Dedicated to conferencing: Ibhayi Town Lodge offers all you need for an effective conference

BY GRAEME LUND - MAY 6, 2016

There are quite a number of conferencing venues spread across the Eastern Cape and their managers are always under pressure to differentiate their offerings by giving delegates memorable experiences.

While the choice of venue ultimately depends on the kind of event, there are certain variables that are always considered before a decision is made. Establishing the size of the conference will be the starting point when choosing a venue and another key variable for a good conference venue is location.

Ibhayi Town Lodge, which can be found at 144 Main Road in Walmer, Port Elizabeth, is well-situated, offers a variety of venues of different sizes and is geared towards servicing the conferencing industry.

The Lodge offers five well-equipped and flexibly-furnished business meeting rooms that can accommodate between 40 and 70 delegates cinema-style in each venue and there are 24 luxury accommodation suites to accommodate delegates for events scheduled for longer than a single day.

There is wireless internet access available throughout the Lodge, secure off-street parking and Ibhayi Town Lodge, which is only five minutes from the Port Elizabeth International Airport, offers transfers by prior arrangement.

The venues have data projectors, white screens and flip charts while pens, note books, bottled water and mints will be made available to each delegate.

Ibhayi Town Lodge is also home to Leo’s Bistro, who will ensure that the conference is a gastronomic success too. Your delegates can expect to be served a mid-morning tea and coffee with a light snack; a two-course lunch - served with fresh rolls and garden salad, while an afternoon tea and coffee comes with homemade biscuits.

The lodge’s smallest venue is capable of accommodating 30 delegates in cinema-style, 15 delegates in U-shape and 16 in school room configuration. The largest venue can accommodate 30, 45 and 70 delegates in U-shape, school-room and cinema-style respectively.

What differentiates Ibhayi Town Lodge from other venues is that this is an upmarket conferencing venue with well-appointed accommodation, excellent food and good service.  Being part of the greater Lion Roars Hotels Portfolio means that this venue can draw on a wealth of knowledge, support and experience.

For your delegates’ post-conference relaxation, you will be happy to know that the lodge is within reach of the various tourist attractions offered in the Bay as well as within reach of the surrounding national parks and game reserves.
