The Speke Resort Munyonyo offers a variety of splendid venues for social events, conveniently located within the same large site, but with different surroundings and character.
After registration on the morning of Sunday 9 July, delegates and accompanying persons have an option to take part in a half-day local excursion, to see some of the most important sights in Kampala. They will include the Mengo-Kabaka Palace and Lake, and various monuments, places of worship and cultural centres.
Lunch will be taken together, and a boat trip on Lake Victoria is provisionally planned. The trip will depart around 11.00 hrs, and return to the Speke Resort in the mid-afternoon, so that some of the leisure facilities there can be enjoyed.
The Stables restaurant offers an ideal venue for the Speakers’ and Chairpersons’ dinner, before the conference begins. It has a large decked terrace, overlooking a lawn and scenic gardens with blossoming trees.
The Welcome Reception is planned to take place on a vast lawn, directly overlooking Lake Victoria; apéritifs will be followed by a buffet supper and musical entertainment.
On the second afternoon of the conference, the exhibition area will remain open into the early evening for a Networking Party, giving participants extra time to meet exhibitors and establish new business contacts. Drinks and light snacks will be served.
The AFRICA 2023 Farewell Gala Dinner will provide a chance to discover another area of the resort. Apéritifs will be taken beside an olympic-sized swimming pool, before dinner, with entertainment, in a semi-outdoor venue surrounded by palm trees.
