Dreamcatcher Multimedia is privileged to have produced some of the most demanding and spectacular live events projects staged in SA, from the BRICS Summit to the Launch of the Cricket World Cup and the African Economic Expansion Summit.
Similarly, our PR division boasts a stable of clients which is the envy of many. We publicise SABMiller, Converse, SABC shows, Diners Club, mining houses, and more.
Dreamcatcher was mandated to coordinate a seminar for SAMDA and the Department of Minerals & Energy within the Mining Federation Summit at the Electra Mining Africa Summit The purpose of the seminar was twofold – the first was for Government to interact with leaders within the mining arena, and the second was for government representatives to report back and dialogue with the SMME’s within the mining space. The Summit took place at Nasrec, and as per our brief, Dreamcatcher created an environment for high profile gathering befitting the presence of the government ministers and CEO’s of large mines on one hand, and a more traditional workshop for the report-back/dialogue session with the SMME’s, on the other.
The Dalton Private Reserve was launched in September 2008. A project that spanned over a year-long duration, the launch was a combination of banquet dinner, game drives, a concert and a theatrical re-enactment of historical events.
The guest list consisted solely of international VIP guests (captains of industry in their respective countries) who flew in from Russia, Australia, the U.K., and the U.S.A.
We were committed to ensuring that the people of the Tugela region and within the Kwa Zulu Natal province benefitted from this incredible project. To this end, we enlisted the services of a range of service providers who collaborated with locals to deliver the services required. The companies and services in question include:
Eager Artists – a Durban-based choreography company, headed up by world renowned artistic director, Jerry Pooe who worked with and trained members of the local community to deliver the theatrical historical reenactment.
Dreamcatcher was appointed on Wednesday, 30 March 2011 to implement the Planning and management of the National Consultative Conference scheduled for 14 to 15 April 2011 in Newtown
The planning and execution process included, venue feasibility and various additional surround logistics of which we were mandated to incorporate into the two day programme cultural performances, the cocktail function, an arts & crafts exhibition and excursion experience to the surrounding sights
The Africa Economic Expansion Summit of November 2014 appointed Dreamcatcher as producer, just two months prior to the event. A lack of event experience led the clients to request that we take the lead on most aspects of this massive project. The conference would be over 3 days at the Durban ICC, include opening and closing ceremonies, a gala dinner, 2 cocktail dinners, 3 sponsored lunches, over 100(!) presentations, nearly 150 foreign patrons, +20 international speakers, and an exhibition, not to mention numerous local dignitaries ranging from the CEOs of Top 100 companies to world-renowned experts, and Ministerial representation.
The Heads of State Retreat was a private dinner for the 5 BRICS Heads of State accompanied by their core teams. This took place at Zimbali Resort in Ballito and the event was also attended by over 200 Diplomats, political principals as well as high ranking government officials.
The BRICS BUSSINESS LOUNGE (BBL) was initially incorporated into the BRICS Summit planning by DIRCO in order to give the sizable business delegations that will accompany the Heads of State, the opportunity to network and interact. Once sponsors were brought in, it then became a platform for the sponsors to also invite their guests and use it as an extended networking platform
Over 250 high profile guests, ranging from ministers, ambassadors & other diplomats as well as top SA business people attended the event. The BBL served as a cocktail function prior to the main event, the cultural opening ceremony.
