Last year the wonderful advice given within these forums helped me organise a very successful conference in Cape Town. So - with 2011 looming, and with another conference to organise, I am going to once again to turn to the experts!
Basically I am considering a handful of locations within Africa and Zanzibar is one of them. So - please could I have some thoughts (good and bad!) on whether a) Zanzibar would be a good location and b) which venues/hotels you think would be best to consider.
Our event high level requirements are as follows:
around 60-70 attendees
want hotel accommodation and conference facility to be on same site
ideally with one large conference room to accommodate everyone and a couple of break out rooms
good on site catering
opportunity for a 'special evening' event/meal
This conference isn't a typical corporate jolly - so day times will be hard at work - but want scope to do something nice in evenings (2-3 evenings).
Thanks so much!
