WHAT WE DO

Base Africa Delivers live international events primarily to the African continent, our reputation is proudly built upon honesty and delivery. Our work is as diverse as our customer base and ranges from small intimate club launches to a full red carpet film premier, to world tours for leading musicians to international friendly football matches in rugby and football to championship boxing matches. As diverse as these events might seem they all share one thing, they all were delivered on time and to, or under budget. One thing that sets us apart from others is that we all come from totally different backgrounds with totally different fields of expertise and as a business we are always adapting and learning from each other. We are not blinkered in our approach nor set in our ways, we are truly flexible and always happy to go the extra mile to ensure the project is given every chance of success.

We have many top sporting and musical contacts at the highest level across the world which in turn has given us ease of access into many blue chip companies and businesses, both corporate and entrepreneurial, and we have worked hard to gain their trust and confidence.

We have worked as consultants on various events where we acted as commercial agents to secure sponsors, endorsements and advertising.
