Where Next has managed this event for the past 15 years. iWeek is South Africa’s leading annual internet industry conference, and has been held since 2001, alternatively in Cape Town and Johannesburg. It brings together all of South Africa’s major internet organisations for a series of presentations, panel discussions, workshops, training sessions, exhibition and social events.
In 2016, this week-long event, hosting over 500 delegates, was held at Wanderers Club & Silva Sale events. This encompassed a partner and sponsor’s exhibition of 24 exhibitors, a daily plenary session, training sessions running in six alternative streams simultaneously, as well as a gala dinner, whiskey tasting, themed award evening and an interactive drumming event.
Where Next was completely hands-on throughout this event, co-ordinating daily details, including controlling a complex accommodation listing (guests at four different hotels and guesthouses); handling the logistics of daily transfers between the hotels, the venue and the airport; managing the registration process, and ensuring the special events and dinners ran smoothly and professionally.
