What’s up in Cape Town on the conference venue scene?

SPOILT FOR CHOICE…..I have found, in the many years I have worked in the Conference Tourism industry that Cape Town more than any other South African city has ‘the mostest’ … literally hundreds of hotels and conference centres to select from in all areas. I will feature one of many because it really warrants mention …

LAGOON BEACH HOTEL in recent months completed a major refurb. and this, what was always a lovely hotel is even lovelier than before!

Because of consistently excellent service and tip-top standards, we have always supported this venue, which assures guests of quality cuisine, luxury and comfortable accommodation and friendly, helpful, well-trained staff, always professional yet warm and willing to go the extra mile.

Situated in the most idyllic location, on Lagoon Beach, in Milnerton in Cape Town, with breath-taking views of Table Mountain. This is Cape Town’s second largest conference venue – Lagoon Beach Hotel and Spa.
With direct access to the pristine Lagoon Beach strand and quick and easy access to Cape Town’s CBD… with the beach on their doorstep, plus the cheery, holiday vibe of the city, you have ‘ the best of both worlds’ whether on holiday or as a participant at a conference at this luxury four star hotel. 200 sophisticated en-suite rooms and suites, numerous holiday apartments, 9 conference venues and 4 world-class restaurants form the structure of this lovely venue. It’s close proximity to the renowned Milnerton Golf Course plus a short distance from Canal Walk (one of the largest shopping centres in South Africa) make LAGOON BEACH HOTEL a very appealing base when visiting Cape Town for any reason. AND, right at the hotel is a relaxing, superior Spa for those tired muscles at the end of a hectic day!

From this central location, guests might like to take short trips along some of the world’s best wine estates, most of which are a mere 50 km ride from Lagoon Beach Hotel and Spa. Whale watching from here is also popular and for those who enjoy an adrenaline shot, guests may launch themselves from one of the world’s highest commercial Bunji jumps and for something completely different, be entertained by South Africa’s unique, very own, brightly attired minstrels on hey days and special holidays!

This is where two mighty oceans meet and embrace, where fashion struts down catwalks that rival any, anywhere else in the world and where runners from every corner of the globe compete in the world’s most scenic marathon, where Table Mountain casts its gentle protective shade over a mixed, rainbow cultured nation, where a prison island hosted the world’s greatest liberation icon and where the finest wines in the country are made – CAPE TOWN is ‘where it’s at’ and filled abundantly with many varied attractions unique to Cape Town and the rest of the Western Cape. And LAGOON BEACH HOTEL & SPA is your central point from where you will reach all these world wonders without journeying far.

CONFERENCE VENUES

From the 9+ conference venues Lagoon Beach Hotel offers, all fully equipped with the latest technology, up to 600 delegates may be accommodated in the largest conference room, however the smaller groups are welcome with a minimum of 10 in their smallest venue therefore no matter how small or large, up to 600 delegates, you are all welcome at competitive rates.

A little History on conference venues in Pretoria and Pretoria as a city

PRETORIA was founded in 1855, by Marthinus Pretorius, a Voortrekker leader. He named what is now, a bustling metropolis after his father, Andries, who was instrumental in the Voortrekker victory over the Zulus in the monumental Battle of Blood River.

Today the area has been renamed the City of Tshwane, but the CBD still keeps the name of Pretoria (which continues to be the administrative capital of South Africa)
The Union Buildings, central to South African history now represent the change South Africa endured. While the city is a governmentally significant city, it is also alive with culture, housing museums, monuments, theatres, hotels and conference centres as well as being the hub of industry in the region.
Affectionately known as “Jacaranda City” because of the over 50 000 Jacaranda trees that line Pretoria’s streets and carpet the city in purple in October. The first Jacaranda trees were imported from Rio de Janeiro in 1888 and became Pretoria’s signature. It is alarming to hear that the Jacarandas are threatening to become extinct in Pretoria soon. One can’t imagine Pretoria without the purple sky-line and floor …

The general area is also home to many nature reserves, parks and gardens, including the National Botanical Gardens and many small parks scattered across this pretty city.

The rich history of the area is also captured within several museums within Pretoria, such as the Transvaal Museum, National Cultural History Museum and many solid, old buildings that have been preserved as gems of the past

As with many of South Africa’s conference venues, those in Pretoria are of a high standard, with custom-built venues designed to international specifications. Pretoria, being centrally located as it is, is very popular as a conference, seminar and congress destination.

Central to the Midrand, Irene and further afield, one need look no further than the multitude of conference venues available from small intimate venues to the large, top-class hotels and conference centres in and around Pretoria.
Some venues, perhaps un-tried and certainly worth considering are:

The Owl’s Nest Wedding & Conference Centre (Rayton Conference Venues)

Set in the natural bush of the area, in the rolling hills of the Maghaliesberg, with a serene country ambience, The Owl’s Nest Wedding and Conference Centre provides professionalism plus a home-from-home atmosphere for delegates in conference.

Diep in die Berg Conference and Function Centre (Wapadrand Conference Venues)

The renowned Diep in die Berg Conference Centre is the ideal facility for the out-of-the-office conference, training or Bosberaad. Their all-purpose conference centre offers 7 conference rooms which can accommodate up to a maximum of 450 delegates.

PROTEA HOTELS offer a variety of venues throughout the area including Pretoria, and Midrand, all of which have a standard to uphold and are therefore reliable, consistently good with excellent service.

At Irene there is IRENE COUNTRY LODGE and LERIBA LODGE AND SPA at Centurion. The latter has, in recent times been thoroughly refurbished to a fine standard.
