Events Extraordinaire has been in the business of helping their mining and mineral clients execute some of the most prestigious events in the most remote areas of South Africa. Their dedicated team, lead by Clara Mdlalose, has been able to meet the needs of their clients and responded to some of the most challenging briefs because of their understanding of the rural mining communities they operate in.

“It all begins with a proper understanding of the brief from the mining client and working within the allocated budget for the event ensuring that we respond to Supply Inclusive Procurement by engaging and empowering local businesses in order to make a significant positive contribution to our host communities. Effective local procurement practices then contribute to job creation and skills development by lowering logistics costs and facilitates access to critical goods and services,” says Clara Mdlalose.

Over the years, the events industry, especially in the mining and minerals space, has been challenged to bring in more local players in the form of Historically Disadvantaged South African businesses. Events Extraordinaire sees this as an opportunity to create their niche.

We specialize in creating the overall event and focus on the Invitations, Response Handling and Onsite Accreditation, Event Site and Floor Plans, JOC Committee, Infrastructure, VIP Requirements and then outsourcing the rest of the event requirements to local suppliers, managing them and assisting in overseeing the implementation of these services by acting as Community Event Specialist Advisor whereby Extraordinaire becomes the Integrator in terms of quality assurance and successful delivery of all CSI mining and mineral events within the host communities.

In many instances, they have to empower the local suppliers through on-the-job coaching and mentoring to ensure excellent execution of projects.

With her tenacity and over 20 years’ experience in the events space the leader of Events Extraordinaire, Clara Mdlalose, has helped guide many a mining and mineral client into successful events execution. From working with Presidents, Ministers, MEC’s, Mayors, Counsellors, Board Members and General Managers to local community members, this team has been able to service them all with the right amount of decorum required by each.

With the new focus that is responsive to the needs of the clients, the future does look bright for Events Extraordinaire. The fact that the company is 100% female owned does not only bring value to the clients, but it ensures that a feminine touch based on caring shines through their work.

The company has indeed responded to the needs of the mining and minerals industry and their host communities, and they are destined for greatness.
