Cape Town Tourism staff members joined media delegates for the Loerie Awards Media Lunch at The Pepper Club in Camps Bay this afternoon. With sunny skies overhead and the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the background, journalists from other parts of the world admitted they were envious of those who were lucky enough to live in Cape Town.
Loerie Awards CEO Andrew Human was in attendance and looked remarkably relaxed, considering all the last-minute arrangements required to pull off such a prestigious event.
Visiting journalists noted that Cape Town was becoming a very popular destination for events of all sizes. Last weekend, for example, Cape Town hosted the very successful Africa Aerospace & Defence 2010 air airshow, which attracted top pilots and aviation companies from more than 30 different countries.
There was also a lot of talk among journalists about how well Cape Town had done during the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, despite negative press about the city’s winter weather before the tournament.
Camps Bay, which has been used as a location to represent the Caribbean in several international films, is one of the trendiest areas on the planet, with a white, sandy beach and an assortment of hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs along its picturesque promenade.
