The Venue

Uganda is an enthusiastic local partner for AFRICA 2021. International delegates and accompanying persons will meet in beautiful surroundings, for three days of sessions, preceded by workshops and training seminars, and followed by tours to hydro schemes. The conference and exhibition will take place at the Speke Resort Munyonyo, Lake Victoria, Uganda.

Speke Resort Munyonyo

It seems appropriate for international experts to be discussing hydropower and water storage at a venue named after the explorer who discovered the source of the River Nile. The venue is also located on the shores of Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa, and second largest freshwater lake in the world. The meeting rooms to be used for the AFRICA 2021 sessions, workshops, exhibition and social events are within a luxurious 5* complex, spanning about 100 ha.

Two state-of-the-art congress centres have been designed to blend discreetly with lush tropical vegetation and blossoming trees, vast lawns, elegant restaurants, an equestrian centre, a marina, and of course a panoramic view of the 68 000 km2 lake.

The venue provides all that is necessary for the smooth running of a major international event, and has plenty of experience of doing so. The resort is well accustomed to welcoming heads of state to Commonwealth meetings, and G77 Summits; the hospitality, security, efficient service and high quality cuisine reflect this well.

When not engaged in conference activities, or if staying on for a holiday, delegates can take advantage of an Olympic-sized swimming pool, nine restaurants and bars, fishing or bird-watching on the lake, riding at the equestrian centre, playing golf, or simply keeping fit in a conventional gym.

Bedrooms have been blocked at favourable rates for AFRICA 2021 participants; all are tastefully designed and decorated, and well equipped with free WiFi, facilities to make hot drinks, fridges, complimentary water, and large TVs. All offer splendid views across the gardens. We will also be reserving rooms at other properties owned by the Speke Group (a hotel, and a block of apartments), and complimentary transfers to and from the resort will be available. Full details of accommodation will be available when the registration process opens in December this year.
