Conference delegates embracing the Cape West Coast
Comprising Swartland, Namaqua West Coast, Peninsula, Bergrivier, and the Cederberg, the Cape West Coast region is an established locale for leisure tourism. Visitors flock to the region for its annual display of magnificent wild flowers, regular whale sightings, wine farms and cellars, birdwatching and golfing.
Quaint seaside towns such as Langebaan, Elands Bay, Yzerfontein and Paternoster offer upmarket accommodation in a unique setting, while towns such as Darling, Riebeek-Kasteel and Clanwilliam has retained a small-town charm while catering to the needs of seasonal visitors.
In recent years, business travellers and meeting or conference delegates have embraced a move away from the frenetic pace of city life, and converged on the Cape West Coast, where nature offers inspiration and eases tension.

Approximately 100km north-east of Cape Town, lying below the Kasteelberg is the historic wine estate of Allesverloren.

Allesverloren is well equipped to help organisers hold a successful conference, team building event or product launch. Some of the state-of-the-art equipment available includes a powerful audio system, complete with hand-held and wireless lapel microphones and a DVD player. The venue also offers a data projector with sound and a dedicated screen.
The Athene Conference Centre at Club Mykonos can cater for up to 500 delegates. Supported by the Bouzouki restaurant, it is capable of handling your conference requirements with Greek hospitality and Mediterranean flair. Wi-Fi, audio-visual equipment and exhibition space are all included. The resort is inspired by the Greek town of Mykonos, and its incredible architecture and festive atmosphere ensure that delegates enjoy more than just the business aspect of their visit.
!Khwa ttu offers you the unique experience of being introduced to the world of the San people.

When the business of the day is concluded, delegates and business professionals can unwind by exploring the fascinating heritage and culture of the Cape West Coast. A guided tour by descendants of the San people is a must-see, and includes a ride on an open vehicle through the landscape viewing game, and a visit to a replica traditional village for fascinating demonstrations of ancient tools and other extraordinary aspects of the San’s traditional way of life. The awe-inspiring display of wildflowers is another sight that can’t be missed, while many visitors are keen to explore the small fishing towns that dot the region, and offer authentic culinary delights. The casino and nightclub situated in Langebaan attract visitors who really want to let their hair down, while the many spas and wellness retreats offer indulgence and relaxation at affordable prices.
