Geness Consulting breathes new life into beach volleyball

The event, which ended on a high with nail-biting finishes to the men’s and women’s finals in front of an energetic crowd, was promoted and project managed by Geness Consulting who worked in close collaboration with the City of Durban, Volleyball South Africa (VSA), KwaZulu-Natal Volleyball (KZNV), Sizawena Branding & Marketing and sponsors Gateway Theatre of Shopping and PC Training.
