With its first-world infrastructure, balmy climate and breathtaking scenery – not to mention a highly favourable exchange rate and a booming business tourism industry – South Africa is an ideal location for international conferences, conventions, trade shows and symposiums.

The country has well over 1 000 world-class conference and exhibition venues, ranging from intimate bush hideaways to large-scale, hi-tech convention centres. All of these offer a wealth of leisure activities, side-tours and events: from walking with elephants to first-hand experiences of African culture to luxury shopping and relaxation. Take your pick from a selection of over 120 of South Africa’s top venues, arranged by province (with special treatment for Johannesburg and Cape Town).
