The 057HC idea came about when we hosted an event at Constantia Guest House in 2013 which was attended by around 1,000 people, which exceeded our expectations by far.
The event was hosted on the 26th December as a “Home Coming” theme since we wanted to establish an exciting atmosphere wherein we could rejoice being back at our home city (i.e. Welkom) and reconnecting with each other after being absent from it for most part of the year.
The event grew substantially over the years and was moved in 2014 from Constantia guest house to plot 58 and then unicorn golf club from 2015 to 2017. We have been able to increase attendance to the event by 1,100% within the five years of its existence, from an estimated crowd of 1,000 in 2013 to 10,000 in 2017.
The event has a positive social and economic impact in Welkom and the surrounding areas given that preference to the procurement and employment opportunities during the event are given to the local community and businesses. The event patrons also get to spend money on other products and services from businesses not involved in the logistics of the event, which is an additional boost to the social and economic condition in Welkom and the surrounding areas.
Our event has attracted a large number of fans from other provinces which contributed positively to its success and in identifying our new quest of becoming a major and exciting event drawing people from all over South Africa and beyond.
