Meet Stellenbosch 2024 | Shaping The Future: Trends and Insights For Tomorrow

Thu Jul 18, 09:00 - Fri Jul 19, 17:00

Jan Mouton Learning Centre


Meet Stellenbosch is an initiative by Visit Stellenbosch and the Central Events and Conferencing Office (CECO) in collaboration with the Cape Town and Western Cape Convention Bureau (a division of WESGRO) and Stellenbosch Network in order to highlight Stellenbosch as a Business Events Destination. 

Meet Stellenbosch 2024, under the umbrella theme, ‘‘Shaping the Future: Trends and Insights for Tomorrow”, will focus on the exploration of the various factors and forces that are shaping the world of business events in the various domains such as technology and innovation, knowledge economy, regenerative, and more.

The theme suggests that to shape the future effectively, one must stay informed about emerging trends and gain insights into the potential consequences and opportunities they may bring. It encourages proactive thinking and actions to shape a desired future rather than passively accepting what comes.

Join us for a transformative experience with industry leaders, ground-breaking insights, and networking opportunities that will shape the future of business events.
