Conferencing in JHB
When planning your next conference in South Africa’s business hub of Johannesburg it’s important to consider what kind of meeting experience might best cater to your needs. Do you want the glitz of an upmarket hotel, or perhaps the opportunity to get some fresh air between discussions and see some wildlife at one of Jozi’s lodges. Neither? Then perhaps the at-home feel and intimacy of one of the city’s guesthouses is what you’re looking for…
