South African sports enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that the date for the 2014 Cape Town Corporate Games has been confirmed. The third annual Cape Town Corporate Games will be held from 05-08 June 2014 at the V&A Waterfront and other supporting venues, bringing thousands of business visitors to the Mother City.
3rd South Africa, organisers of the Cape Town Corporate Games , are proud to welcome the V&A Waterfront back on board as the official host venue for this prestigious event.
David Green, CEO V&A Waterfront commented, “This year, the V&A Waterfront not only successfully hosted Corporate Games 2013 but also actively participated in a variety of events. We are proud to confirm our involvement in 2014, and having seen the positive impact on team spirit, we encourage corporates across the country to sign up and capitalise on the great team building prospects Corporate Games presents.”
Corporate Games is the world’s largest multi-sports festival for businesses and organisations, and brings global sporting competition within everyone’s reach. The V&A Waterfront is the perfect host venue to showcase some of the best that Cape Town has to offer as a tourism, business and sporting destination.
According to Nicole Visser, Marketing & Communications Manager at 3rd South Africa, this year’s event has received an enormous amount of interest from organisations across South Africa and the rest of the world. “Companies are keen to be involved in this opportunity of sporting competition, team building and networking,” said Visser. “The Cape Town Corporate Games is fast becoming one of the premier events on the corporate calendar.”
The number of participants has doubled since 2012 and there were 47 companies taking part in this year’s Games. The organisers are attempting to break the Corporate Games record in years to come which is currently held by Melbourne, Australia where 12 000 athletes participated in 2009.
The Corporate Games was founded to encourage companies to support their employees in pursuing a more active lifestyle. It enhances teamwork and cooperation at work, and provides valuable opportunities for networking and brand exposure – not to mention lots of friendly sporting rivalry and fun!
