FXTM Big Wave Dinner & Beach Clean

28 May, 2019

On 18 May, FXTM’s Touchdown in Cape Town: The Big Wave series of events landed in South Africa’s Mother City – Cape Town. The series kicked off with two spectacular events, the Big Wave Opening Dinner and the Diep River Lagoon beach clean, which brought together the local community to learn more about protecting the oceans, and take action together. 

The Big Wave Opening Dinner* was truly “jawesome”. Against the striking backdrop of the Two Oceans Aquarium’s predator exhibit, with six sharks circling in the background throughout the evening, the packed room of nearly 70 enthusiasts and traders were captivated by motivational speeches from FXTM’s Head of Education, Andreas Thalassinos and UN Patron of the Oceans, Lewis Pugh. 


Highlights of the evening include: 

  • The two motivational experts sharing inspirational anecdotes, teaching attendees the importance of education, determination and perseverance.
  • Show-stopping entertainment, including a spectacular act by two Zulu dancers decked in FXTM brand colours. 
  • The award presentation for Gregg Daly, second-place winner of the Big Wave Trading Contest (under Exinity Limited). 
  • Delicious food, a fully engaged audience and the perfect opportunity for attendees to network with one another in a truly memorable setting. 

Lewis Pugh, a Cape Town local, was amazed at the diversity in the audience and how interested they were in the educational aspect of trading. He commented: “I’ve never seen anything quite like it in South Africa.”

Following on from the dinner, the Big Wave beach clean organised by Big Bay Events, took place on May 19 off the coast of Sunset Beach, right by the infamous Diep River area in Cape Town. Over 100 Capetonians joined Team FXTM and Brand Ambassador Lewis Pugh in ridding the beach of harmful plastic and waste. 

Families from across the region (some of whom even brought their dogs along!) joined together to collect and dispose of waste that might otherwise endanger the lives of marine life. It was a truly wonderful outdoor community experience, with many kids who are part of a youth development programme joining in. 

After the clean-up, attendees enjoyed well-earned food and live music from one of South Africa’s famous DJ Milkshake. 

Team FXTM would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended the fantastic first Big Wave events in Cape Town. It was a pleasure to meet so many Capetonians who are passionate about protecting the world’s oceans, and celebrate the power of education and community.
