Conference venues in Sandton
I have recently been doing a lot of travelling around South Africa, doing a variety of guest speeches on wildlife photography, specifically its growth in the Americas compared to Africa and Australia. I have been a free-lance photographer for over 10 years now and have done work for national geographic, discover channel and the BBC. Recently there has been a huge amount of wildlife photography conferences around South Africa so I decided to pack up my bags in Arizona and come down to South Africa where I would attend as many wildlife conferences as I could.
So I have travelled to the Western Cape, Durban, Northern Province and now finally arrived in Sandton. Having experienced a variety of venues I can honestly say that the conference venues in Sandton are definitely a far higher standard than anywhere else in South Africa. All these venues are custom built and designed by some of the top architects in the world and are up to international standards, sometimes actually going far beyond international standards in my opinion. All the facilities will cater to small or large meetings, seminars, functions and corporate events.
2 weeks ago I went to the Wanderes Club that has eleven conference venues, all of which vary in capacity depending on your conference’s needs. All of the rooms have natural lighting which is ideally suited for all types of conferences and meetings. This venue is exceptionally well managed and every staff member is willing to help out and take care of your needs. From set-up to breakdown, SilvaSale Events professionally manages any event, from weddings to product launches, birthday parties to conferences and bar mitzvahs to exhibitions. They offer a variety of venues, state-of-the-art decor and equipment as well as customized menus to make each event unique and successful.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to the Radisson Blu hotel. I really think that this is the best designed and well-equipped conference venue in Sandton. This sleek sophisticated venue is perfect for all forms of corporate meetings and even weddings. Every single staff member has had extensive training which allows this hotel to guarantee 100% satisfaction. Something rarely seen at hotels these days.
There is a designated conference venue team team that are there to assist you with any problems you might have with the equipment provided. Some of the equipment includes faxing and photocopying. Free, high-speed, wireless Internet. They have a variety of conference rooms, the biggest spans 320 square metres and furnished with a variety of exquisite eye catching furniture.
