The Aleit Group Appointed by Zeitz MOCAA as the Exclusive Event and Restaurant Operator
Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa)
The Aleit Group, renowned for its spectacular, high-end events and weddings for the past 17 years, has been appointed by the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) as the exclusive restaurant and event operator throughout the museum. This includes the management of the restaurant and venue on level six, as well as all events hosted within the museum.
Whilst The Aleit Group remains at the forefront of the wedding and events industry in South Africa, the brand has evolved and diversified into a global collective with an extensive offering. With this comprehensive business approach, The Aleit Group provides a range of services including décor hiring, catering, bar services and staffing, event management training, venue management, and entertainment arenas. The extent of services ensures clients tailored concepts and impressive results, down to the finest detail.
Founder and Chairman, Aleit Swanepoel, is elated about this opportunity. He commented, “What an honour and privilege to be selected as the event operator with such a phenomenal group of visionaries; experts and true ambassadors of contemporary art. We are thrilled to complete the picture and to be the final brush stroke of this exciting project.”
For anyone looking to host a remarkable event, the museum space is unlike anything on the continent. In fact, it is arguably unlike anything in the world. Available for private functions, after hours, the atrium is an exceptional space for arrival drinks and canapés, allowing guests access to view the works on display across 80 galleries.
The level six restaurant and venue looks out onto the museum’s rooftop sculpture garden. It truly is a breathtaking event venue which can accommodate up to 200 guests with a 270-degree view of Cape Town, and possibly the best view of Table Mountain in the city.
As the exclusive event operator, The Aleit Group is responsible for all venue, food, and beverage management.
Mark Coetzee, Executive Director and Chief Curator of Zeitz MOCAA said, “Zeitz MOCAA strives to offer the best experience and offering to all our visitors and guests. We know that with having The Aleit Group taking care of our restaurant and events, all of our guests will be well-cared for and every component of the museum experience, both public and private, will be to the highest standards.
We look forward to guests experiencing amazing art, programming and, now with The Aleit Group on-board, food and refreshments from September onwards.”
The museum venue and event spaces are set to open over Heritage weekend – 22 September 2017.
Booking enquiries open 5 June 2017.
