The Willows Conference Centre



On the edge of the most beautiful stretch of Indian Ocean, The Willows Conference & Events Centre is a venue with one of the best views in Algoa Bay. Located only 15 km from the city of Port Elizabeth in the beautiful Eastern Cape province, the centre forms part of The Willows Holiday Resort. This 3-star graded resort offers self-catering accommodation units, as well as a large caravan park & private camping sites. This setting creates the perfect backdrop to make your wedding, function or conference a very special & memorable event. Visit The Willows Holiday Resort accommodation page for more information about the various types of accommodation on offer.

The centre consists of three venues, namely the Main Hall, the Function Room, & the Meeting Room. The Main Hall is very spacious, with a high ceiling & can accommodate up to 300 wedding reception guests or 400 conference delegates. The Function Room extends onto a veranda that overlooks the ocean. The space can be divided into 3 smaller breakaway rooms by glass partitioning. This venue also flows into a lapa area with braai facilities for more informal gatherings. The Function Room can accommodate up to 80 people. The Meeting Room is perfect for very small groups of up to 12 people.

  • All conference packages include the venue hire, a big screen television, flipchart, pens, notepads, water & mints.
  • A PA system, DVD player & extension cords are available for hire.
  • Tables & chairs will be set up according to your conference needs, as well as the number of delegates.
  • A range of teambuilding options are available to suit individual needs & requirements of groups.

The venues are suitable for any kind of party or function. We also do beach & outdoor wedding ceremonies. Our ideal location enables you to have your beach ceremony only a few steps away from the reception venue. The venues can be set up and decorated according to your needs & preferences.

Our in-house catering department will see to all your catering needs. Food choices can be selected from our various menus. A cash bar is also available on request.
