Alto Ceto Event

Durban, KwaZulu Natal


Alto Ceto Event Management is an event planning company based in Durban owned and powered by Pop-up Society.

Meaning ‘upper class’ in Italian, Alto Ceto was purely formed to serve the needs of a high end clientele (high society) in Durban with custom design, creative finishes and a full turnkey operation ranging from full event planning and logistics, pre-event, post event, upscale catering, flights, accommodation, car rental and general vendor coordination.

Alto Ceto Event Management delivers more than 10 years of collective experience in event planning along with conference planning in the Durban area.

Set against the sub-tropical background of Durban, owners Mike Laing and Rev Batohi paved the way for Alto Ceto Event Management through their various involvements in Durban’s social scene with their main focus being the Vodacom Durban July.

They also garner a vast network of vendors making Alto Ceto unique and totally experiential.

Batohi qualified as a chef and served corporate hospitality for 9 years before leaving the corporate realm to open a contemporary style restaurant with Laing who studied Hotel Management at IHS (International Hotel School).

Sophisticated, professional, accessible and friendly, Alto Ceto Events are truly a new take on old concepts.
