And I am delighted to recommend the destination to you! Please see our detailed coverage. If you consider the destination, I warmly recommend attending Meetings Africa taking place at Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton, Johannesburg to you! The event is extremely well organized and allows you to connect with all relevant partners – not only in South Africa, but in the southern region of the African continent.

Another trip brought me to the city of Prague, Czech Republic – one of my favourite cities. It’s a pleasure to share the experiences and our knowledge about Prague’s great venues and hotels with you! Prague is another hot recommendation for your events.
