How to choose the best conference centre near Fourways

Choosing a conference centre near Fourways for your organisation’s event can seem like a huge task, but by the time you’ve read this article, you’ll know exactly what to look for! Here are our top tips:

  • Set a budget: The list of conference venue possibilities is endless, from cruise ships to museums, dedicated conference centres or holiday resorts. Once you’ve determined your conference budget, you’ll know what’s realistic for your event.
  • Equipment checklist: The conference venue should have all the conference equipment you need, from Internet access and projectors to LCD screens and computers.
  • Space: Some conference venues in Gauteng are merely guesthouses that transform a restaurant into a conference venue for your event. If you’ve got a large number of people attending the conference, make sure they have dedicated halls and meeting rooms.
  • Refreshments: People expect to have coffee breaks and lunch at the conference venue. Find out if the venue can cater for snacks, tea breaks and lunch.
  • Location: Do your executives want to be close to Gauteng, but away from the busy city? The best conference venues are usually situated on the outskirts of the cities so that they are easy to get to without spending hours on travel.
  • Conference co-ordinator: The best conference venues will assign a conference co-ordinator to you. This person will take a brief, supply you with menus and ask what type of requirements you have for the event (you shouldn’t be expected to arrange everything from the invitation to the dessert yourself).
