SLOW in the City guarantees best prices on meetings and conferences anywhere in Sandton


SANDTON, Johannesburg, South Africa (October 2018)– In a bold move set to challenge Johannesburg’s business venue hire heavyweights, SLOW in the City invites entrepreneurs and executives to book meetings, events or conferences at prices guaranteed to outdo any alternative on offer within the Sandton Business District.

Renowned for its world-class video conferencing, acclaimed catering, spa-like shower facilities and unparalleled proximity to the Gautrain station, SLOW in the City will now be offering its twelve luxuriously appointed meeting rooms—able to accommodate between two and sixty delegates—at incomparable pricing over the next twelve months. While SLOW in the City has made itself available to non-members on a reservation-only basis since 2017, this is the first instance where it has made a direct, district-wide claim to do one better on venue hire anywhere in the precinct.

Located at the epicentre of Sandton’s transit interchange, and within easy reach of South Africa’s most prominent corporate headquarters, SLOW in the City is perfectly positioned for convenience and accessibility, while its sophisticated, Tonic-designed interiors promise to impart a lasting impression on anyone making use of them. Inspired by its distinctive location, each room has been individually furnished to reflect the nuances of its specific city setting—from lush, park-like vertical gardens and vividly lacquered table tops reminiscent of fluorescent illumination, to architectural wallpaper and sculptural steel screens.

The Corner Diner, a unique, cellar-like space seating two to four, is sure to impress guests with its intimate, ethereal atmosphere, backdrop of illuminated handmade tiles and selection of fine wines. Flanked by an indoor green wall and William Morris wallpaper, City Park Entrance 1 and 2 comprise a set of botanically-inspired breakaway rooms accommodating two to five delegates each. For those looking to host a conference, workshop or function, the contemporary, wood-paneled interior of the Observatory on Eighth can be reconfigured to welcome anywhere from six to sixty attendees. 

Irrespective of their choice in meeting venue, guests can look forward to instant, high speed connectivity, seamless technical support and world-class teleconferencing facilities. Serviced by an experienced team of management and waiting staff, delegates are assured of having their every professional requirement discreetly and expediently met. Those looking to freshen up pre- or post-meeting are invited to retreat into the lounge’s marble-clad unisex washrooms, featuring private vanity stations and generous showers replete with irresistibly soft cotton hand towels and luxurious body care products. Sleek, wall-mounted storage compartments allow for safeguarding of valuables while doing so.

Rounding off the SLOW in the City experience is a signature menu of appetisers, hearty breakfast, à la carte and buffet brunch and lunch options, and decadent desserts, meticulously prepared by Executive Chef Eli Williams and head recipe developer Ero Asteriou, and complemented by some of South Africa’s most celebrated wines, a choice of fine spirits and a selection of hot beverages carefully crafted by the lounge’s resident barista.

Any of SLOW in the City’s twelve meeting rooms may be booked by members of the public between 07h00 and 19h00 on weekdays.
