ECHO hearts Green Point

11 Apr

The We Heart Green Point team caught up with Gemma Spickernell from ECHO Events to hear all about how they run some of the best events in the country. This is what she had to say…

What’s ECHO all about?

ECHO is one of South Africa’s leading and most reputable event and conference companies. Our strengths lie in the ability to create fresh, original and dynamic concepts for the corporate and incentive market – always offering clients a unique and inspirational experience. ECHO can design and implement any event concept – from lifestyle projects to corporate conferences. ECHO supports and cares for our environment and promotes recycling initiatives and responsible drinking at all of our events.

What does ECHO love about Green Point?

Green Point is a fast paced “city, within a city”. Creativity and efficiency are evenly balanced. After a challenging day in the office there is nothing better then stepping onto the promenade for a run or sipping on cocktails at Sky Bar at the Cape Royale. ECHO loves the availability of cappuccinos and fresh croissants on our doorstep and lunch-break shops at the Cape Quarter.

What does ECHO bring to Green Point?

ECHO loves the networking opportunities Green Point presents and in return, presents fresh and masterfully executed concepts with awe-inspiring efficiency. ECHO fuels the creativity and vitality of the “city” with our own energy. We have a symbiotic relationship.

Three favourite neighbourhood spots?

ECHO supports all local enterprises, favourites include: El Burro for margaritas and tacos; Table Thirteen for almost daily cappuccinos; and REYJEANE for mani’s and pedi’s.
