Atmosphere Communications welcomes Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu to the UN Foundation event in Cape Town

Atmosphere helps to host UN Foundation events in Cape Town

The UN Foundation (UNF) recently approached Atmosphere Communications to assist with three events coinciding with the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Cape Town.

The main request from the UNF was to organise several panel discussions at an event to be hosted at the University of Cape Town. Using tools such as Eventbrite and Google Docs, we were ready for anything, including last-minute speaker changes (with a cancellation the night before), an extra panel added, as well as several ‘surprise elements’ squeezed into the event.

But it was the event that the UNF had organised at the One & Only Hotel at the V&A Waterfront on the last day of the WEF that ‘took the cake’ – we learned within a few hours of the event that Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was going to attend – together with a small entourage. The Tutu family was happily accommodated – resulting in some ecstatic guests upon the arrival of The Arch.
