Durban July, Nokia Experience
A few weeks back I was lucky enough to be treated to a true VIP experience of the Durban July courtesy of Nokia South Africa. The day started off by me being chauffeur driven from my house to the venue, Greyville Racecourse. From there we made our way to Jack Daniels Boomtown marquee, which is where the Nokia hospitality area was located. From a full 3 course buffet to a complimentary bar, the hospitality area had it all! With a deck overlooking the stage to watch some of the best local artist from to the lounge area for one to sit back and relax, it truly was the place to be.
There was also a photo-booth set up in Jack Daniels Boomtown by Nokia which offered people the opportunity to get their picture taken with one of the Lumia devices on hand,one of them being the monster Lumia 1020 which has a 41 megapixel camera! The pictures were then uploaded to Instagram and Facebook. So if you had your picture taken at the booth, be sure to search the hashtag #LumiaJuly on Instagram or visit the Nokia South Africa Facebook page.
Apart from the entertainment on offer, the main reason for attending the event was for the horse racing, and with a viewing deck along side the final straight, it was the perfect view point to watch the favourite gallop to victory. The day was spent socialising, celeb spotting and partying the night away, after which I was again escorted to my awaiting taxi to take me back home safely. To the Nokia SA team, a big thank you from myself for making this all possible. Each and everyone of you made it an event to remember and personally my best July experience yet! Till next year!
