The first ever Standard Bank Polo in The Park will be taking place at Joburg’s renowned lifestyle resort, Steyn City, on 16 November 2019.
Acclaimed actress, style icon, influencer Amanda du-Pont, has just been revealed as the host for the inaugural event. Effortlessly gorgeous, stylish and a globetrotter of note, du Pont is the perfect choice for this African first backed by Africa’s biggest bank.
The theme for the event is Polo through the Ages. It will showcase the iconic countries and cities that polo first became popular in—from Persia, where it all started 2000 years ago—to Shanghai, Jaipur, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, and Joburg.
The Standard Bank Polo in The Park is not only about polo, but about the lifestyle that accompanies the sport of kings. The event boasts an Aspire Art Pop-Up Gallery, a Bulgari Jewellery Lounge, a luxury fashion emporium (including sunglasses by Freckle Eyewear and a showcase by Sandton City’s Diamond Walk), entertaining jazz and hip-hop performances, and a luxury car showcase.
Experience Joburg like never before with an extraordinary polo line-up in a brand-new format of polo; great hospitality, riveting entertainment and a programme of luxury lifestyle experiences.
Standard Bank has partnered with luxury events and marketing company The African Deluxe Company to showing the world that South Africa can seamlessly, and repeatedly, host world-class, iconic luxury events worth travelling for. And that South Africa is a country worth investing in. One of the African Deluxe Company partners, Anina Malherbe-Lan co-founded the iconic Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town 10 years ago, so excellence and world-class hospitality is to be expected.
A perfect way to end off the year in style, whether it is to celebrate the arrival of Summer, or to celebrate your Year End Party with pure class.
