About Sun City Resort
Nothing beats the high level of interaction and collaboration that comes with meeting face to face and off site. The opportunities to connect, engage and create that conference offer promote teamwork, productivity and performance.
Since it was established in the 1980’s, Sun International’s Sun City in the North West Province has been entrenched as a preferred destination for corporate conferencing. It’s not difficult to understand why. Only a 90-minute drive from Pretoria and two hours from Johannesburg, Sun City combines excellent accommodation, conferencing facilities, restaurants and leisure activities in the idyllic setting.
Sun City is a place that never sleeps, with an array of experiences available to delegates after hours which make conferencing at Sun City unique; from hot-air balloon rides to game drives at the nearby Pilansberg National Park to beach parties at the Valley of Waves, socialising at the Shebeen, beer tasting at sunset at the Brew Monkey, dinner at the Wallow, gaming at the casino and reveling on the dance floor at the night club. When it comes to conferencing with a twist, Sun City is hard to match.
The resort has carefully crafted its facilities and services to meet today’s business travellers. Taking its conferencing and conventions offering to the next level is the focus on providing consolidated conference experiences. Companies don’t only have access to a range of well-equipped meeting rooms and conference venues, but they can also add morale building and leisure activities to their bespoke conference packages. All the senses are catered for, from state-of-the-art technologies and facilities, to sporting and leisure activities.
The choices are diverse; playing golf on two world class golf courses, thrilling activities such as Drift Trikes, Hovercrafts and a 4×4 Grizzly Quad Challenge at the new Adrenaline Exteme; water sports at Waterworld, rejuvenating treatments at the spa and confidence-testing water rides at the Valley of Waves.
The iconic Entertainment Centre re-launched as Sun Central during November 2016 and will boast an optimised convention centre on the upper level as well as a suite of other experiences.
“Our focus is on creating flexible and holistic conference packages, bolstered by new modern facilities, to ensure that Sun City retains its place as a premier convention destination in South Africa,” says Andrew Irumba, Sun City Marketing Manager.
