A venue fit for a queen!
The Table Bay hotel at the V&A Waterfront to host the 2020 Miss SA pageant
For the first time in its 62-year history, the Miss South Africa pageant’s finale will be hosted in Cape Town, at Sun International’s Table Bay hotel at the V&A Waterfront.
The luxurious five-star hotel is the epitome of grace, elegance and poise, while the V&A Waterfront’s breath-taking views of Table Mountain, the city, Table Bay and Robben Island ensure it is one of the most-visited destinations in Africa.
A fitting venue and destination in which to crown the fairest lady in the land. Miss South Africa 2020 will be crowned at The Table Bay hotel in an entertainment-packed event on Saturday, October 24, from 5pm. The event will be screened live on M-Net and Mzansi Magic, and will be streamed live to an international audience.
Table Bay General Manager Joanne Selby said: “The Table Bay was never an option to host the pageant throughout Sun International’s long history with it, as we have always had guests staying with us. We’ve been closed since the beginning of the lockdown, but are getting ready to open along with international borders. The timing is fortuitous, as it is just prior to a spectacular official opening we’re planning for October 30.
“We will host the Top 10 Miss South Africa finalists and a few guests in the week leading up to the pageant.
“We can also assure anyone who would like to stay with us that we have stringent COVID-19 health and safety protocols in place. Both our hotel and the V&A Waterfront bear the World Travel and Tourism Council’s international ‘Safe Travels’ destination stamp. This confirms our protocols match or exceed international benchmarks.”
CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation, Stephanie Weil, is thrilled that this year’s pageant will be taking place at The Table Bay.
“Sun International has a long association with the Miss South Africa Organisation. For 19 years, Sun International was the sole license-holder of the pageant. In 2019 Weil Entertainment bought Miss South Africa from Sun International. We are extremely happy to remain an associate sponsor of Miss South Africa.
