15 On Orange Now Part of the IVTM Portfolio
After a period of establishment and a growing business relationship, we are pleased to add African Pride 15 on Orange Hotel to the Western Cape portfolio of on-site venues at INHOUSE Venue Technical Management (IVTM).The African Pride brand is the Protea hotels’ Superior-Deluxe range, it primarily encompasses hotels, lodges and country houses. As Africa grows in popularity as a destination of choice for discerning tourists from around the world, the demand for first-class service and superior luxury steadily increases. African Pride was established with the sole purpose of meeting that demand and extending the understanding and experience of five-star hotel accommodation in Southern Africa. “This is the very reason why we have chosen IVTM as our on-site technical partner” says Juan Wolmarans - Banqueting Manager at 15 On Orange, “for their high level of service and attention to detail.”
Douglas Allen General Manager at 15 On Orange has this to say “ When conceptualizing the new Conference centre and breakaway rooms we knew we had to partner with an AV Company that would complement the hotels' service philosophy, provide quality equipment, have the necessary technical knowhow and be available to service the needs and wants of very demanding clients. In IVTM we have found this and more. We look forward to growing our business together with IVTM. “
