Luminon Special Events cc was registered in June 1987, and we are now in our twenty-eighth year of operation. We specialise in producing and directing corporate special events including video and audio production, managing and producing award and high profile ceremonies and concentrate on technical excellence in regard to presentation.
We have consistently been credited as one of the top Production and Special Events Producers in Southern Africa with an impressive client base.
Our objective is to remain a small but totally efficient company keeping clients budgets within reasonable parameters. Luminon is run by Cal Kennedy, CSEP, who is the Event Producer and Marketing Manager, and has 33 years of production/ broadcasting experience. Highlights include producing the S.A. Elections for the SABC English channel in 1994.
Also, Luminon assisted Merle McKenna (AME) for Rugby World Cup 1995 producing the opening and closing ceremonies. We produced the WesBank Car of the Year event for seven years, the SAB Sports Journalists of the Year Awards for eight years and was commissioned by the USA to produce a video for the 1999 Academy Awards.
We have also produced personal videos for former Presidents Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki. We were part of Oprah Winfrey's production team which gave an incredible Christmas to 900 orphans and opened the exclusive Henley-on-Klip girls school. Then we finished the year producing and directing all the events during the SA Golf Open at Fancourt Links and Humewood Golf Club in Port Elizabeth for sponsors South African Airways.
Cal wrote exams in January 2001 in the United States of America, and successfully attained international recognition as a Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP). Only ±700 people worldwide have this accreditation through the George Washington University (three from South Africa). The CSEP designation is the hallmark of professional achievement in the special events industry, earned through education, performance and service to the industry.
