  Our Block at the Conference Centre
by Bwana_Brown

The Eskom (Electricity Commission of South Africa) conference centre at Sandton was a sprawling complex of two storey housing blocks centred around large conference rooms, a dining hall and an outdoor swimming pool and entertainment complex. The rooms were fairly small but were clean and comfortable, and the price was not too steep either as I remember.

Unique Qualities: Sandton itself was only a few miles away and there was a large multi-level shopping mall located there, with all kinds of speciality stores just like in any Western mall. The conference organizers went out of their way to put on a great Braai (BBQ) and entertainment for the conference guests from all over the world. The photo shows me in front of our ground-level room.

Directions: On the outskits of Sandton, between Joburg and Pretoria.
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
