A hearty welcome to 2013!


We wish each and every one of you a blessed and prosperous New Year!  May the New Year’s resolutions that you’ve all committed to, not only be about personal and business goals but about lifestyle changes.


We here at Conference Complete are all inspired to give you our very best this year!  The best attention, the best service, the best price and the best solutions!


Thank you for your continuous loyalty and support throughout 2012. We would not be able to do what we do without you.


I am sure most of you would have received a personal phone call from one of us at the office to confirm your details. We have been busy for the last two weeks updating our database.  This was a very fruitful exercise indeed!  Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.


In this newsletter, we would again like to emphasize our Free Venue Finding service.  With the financial yearend looming, we have an impressive list of NEW VENUES and SOLUTIONS to go with your NEW BUDGET. We are not only experts at planning events but also great VENUE FINDERS, so should you require any assistance with booking venues, please contact us.


With the month of love on our doorstep we are featuring some fun gifting ideas.  Please remember our policy of a minimum order of 50 units!   Visit our website www.completegifts.co.za for other gifting ideas.   


This month we take a look at another trendy venue, an absolutely amazing corporate entertainer (also good looking by the way!) and feature a small boutique hotel in the Durbanville vineyards. 


If you are running out of ideas what to do for Valentine’s Day, we have a few listed below.



We are looking forward to building a great working relationship with you and your team this year!


Here’s to 2013!

Meet Ike Moriz - Our Own Michael Bublé


In the past five years No.1 international singer, producer, composer and actor Ike Moriz has been on an incredible journey delving deeply into the world’s vast songbook of Jazz, Latin & Swing standards.


He recorded & published a total of eight albums of this genre, was voted one of the top five vocalists in South Africa, filmed several music videos, toured South Africa & Northern Europe playing over 350 concerts, and became one of the most sought after SA entertainers for both local & international events.  Recently Ike also got married to Madri, sister to well-known SA stage and TV personality Nataniël.


In 2013 Ike Moriz re-appears on the international Jazz & music scene with “Siren Terpsichore”, his 13th studio album to date, which has already been described as the “Crown jewel of original SA swing” (CD Baby).  Composed, produced & recorded by Ike himself, it contains 14 beautifully crafted, brand-new songs in the Jazz/Swing/Latin genre - including the popular UK ‘Abbey Road Mix’ of his recent composition “Angie Blue” as well as two recordings in Spanish language, sung in his favorite Argentinean-Spanish accent.


Siren Terpsichore was recorded at Paris Studios in Cape Town with a band of top session musicians from all over the world (SA, Mozambique, Argentina, Germany, Scotland). The album is both upbeat and uplifting with his usual fresh, jovial, tongue-in-cheek Swing/Jazz sentiment.  If Frank Sinatra had been a songwriter and if he was still alive, he’d surely be writing songs such as these: with strong vocals, timeless melodies and powerful, archetypal lyrics straight from the heart!

Recent Reviews:
“The rich resonance of his voice makes Michael Buble's seem rather thin... Comparisons with the great Tony Bennett are inevitable.  Ike Moriz performing swing is that good!"  (Full Circle Magazine, SA)

 “I’m sure had he been writing these songs 50 or 60 years ago, some would have become standards in their own right, and would have been sung by the great vocalists of the day – Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Sinatra, etc... Moriz takes hold of his material and dominates its tones and nuances with his utterly distinctive chords.  It’s powerful, compelling and completely in tune with the drama of his songs.”  (Leicester Bangs Magazine, UK)

"… This cat writes a fine tune. Listen to it when wearing velvet and drinking martinis!" (FHM, SA)






Influenced by some of the world’s most glamorous entertainment venues, along with a spectacular location, private beach, expansive outside deck and destination cuisine, Shimmy Beach Club features a containership-inspired bar, illuminated champagne bar, infinity swimming pool, lounge and main restaurant under the hand of celebrated chef, Seelan Sundoo.

For a hot oceanfront outing, there’s no cooler place to be. This luxury lifestyle destination encapsulates the epitome of easy living. From its scintillating surrounding views – guests can feast on panoramas of both the rolling waters of the working harbour and the majestic backdrop of Table Mountain – to its lolling loungers and affluent see-and-be-seen crowds.

For those looking to soak up the sun rather than brave the cold, a large outdoor deck with sun lounger beds, infinity pool and private beach provides the optimum opportunity to languish outside and take in the stunning surrounding views. Top off your relaxation with a glass of bubbly from the champagne bar for a fully hedonistic afternoon.

The restaurant dishes up internationally influenced flavours and combinations. Select a seat in the nautically decorated restaurant or savour your meal alfresco on the expansive deck with the waves at your feet.

Whisky and vodka tastings are available for group bookings.

If your feet start itching and you feel the need to get up and move, you can boogie the night away to some of the best house beats on the swanky indoor dance floor. Or, if you prefer the great outdoors, shake beneath the stars to a variety of live music on the 1.6 metre-high hydraulic stage; it’s located on the beach.
