The official conference dinner will take place at Gold Restaurant. The restaurant is located close to one of Cape Town’s biggest attractions, the V&A Waterfront.

Discover  GOLD in Cape Town. From the moment you walk through the doors into the aged brick interior, with its ancient doors, wooden beams and iron pillars, you will feel the heartbeat of a unique African restaurant in Cape Town. GOLD restaurant will take you on a taste safari from Cape Malay to African Cuisine – from Cape Town to Timbuktu with its set 14 course menu served at your table

There will not be a shuttle to and from Gold. Due to delegates staying at various hotels and guesthouses, from the CBD, the Waterfront to the suburbs, it would be best to arrange for a taxi for your evening's transportation.
