By consistently striving to exceed expectations and delivering on our mandate Prestige Conferences has cultivate a long list of happy clients
“ It was rightfully declared as the most well run and “Best Ever IHHA Conference” in the organisations 35 years history. All records were broken, as far as number of delegates, number of exhibitors, income and workshop and technical tour attendances. The conference was widely lauded for the excellent content, good organisation and great social events. Most importantly, the financial aspects such as the budgeting and spending against budget etc. were all very well managed. Actual income and costs came very close to the figures projected in the initial Draft Indicative Budget drafted by Prestige Conferences. Our expectations as a conference planning committee were exceeded. We are 100% satisfied with their delivery and happy to recommend them. “
Brian Monakali, IHHA Chair

“I had the pleasure in working with Prestige Conferences as a Board member of South African Monitoring and Evaluation Association since October 2016. The SAMEA appointed Prestige Conferences to organize SAMEA Biennial Conferences in 2013 and 2015 in Sandton as well as capacity development workshops in 2014 in East London. Based on their outstanding performance in Conference organization and management SAMEA appointed Prestige Conferences through a tender process for a further three-year period until to 2019 December 2019 to organize its 2017 and 2019 Biennial SAMEA Conferences and off Conference year workshops in 2018.
Their support in procuring reliable service providers for various support functions required by the conference and conference venue was indispensable. Based on my positive experience in dealing with Prestige Conferences’ Director and his team, I would gladly make use of this company’s services again and would recommend Prestige Conferences to organize any major conference or event without any reservations.”
Victor Naidu, SAMEA Conference 2017 – Conference Chair
“In the lead-up to the conference the team from Prestige Conference was always supportive, but additionally also acted proactively to ensure that critical conference planning milestones were met. They were able to readily adapt to changes from the conference steering committee side, inevitable given the various co-hosts involved in the planning of the conference. Their support in procuring reliable service providers for various support functions required by the conference and conference venue was indispensable.
On-site during the conference, a professional and supportive appearance was maintained at all times, with all requests dealt with in an effective and efficient manner. Feedback received from the conference attendees also stands testimony to their positive experience in dealing with Prestige Conferences.
We would gladly make use of this company’s services again and would readily recommend Prestige Conferences to organise any major conference or event without any reservations.”

“For the first time the LOC engaged the services of a PCO and we acknowledge and appreciate the fantastic services rendered by the team at Prestige Conferences.
To the Prestige team who handled all the online registrations, hotel bookings/ payments and the website, we say a big thank you for your professional, friendly and superb assistance. Prestige also designed and provided the abstract management system used by the Scientific Committee and this proved to be most successful and user friendly.”
Stanford Slabbert, SAOPA Conference Chair
“During the course of our contractual arrangements I found the Prestige Conference Team reliable and consistent, making every effort to accommodate SAMEA’s requests and maximise the value of our limited event budgets at the conference venues. The Prestige team possesses a depth of industry experience that makes them vey well-placed to negotiate the best deals and arrangements with conference venues, which is why SAMEA has repeatedly appointed them to organise our conference events.
I highly recommend Prestige Conferences and will gladly serve as a reference should you have any questions about our experience working with their team for the three SAMEA Events. Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions”
Mike Leslie, SAMEA Conference 2015 – Conference Chair
“Dear Riedwaan, I am writing to thank you for organising the World Congress. By all accounts it was an excellent Congress – the Scientific and the Social elements. I always believe that the latter is as important and that is what people often remember the Congresses by. I genuinely believe that the President’s Reception was perfect and the Congress Party at MOYO was sold out and enjoyed by all – with Japanese members of the Kobe WCC admitting that after these 2 social occasions they feel that they are under pressure. I felt that your ladies at Prestige Conferences were brilliant, kind and helpful and above all they were efficient. Please thank them on my behalf.”
Rajiv Hanspal, Chairman -ISPO World Congress 2017
