The Zip Zap performers (above) are ready to dazzle, sparkle and delight at your corporate event in 2015.
As many event organisers know, Cape Town offers some exquisite venues for corporate functions, however hosting an event at the same type of venue year after year may become monotonous for those who attend.
It’s always a challenge to find a venue that ticks all the boxes, AND offers something unique and special for the guests. It’s important for all companies looking for a venue to consider whether the venue uses local suppliers, and a bonus is if they contribute towards the upliftment of those in need in some way.
Cape Town’s very own social circus and internationally recognised, award winning Non-Profit Organisation (NPO), Zip Zap, falls perfectly into this category. Over the past 23 years Zip Zap has tackled poverty and unemployment in Cape Town, by teaching circus acts to aspiring youngsters in local impoverished areas. They also drive outreach programmes where they visit HIV treatment clinics and entertain and teach the children circus tricks while they wait in queues for their antiretroviral (ARV) medication.
The Zip Zap dome near the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is the perfect central place to host corporate functions and is an ideal Corporate Social Investment (CSI) beneficiary.
“We teach circus skills in the greater Cape Town area, ensuring that high-risk youth have a place to go where they can fully express themselves through a creative outlet; keeping them away from a world of gangsterism and drugs,” explains Brent van Rensburg, Co-founder and Artistic Director of Zip Zap.
The Zip Zap dome can accommodate a maximum of 600 people with plenty of parking at the door step. “We give our best to our clients and we tailor our corporate function offering according to the specific business’ requirements. Should a more intimate setting be required, we have a screen that can be put up in order to limit the size of the dome”, says van Rensburg.
Hosting a corporate function at the Zip Zap dome guarantees a ‘Zip Zap’ element with pizazz that will leave the audience awestruck. Not only will attendees experience outstanding entertainment, but the business will also be making a direct contribution towards community upliftment as the entertainers come from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.
Zip Zap provides circus entertainment of international standards. Businesses are ensured a professional and problem-free organisation of their corporate events when they choose our dome to host their functions.
Zip Zap provides stage, audio and lighting equipment which removes the pain of running around for suppliers. Their ‘all-in-one’ package ensures a ‘headache-free’ event. “We wanted to organise something different from standard company functions…Nothing better than supporting a beautiful initiative like Zip Zap and offering at the same time a pure moment of joy for our employees, clients, friends and their families,” says Benoît Buron, AMT SA (Pty) Ltd.
A long-term partnership with a level 1 BBBEE organisation will raise your reputation as a business that cares, while ensuring that a trusted NPO can continue to tackle unemployment, transfer skills and educate high risk youth living in Cape Town.
