The conference venue was the brand-new conference centre of UCT’s Graduate School of Business (GSB) in the V&A Waterfront – the most visited tourist attraction in Africa! The GSB campus was built as a prison in the 1800’s and is considered one of Cape Town major landmarks. Since 2019, the facilities include a state-of-the-art conference and exhibition centre overlooking the historic harbor and Table Mountain.
The V&A Waterfront offers plenty of in- and outdoor shopping and entertainment venues in a cosmopolitan atmosphere, as well as many of the city’s best restaurants and museums. The area surrounding the GSB campus hosts numerous hotels and offers very pleasant and safe opportunities to experience African cultures in a beautiful setting.
