ONE WORLD FESTIVAL BUSINESS FORUM (article first published : 2007-07-21)

A Business Breakfast Forum to take place in the Royal Hotel on July 27 is one of the three ingredients at this year’s annual One World Festival aimed at building bridges between New Orleans and sister city Durban.

New Orleans is considered a special events mecca – a mantle which Durban, with its increased branding as an events city, would be keen to wear. Experts will be on hand to share knowledge on aspects of successful eventing. This promises to be useful in the lead up to 2010.

New Orleans annually hosts one of America’s biggest and most significant sporting events – the Superbowl. Years of experience in sports events management have been gained, which can now be shared with Durban business leaders, eventors and service providers.

Representatives from industry, commerce and eventors will be present to engage with Durban delegates. Special guests at this meeting include Lisa Ponce de Leon who is the Head of New Orleans International Business Development Unit. The President of New Orleans City, Oliver Thomas, and a contingent of stakeholders from New Orleans will be in Durban and will attend the breakfast to meet with city representatives, civic leaders and key personalities.

The Business Breakfast Forum Durban takes place in the Royal Hotel at 07h30 on July 27. To book contact Winile from the Business Support Unit on 031 311 4500.
