Conference Venues Pretoria
Memorable, Landmark Conference Venue in Pretoria
Although there a numerous conference venues in Pretoria, our choice of venues will ensure that you and your delegates have a memorable, landmark meeting, situated close to a couple of South Africa’s historical and architectural landmarks – the famous Voortrekker Monument and Fort Schanskop.
Our conference venues are ideally situated a stone’s throw from Pretoria city centre and adjacent to major highways for easy access to and from Johannesburg and other surrounding Gauteng towns. Access to and from OR Tambo International Airport via the freeway system is also direct and close to both locations, convenient for visitors from elsewhere.
Alternatively, the recently completed Gautrain rapid rail system enables commuters from Johannesburg and the airport to reach the city even faster than by road – a far cry from the time when the Voortrekkers reached the area by ox wagon and the Boers and British forces engaged one another during the Anglo-Boer war.
Before the outbreak of the second Anglo-Boer war, four defensive forts were built, of one of which was Schanskop, which was handed over to the government of the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek (ZAR) in 1897, two years prior to the outbreak of the war. The original intention was to construct eight forts, but only four were erected due to lack of funds.
At the time, the fort had sophisticated facilities. A paraffin generator supplied electricity, a telephone and telegraph was installed to aid communication with the government and running water, sourced from the Apies River, was pumped from a pumping station in the Fountains Valley, below the koppie on which the fort was built.
On the hill near the fort, we’ve located our De Kroon Kamer, which is extremely popular as both a wedding and conference venue. The building was designed to blend with the natural surroundings and vegetation and offers magnificent views over the city.
Various conference rooms on the premises host delegate numbers between 10 and 120, with ample, secure parking facilities. Seating options include boardroom, schoolroom, U-shape, cinema, herringbone and banquet configurations.
For larger business groups of 20 – 800, our Amfi Function Centre just below the Amphitheatre’s stage, provides the perfect setting within the tranquil Voortrekker Monument Nature Reserve. The well maintained gardens are glorious, surrounded by natural vegetation, which includes many indigenous species typical of the area.
Our multipurpose conference facilities consist of 6 conference rooms and a boardroom. All packages provide a registration table, flip chart, overhead projector and screen, breakaway rooms, mints and water, your choice of seating configurations and a private LAN and Wi-Fi network. A network fax, network printer and network broadband internet access is offered as an additional option.
Other optional extras include video equipment, data projector/LCD recording system, lapel and cordless microphones and a use of a business centre, from where faxes may be sent and photocopies made. Allowing delegates to unwind and mingle after the day’s business has been concluded, conference hosts may include a traditional braai or sundowner in our boma to conclude proceedings.
We’re happy to customise packages according to requirements, whilst our standard packages on offer consist of half or full day or are fully inclusive. Our experienced conference coordinator looks forward to assisting business with all bookings, dietary requirements and menu choices to ensure that we offer your premium destination amongst the conference venues in Pretoria.
