If you are considering venue options for hosting your corporate event, or events for that matter, near Cape Town throughout the course of 2022, Hazendal should definitely be on your list.

See, we believe a meaningful corporate event begins with a memorable venue. To that end, the Hazendal team has been hard at work establishing the estate as one of the top conferencing, launch and event destinations in the Western Cape. Combining state-of-the-art event facilities with a sublime setting in the scenic Stellenbosch Winelands.

We recognise the immensely important role that both location and logistics have to play when it comes to tailoring corporate gatherings that hit the mark. This is why we have put together an ace team of full-time event professionals who work hand-in-hand with every client to ensure that every event is impactful and yields solid ROI.

So, to get the ball rolling, here are the answers to some of the frequently asked questions we get about hosting a corporate event at Hazendal:

1. What size group can Hazendal accommodate?

The range of venues on Hazendal estate – from customisable contemporary spaces to outdoor venues that capitalise on the Winelands setting – ensure that our team of event planners can recommend the perfect location for conferences or business gatherings of all shapes and sizes.

This includes:

The Glasshouse

Beautifully situated next to the historic Homestead and bordered by stately oaks, The Glasshouse boasts an expansive glass structure that frames the beautiful surrounding gardens. This allows for year-round indoor-outdoor celebrations, ceremonies and receptions. Depending on the internal layout, it can accommodate between 40 and 100 guests.

Avant-Garde

The luxurious Avant-Garde venue offers an effortless blend of contemporary style and discreet opulence. Complete with chandeliers and a hand-painted ceiling, it is a magnificent setting for up to 80 guests.

The Grand Hall

The Grand Hall is a versatile blank canvas that gives corporate clients carte blanche to transform the space into a vision of their making. The glass floor-to-ceiling wall that runs the length of the hall offers an exceptional view of the gleaming steel cellar, adding a luxurious contemporary touch to the larger-than-life celebratory mood for up to 250 guests.

The Kraal

This heritage site once housed travellers’ oxen. It now offers a unique outdoor setting for al-fresco corporate events that will allow up to 120 guests the opportunity to soak up the views of the surrounding hills and plenty of fresh air.

If outdoors is something you’re keen on, the lawn opposite The Homestead can also be set up with a Bedouin tent to create a free-form space for summery, daytime events.
