Discovery Networks Upfront 2013
Discovery Networks 2013 Upfront was a slick, elegant event, hosted at The Venue, Greenpark, on the 20th floor of the Sandton World Trade Centre. The theme was a celebration of Discovery’s “Leading Men”, and some of the hottest talent from Discovery Networks’ programmes was there to party along with us: Ben Hanlin (Magic of Science), Randy Fenoli (Say Yes to The Dress), Dave Salmoni (Deadly Islands), Joel Lambert (Manhunt) and Kim Wolhunter (Man Cheetah Wild).
The sunset views across Joburg did not disappoint, as guests mingled with sundowners and canapés before being led through into the screened-off presentation area, where an incredible technical set up showed off the Discovery content and footage at its best.
After the presentation, guests once again went out onto the balcony to mingle and enjoy dinner and cocktails from the Leading Men Bar, before coming back inside to be greeted by a completely ‘changed around’ party zone venue, with DJ Bega, DJ Euphonik and Ms Cosmo lighting up the LED dancefloor, a beatboxer and dance crew, with an interactive 3d mapped DJ box, Ice Cream Ninjas and an interactive green screen photo area – the evening was filled with fun, interactions, glamour and impressive technical elements, and guests partied until the early hours!
