Many venues within Pretoria are equipped to be versatile in terms of the events they can accommodate and offer conference and wedding packages that are competitive and fairly inclusive. We took a look at some of the most picturesque wedding venues in Pretoria that make for equally attractive and functional conference venues.
Diep in die Berg
Diep in Die Berg sounds like a mountain retreat which might require a 4×4 for access but is in fact far on the contrary. This Tuscan styled venue in Wapadrand Pretoria is an all-purpose venue which is able to cater for weddings, functions, celebrations as well as conferences and corporate events.
There are seven conference rooms and a boardroom, which can also be used as a holding room for esteemed guests. The main conference venue can host 450 delegates cinema style, whilst the other six smaller venues can be used as breakaway venues or booked for smaller conferences. Apart from the conference venues, Diep in die Berg also has a restaurant and bar on site which serve as beautiful lunch or post-event cocktails venue. The restaurant’s industrial feel is clean and inviting with exposed piping and filament globes for an old-school-cool feel.

Monte De Dios
Monte de Dios in Zwavelpoort is an exquisite Spanish Equestrian Villa with an impressive mountainous backdrop. It can cater for small intimate events with as few as 20 guests to large corporate conferences of up to 400 delegates. There are only 6 suites on-site however so it is preferable for a full day conference where overnight accommodation isn’t required.
The conference packages can be tailored to suit your specific requirements and they also offer AV and technical support along with the latest conference equipment through their preferred supplier, so you can rest assured they know the venue’s requirements and acoustics well. If load shedding strikes, Monte de Dios is equipped with a backup generator and has a high-speed wireless internet connection – essentials for a successful conference.
