Platinum Award For The Blue Train Stand At Tourism INDABA 2014


The Blue Train proved why it is considered amongst the leaders in the travel and tourism industry when it took the honours of being named amongst the Best Stand Designs at this year’s Indaba Tourism show held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre (formerly Durban ICC) from the 10th – 12th May 2014.

The striking 4.5 metre arched stand reflected the richness of natural cherry-wood veneer finishes with blue LED emblems which were created to match and enhance the panelling of the interior of the train, won The Blue Train a Platinum Award at the Indaba stand awards at the ICC Hall 3. Platinum is the ultimate award – it is the Number 1 coveted prize!   

The stand was designed by Sharon Myburgh of Pivion Communications, one of the best in the industry, after she was briefed to create a modern, “funky” yet sophisticated stand that will match the class and prestige of The Blue Train brand, after she had successfully won a tender to design The Blue Train stands for the 2014-15 financial year.

“Winning this award sets the tone for some of the objectives we have set ourselves for this year - of reclaiming our glory of being the leader in the luxury rail experience. After having received nominations before, finally winning the Platinum award is the “icing on the cake”. We are very proud of this stand and the work and extra effort that Pivion Communications have put in. Our clients have also been impressed and have sent their felicitations. We are truly grateful! Commented Hanlie Kotze, Executive Manager of The Blue Train.

The Blue Train had previously won Gold at these awards.
