Via Africa Conferencing


Our company was born out of an incredible love for Africa and wanting to share it with the world. VAC was originally established in 2009 under the name Going Africa Conferencing and later became Via Africa Conferencing when it incorporated new management and ownership and has grown from strength to strength over the years. We pride ourselves on being the best at what we do while still keeping the personal warmth in our business. We strive to make each and every delegate feel at home – from the moment they register until they return home. We believe this sets us apart from the larger companies. Via Africa Conferencing is designed to put your business needs first while still maintaining a personal and friendly service to individual delegates. We will work closely with you to create a suitable and enjoyable experience for your organisation; sourcing and identifying top destinations that will correspond with both your interests and your budget.
