Cape Town, South Africa

Past North South Conference

A melting pot of cultural diversity

18 - 25 April 2018

South Africa’s southern city of Cape Town is proudly multicultural. It is renowned for its mix of determined pioneers – Afrikaner descendants of the original Dutch colonists, the ANC and the governing National Party through the Apartheid period, descendants of European Jewish immigrants and more recently, Xhosa migrants who have arrived from the Eastern Cape.

This melting pot of cultural diversity makes Cape Town a vibrant and exciting African city, offering fabulous cuisine, interesting museums and a layered history.

Set between the imposing Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town’s rugged natural beauty showcases itself at every turn.

Travel to the Table Mountain’s summit by cable car for stunning wide vistas, and visit the tumultuous Cape Point where South Africa’s surly currents collide. Our agenda included a private tour of Robben Island and the notorious prison where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 incarcerated years.


Social Agenda

Our conference structures numerous social events to allow for networking in relaxed settings. We encourage all delegates to attend the social events as the information exchange is deemed invaluable by many participants as well as it being an opportunity for you to discover more of this exciting conference location.

Academic Program and Accreditation

All  sessions are conducted by practitioners and leading academics. However, our program structure is unique to CPE Conferences. Over the last 20 years we have adopted a model that allows us to accommodate local and VIP speakers whom, due to professional demands were unable to confirm their availability, would otherwise be unable to share their international perspective.

In addition to these sessions our Cape Town Conference held multiple academic field activities, including one to Robben Island, which allows our delegates to obtain additional professional knowledge through engagement and unique location based excursions.
