9 - 14 JULY 2017 THE FEATHER MARKET CENTRE PORT ELIZABETH SOUTH AFRICA

DELEGATE INFORMATION

Conference Venue

Port Elizabeth’s Feather Market Centre 86 Baakens St, Port Elizabeth, 6001.

The Feather Market is a historical landmark, with origins in the ostrich feather boom dating back to the 1800s. Demand for ostrich feathers driven by European consumers prompted the building of a dedicated feather market in the city centre. The Feather Market Hall was completed in January 1885, and the official opening took place almost a year later with the month-long South African exhibition, ushering visits by approximately 60,000 people. It became the heart of auction sales and trades in ostrich feather, wool, and hides, in addition to playing host to glamorous business and cultural events for over a century. The Feather Market Centre was proclaimed a national monument in 1980.

The renovated Feather Market Centre has become converted into an outstanding concert hall and conference centre. It features a majestic double volume foyer with upper and lower level houses, chandeliers, sweeping staircases and luxurious decor. The main auditorium is ideal for keynote presentations and large banquet functions . In addition, there are several intimate breakout rooms ideal for facilitating presentations, discussions and workshops. The Centre is housed in the historic Feather Market building and is situated next to the equally historic city hall, library and post office buildings.
