This month, it is a pleasure to post our impressions from the show floor of Meetings Africa. Our pre-event visit to Cape Town clearly showed us a modern and highly developed city with facilities capable and suitable to host most wonderful events.

The modern Sandton Convention Centre proved to be an ideal venue for the event. The easy access from Johannesburg’s O.R Tambo International Airport to Sandton with Gautrain – the cities’ clean and modern rail in just 12 minutes (4 Stations) leaves you with only 8 walking minutes to Sandton Convention Centre. Upon completion of the current roadwork you will find many highly suitable hotels in easy walking distance to the Convention Centre.

Meetings Africa has proven to be a highlight for anyone planning events in the Southern African region and is sure to grow its influence on the African continent. We highly recommend attending the 2018 edition of the show!

In our upcoming edition of MICE:destination we will report about our experiences before and after Meetings Africa in detail – including our post-event visit to Entabeni Safari Conservancy.

In this NEWSFLASH we update you on the Cape Town International Convention Centre extension project and on the extended support of South African National Convention Bureau and the regional Convention Bureaus.

See the updates on record setting conference trends in Prague, Czech Republic and in Berlin, Germany and we’re also updating you on the extension on the visa fee waiver scheme for visitors from 21 countries in Thailand.

And of course, we’re also looking forward to IMEX in Frankfurt. IMEX has successfully tested Zenvoy networking services which will be rolled out for the show in May – don’t forget to apply to the hosted buyer programme if you are an eligible European buyer!

As usual, we warmly invite you to share this edition with your colleagues!
