protea hotels or tambo

AFRICA - The Protea Hotel, based at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport, is to unveil its new conferencing facilties at the end of June.
 
The Protea Hotel OR Tambo Airport is part of Africa’s largest hotel group, which has 120 properties throughout South Africa and seven other African countries including Zambia, Nigeria, Namibia and Kenya.
 
The hotel’s new facilities will consist of nine naturally lit event spaces catering up to 300 delegates. Before the renovation the hotel had only four meeting rooms and one boardroom.
 
The new facilities include AV equipment such as mounted data projectors, electronically-controlled drop down screens and built in PA Systems as standard. The conference area also has large entrance bays to allow for exhibitions and car shows, and the second largest space can be split into two separate areas.
 
The banqueting facilities have dedicated kitchens, assisting the smooth running of working breakfasts and cocktail evenings.
 
Hotel GM Gawie Nel said that in the hotel’s quest for sustainability it was also using a Vivreau water purification system to provide bottled water to delegates with the aim of reducing the hotels’ and clients’ carbon impact.
