Accommodation Booking Information
It is recommended that delegates to the SEMC 2019 International Conference make their accommodation reservations with the Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel (part of the Tsogo Sun Hotels Group), which will be the venue of the Conference. The Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel is a world-class establishment in the heart of the City of Cape Town, with breathtaking views of Table Mountain, Table Bay and Robben Island, and only a few minutes from the Watefront, a popular tourist and shopping area. Special accommodation rates have been negotiated with this hotel. For those delegates who prefer alternative accommodation, we have also secured special rates with the Vineyard Hotel, another world-class establishment in the leafy suburb of Newlands to the south of the City of Cape Town. Both the Cape Sun and the Vineyard are 4-star hotels.
A fixed number of rooms in each of these hotels has been blocked out for uptake by SEMC 2019 participants until 15 June 2019, after which the rooms will be released to the general public and allocated on an availability basis. Thus to be guaranteed a room, it is important for SEMC 2019 delegates to make their reservations before this date. Bookings must be made directly with the hotels, quoting the reference “SEMC 2019 Conference″. Only the booking forms provided via the links below should be used. Both hotels offer the option of single or double occupancy of rooms. For the Vineyard, delegates will be able to choose between three types of rooms (Courtyard Facing Standard; Courtyard Facing Deluxe; Mountain Facing).
It is expected that all SEMC 2019 delegates will stay either at the Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel (where the Conference sessions will take place), or at the Vineyard Hotel. These two hotels are the only ones which have been formally appointed to provide accommodation for SEMC 2019 delegates. A coach service (mornings and evenings only) will be provided between the Vineyard Hotel and the Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel. It will not be possible to arrange transport for those delegates who choose to stay elsewhere.
