The second leg of the regional wine show programme directed by wine authority Michael Fridjhon and presented by OutSorceress Marketing kicks off with the launch of the exciting new Capital City Wine Show on 26 and 27 July in Pretoria.

The Capital City Wine Show takes place at the plush conference centre of the Maslow hotel at the sparkling new Sun Time Square in Menlyn.  The fabulous line-up of around 60 exhibitors includes rock star wineries such as Jordan, Kanonkop, Morgenster, Graham Beck, Anthonij Rupert, Ken Forrester, Tokara, De Grendel, Boekenhoutskloof, Glenelly and Rijk’s.  Smaller producers such as La Bri and South Hill will present their boutique wines with Wedgewood Nougat, Snyman Sjokolateur and Just Biltong supplying delicious wine-complementing fare.

Tickets can be bought via Computicket.com and at the door subject to availability.  No entry to under 18s, babies and prams.  Light meals are available for sale and purchases of wines are facilitated at the Shop@Show stand administered by a local retailer.

As a worldwide traveller with an eye for something different, I started Travel Match. This initiative matches the Corporate Buyer or Event co-ordinator/Marketing Manager to not only share experiences with each other during an educational but also opens up a world of different ideas. Venues and activities now have a chance to meet buyers on a social level before getting down to business. I design educationals around fun and intuitive thinking and the Travel Match members love them.
