Why Cape Town?

Cape Town is not only a major conference hub but also a desired travel destination. With AOW leading the way for investment and business development in Africa's oil and gas sector, it only makes sense that we're hosted in the city known as the gateway to Africa. 

With 360-degree views from Table Mountain to white sandy beaches, Cape Town has stunning natural beauty, as well as the Cape winelands, fabulous cuisines and a mix of culture that makes it a major attraction for the global community. It is therefore no surprise that Cape Town is ranked among the top cities around the world.
