INHOUSE Venue Technical Management (IVTM), a member of the Gearhouse Group, was created specifically to service the day-to-day technical requirements of conference and entertainment venues - a service which is increasingly in demand as technology advances and guests expect facilities in line with international standards. IVTM services a substantial portfolio of high profile venues across South Africa and was pleased to be awarded preferred supplier status at the prestigious One&Only Cape Town towards the end of last year.

After only two months, it became clear that full time onsite representation would be required to provide a full technical service in keeping with the needs and standards of this premiere urban-chic resort and its unprecedented level of luxury and style.

Niels Nilsson is the allocated INHOUSE Venue Technical Manager at One&Only Cape Town. He is available onsite at the resort to fulfil all the venue's technical needs, to provide technical advice and support for the venue's clients and to ensure that all events take place efficiently and safely.

"As one of IVTM's long-standing, reliable freelance engineers with a strong client service ethos, we felt that Niels was the perfect match for this venue." says IVTM Operations Manager, Bradley Cooke. "The in-house representative needs to reflect the brand values of the venue and support the venue's clients with flawless service - it takes a particular mind set and our technical staff are very carefully vetted before being placed."

Situated in the V&A Waterfront, this luxury hotel boasts panoramic views of Table Mountain, making the resort a destination in itself. As the first luxury hotel to open in Cape Town in nearly a decade, the resort is designed to celebrate the city's wine, art, design and spirit, balancing contemporary glamour with an authentic South African style.

Discerning guests are invited to discover the celebrated cuisine of Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa and Chef Reuben Riffel, socialise in the high-energy vibe of the Vista Bar & Lounge and sample rare and undiscovered vintages at the stunning Wine Loft. 

The sublime calm of the city's most expansive and sophisticated Spa offers an indulgent escape, while NEO Boutique debuts an enviable collection of designer fashions, some available for the first time in South Africa. One&Only Cape Town offers unforgettable venues for high-end business meetings and events, charity and gala dinners, weddings and creative themed evenings including a beautifully appointed Ballroom measuring 216m² with a further 63m² of outdoor space, which can easily accommodate 120 guests for a sit down dinner or 250 for cocktails. There is also the option of dividing the Ballroom into two separate rooms for a more intimate setting. Adjacent to the Ballroom is the Marina Room, which can accommodate 20 guests seated boardroom style or up to 50 guests cinema style. A second boardroom seating up to 12 guests is also available in the Business Centre Boardroom. Isola restaurant and the island pool terrace are available for special outdoor events in the evenings and can accommodate 50 guests banquet style or up to 80 guests for a cocktail reception.

According to Niels, the comfort and care of each guest at One&Only Cape Town is attended to with genuine thoughtfulness and discreet service, touched by the freshness of local warmth and charm that comes directly from the heart. Now One&Only Cape Town's business clients are enjoying the same level of service when they choose this remarkable venue for their business or leisure events as well.
