Spier has possibly the nicest staff I have encountered at a venue (Aside from Champagne Resort, but that’s not in Cape Town). They have a brilliant and well laid out venue that can host a conference and concurrent exhibition. A number of venues are available from the Historical, Restored manor House to the 400 seater conference centre
What else can you do here? Oh not much, just walk with Cheetahs, amazing raptor shows and experience possibly the largest buffet you will ever see and eat in a tree at Moyo…These unique elements make this venue a top contender on the Conference Venues in Cape Town – 2023 list.
6. Vineyard Hotel
Another gem of a venue located in the southern suburbs. Whilst not quite as “cosmopolitan” as say the top 2 venues in terms of location, It is located in the green lush suburb of Newlands, bordering the Cavendish Square shopping precinct. The Vineyard has well geared facilities and staff that actually seem to care. While you are there try the Spa downstairs…world class.
Each floor of the conference and banqueting venue can accommodate up to 280 guests and can be converted into 3 smaller rooms as required. We have and will continue to have great experiences at this venue which is why we added it to our Conference Venues in Cape Town – 2023 list.
7. The Old Biscuit Mill
Situated in the heart of Woodstock, the Old Biscuit Mill is a central and convenient venue to host your conference. Light and bright spaces are fully adaptable so you can ensure the success of your next event.
8. The Bay Hotel
The Bay Hotel is on Camps Bay drive, on the beach in arguably the coolest hippest suburb in Cape Town. It is surrounded by superb restaurants and relaxed bars. It is also close the the CBD, V&A Waterfront and the South peninsula is easily accessible from Camps bay along the coastal road.
The Rotunda at the Bay can accommodate up to 500 people and there are a range of various sized smaller breakaway venues.
9. The V&A Waterfront
The V&A Waterfront hosts a variety of conferences, meetings, and exhibition spaces. This famous destination icon is the perfect place to create a curated experience for your next event. No list of Conference Venues in Cape Town – 2023 would be complete without listing the V&A Waterfront as a premium location.
This list is not an exhaustive list of what’s on offer in Cape Town. In my experience as a contractor, that often installs exhibits at these venues, they are all well-geared and well organised to host conferences and exhibitions. I will be doing further posts on other great venues in and around Cape Town
CTICC – The venue of choice for large scale events.
One of Africa’s leading venues for MICE events. The CTICC speaks for itself with regard to world-class quality.
