Cape Town rated top destination for 2014

With Comminution '14 less than 3 months away, and Process Mineralogy '14 taking place at the end of the year, it is good to see that Cape Town has been ranked as the top holiday destination for the year by British newspaper The Guardian and the US's The New York Times.

The news was welcomed by Western Cape tourism's Alan Winde on Monday. "This is great news for our city's tourism sector and excellent publicity for our destination," he said in a statement. "These awards will no doubt help to elevate Cape Town to the top of travellers' bucket lists."

Cape Town topped The Guardian's list of holiday hotspots for the year. The newspaper also emphasised the city's election as World Design Capital 2014, and mentioned the trendy cafes and restaurants to be found there.

"I am confident that our inclusion in the travel lists of these top publications, coupled with the World Design Capital, will help us to achieve our aim of drawing a record number of travellers to our beautiful city in 2014," Winde said. 

Let's hope that a good proportion of them are MEI Conference delegates. If you are attending any of our forthcoming events at the beautiful Vineyard Hotel, try to stay on for a few days and savour some of the delights of the Cape. Contact us for suggestions if you are new to the area. You may wish to take part on our guided hike up Table Mountain, which takes place after each conference.
