two Oceans Aquarium. What is even more exciting is that Avenue has its very own Private Viewing Panel into a 1,5 Million Liter Predator Tank! The tank will be ready for the fish as early as next week, with the Sharks going in last, around mid August. The exhibit has been in construction for over 2.5 years, see below link to the Two Oceans Aquarium blog entry for more details. http://www...
KAMERS Vol Geskenke is on at The Castle this weekend (1-5 June 2016). We are super proud to be associated with this amazing 'pop-up retail phenomenon' that started in a house in Stellenbosch in 2003 and is now a national treasure of all things beautiful. Everything on sale beams with handmade artistry, creative inspiration and local genius. One can liken it to walking through an art gallery in a quintessential countryside town in 1950's France, evermore-so with its setting inside a heritage...

The future of the J&B Met Event has been in the news these past weeks. Instead of speculating on what might happen in the future, we would rather take you on a trip down memory lane... Chattels has been involved with the Corporate Hospitality Village for the J&B Met Event since the 90's, in varying degrees. From its humble beginnings of using Victorian Style Iron Cast Street lights for decor, plastic furniture for dining and wrought iron garden furniture to watch the races; to the...

Chattels was invited to an inspiring presentation from Elana Meyer and the rest of the Sanlam CT Marathon role players at the announcement of the 30 Day countdown. A lot of banter about "I challenge you" raised a few laughs, and made everyone secretly think that it would be too much fun to miss, luckily we do have our Speedy Gonzales Director Paul Clarke representing! I think next year we should all take the challenge! Chattels is a proud partner of the next 4 years, we are super excited to be...

Working on such a big event in Congo comes with its challenges, logistically we need to be prepared for any eventuality to ensure that the build goes as smoothly as possible, and does not jeopardize the event in any way. Troubleshooting 101- especially when the roof beams get left behind in SA because the cargo plane only had a side door and the beams didn't fit in it - we build the frames, pegged the base plates, prepped the PVC....and waited.

Putting up infrastructure in Central Africa does come with its challenges, like the cargo plane that is transporting all the stock to Congo only having a side door, which means that the roof beams didn't fit, which translates to a delay in getting the structures up in time. By some miracle our team managed to beat the deadline,and handover the structures that were needed when they were needed. Over 6.000sqm of marquee stock has been erected. Go Team!
