Since 2007, INHOUSE Venue Technical Management (IVTM) has been the in-house preferred supplier of technical event support to Southern Sun, The Cullinan's events, and with the relationship growing stronger year on year, hope to continue in this role for many years to come. The Cullinan hotel's friendly staff and experienced management team make it easy to align the IVTM service seamlessly with the hotel's own. 'Everyone onsite has the same agenda; namely to make sure that our guests have a memorable experience and remember their stay long after their departure, for all the right reasons." says IVTM's Manager at the Cullinan, Ridaa Khan.
Being a mere stone's throw away from the Cape Town International Convention Centre Southern Sun, The Cullinan is an ideal venue for the small to medium breakaway conferences and overflow from the Convention centre. The six venue Conference Centre caters for more private and interactive conferences as well as staff training seminars. Southern Sun's The Cullinan hotel is also a favourite in the sporting arena and regularly hosts the Springbok rugby team and Proteas cricket team as well as the Vodacom Super 14 rugby teams.
The hotel's proximity to Cape Town's Green Point Soccer Stadium has made it one of the FIFA 2010 World Cup fan bases with bookings from FIFA staff, international media and World Cup sponsors, Sony. IVTM has been on standby for all their technical requirements.
Soccer Fever swept though the venue on 18th June when SS Cullinan hosted a Soccer Day which saw hundreds of local and international guests dancing, singing and waving their respective flags. IVTM provided the audio equipment for all the entertainment, including a live band.
The event was attended by journalists from various news and television stations around the world and even surprised passersby were invited to join in the fun when hotel Staff handed out complimentary Vuvuzelas and South African flags to all. If the warmth of the Cullinan hotel's ambience takes the chill out of the Cape winter air; the venue has taken it yet a step further since June - encouraging coffee lovers around the Peninsula to warm their innards with a taste of international franchise Starbucks coffee, now available at the Cullinan.
Banqueting co-ordinator, Riefqah Ismail, is one of many at the Cullinan who believe that the IVTM service is making a difference at this vibrant venue. "I would like to thank INHOUSE for their incredible service delivery and making the impossible, possible. It's a pleasure working with IVTM as they strive to make our clients happy."
