The dates for the 2011 Loeries weekend have been announced. Along with some other news:
The Festival Weekend will take place in Cape Town from 16 September to 18 September 2011, with the awards ceremonies being hosted at a new venue, the Cape Town International Convention Centre. The awards ceremonies will be held on Saturday 17 September and Sunday 18 September in the main auditorium of the CTICC.
Ticket sales for The 33rd Annual Loerie Awards open in mid April 2011.
And the big change to this year’s festival – This year the Loeries awards ceremonies will be black-tie affairs – with red-carpet treatment.
Agency parties are to held on the Saturday night while The Official Party will be at the Fez on Sunday. Limited tickets to Sunday’s ceremony means junior agency staff will be asked to go straight to the Fez to watch the awards on a live link, while everyone attending the awards will be able to join the party as soon as the last statue is handed out.
