Great news for MEI’s major conference location

It has come as no great surprise to us that Tripadvisor has named Cape Town as the best destination in the world, beating Australia's Sydney into the second spot, with Machu Picchu coming in third, Paris in fourth and Rio de Janeiro in fifth, while London picked up eighth position.

Table Mountain and Robben Island were named as Cape Town highlights in the awards, based on millions of user reviews.

The city has seen a massive boost in tourism numbers over the last couple of months, with The V&A Waterfront seeing more than three million visitors during December, Table Mountain Aerial Cableway attracting more than 100,000 visitors throughout the past month, and the City Sightseeing Bus running at full capacity during December.

So if you are attending one of our 4 conferences in Cape Town this year, do try to set aside some time before or after the event for some serious sight-seeing. It really is a wonderful location- almost as good as Cornwall!!
