Business Traveler (USA) - - GATHERING PLACES -

With easy flight con­nec­tions out of Jo­han­nes­burg, and dozens of re­sorts across all price brack­ets, this easy-go­ing trop­i­cal is­land has long been a pop­u­lar choice for con­fer­ences and in­cen­tives. While most re­sorts of­fer their own in-house con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties, there are a hand­ful of larger con­ven­tion cen­ters sit­u­ated across the is­land. The Swami Vivekananda Con­fer­ence Cen­tre in Pailles is the largest on the is­land and can host up to 3,500 del­e­gates at one time.

There is a be­wil­der­ing ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able to keep meet­ing at­ten­dees en­ter­tained from dawn to dusk. Tourism in­fra­struc­ture is well es­tab­lished, and ef­fi­cient tour oper­a­tors are used to work­ing with large groups.

The is­land can lack‘wow’fac­tor, with many likely to have al­ready vis­ited the is­land on an­other in­cen­tive, or on va­ca­tion. Re­sorts can be busy, and ex­pen­sive, in peak sea­son.
