Best Place to Host Conferences at Hartbeespoort Dam

When it comes to the hosting of conferences, our Hartbeespoort Dam-based Villa Paradiso should be your first choice. With a conference area consisting of no fewer than six venues, all well-equipped with stylish interiors, we’re able to cater to the meeting, conference, seminar, training and workshop venue requirements of companies in Gauteng.

The venues are already equipped with world-class audio and visual equipment, with a full range of catering services available from our hotel. The conference centre is completely separate from the hotel, in order to provide the delegates with private meeting and recreational space. With a beautiful setting, the venue provides for a tranquil environment in which high-end discussions, symposiums and conferences can take place. When it comes to successful planning and hosting of conferences, we at Villa Paradiso in the Hartbeespoort Dam region provide for superior quality, whether in terms of the venue sizes, layout options, equipment or location.

Our conference venue can seat up to 180 delegates per event and with several venues available, we can cater to numerous events on the same day. In addition, our smaller rooms enable break-away group discussions, which form an important part of larger seminars and conferences.

The rooms have large executive tables and elegant chairs. With broadband high-speed internet access available, you will be able to host video conferences, in addition to your on-site conference events. Our coordinators will assist with the logistics, such as audio-visual equipment, power points and catering to the culinary requirements of your delegates. With fewer details to be concerned about, you can focus on other areas of importance in planning and hosting your corporate event.

The venue is a mere 55-minute drive from O.R. International Airport, 30-minute drive from Sandton, 20 minutes from Pretoria Central and 20 minutes from Lanseria International Airport. We thus have an exceptionally central location for every type of corporate retreat.
