About EDB

The EDB journey

started in January 2009 by Ettiene de Bruyn, the owner, director, and host of all the major sporting events.

Ettiene, who has always had a passion for sports, started off his career as a professional sportsman (pro rugby player) and cricketer. He moved onto sports administration at Affies, to a social development business in Cullinan and in 2009 found his calling in hosting events and entertaining people when he started his own company – EDB Hospitality & Events.

Today EDB is pleased to offer exclusive corporate contracts to entertain your clients in your own Private Hospitality Suite at the most exclusive stadiums in South Africa. The EDB team has extensive experience in the field, having worked on almost every major sporting event to take place in South Africa including polo, golf, rugby, cricket and soccer. 

Expanding to a current staff compliment of 12 people, and with an ethos of going the extra mile regarding service and with respect to all client interactions, big or small, EDB creates memorable experiences and provides VIP service for its clients, by fulfilling corporate or business needs with a variety of quality sourced products and services.

Be it in supplying specific business related products, organising and booking business transport and travel requirements,  or planning year end functions or team building experiences, branding corporate clothing, workwear, uniforms and casual wear, providing corporate gifts and vouchers and a whole lot more.

Our employees are central to our ability to operate effectively. Therefore we feel it is vital that all employees are equipped with knowledge, skills and values. Effective training and skills awareness is done formally and informally through skills transfer. All our interventions are based on a people-focused approach to enhance skills awareness and training activities.

Training helps teach the vision and mission, but employees must put the training in action for it to have meaning “ Shep Hyken
