The Namaqua West Coast has much to offer event planners: rugged outdoor venues for team building events, formal corporate conference venues in Vredendal and Vanrhysdorp, elegant wedding venues on wine farms, and intimate functions on the coast.

Guest farms in the Maskam and Gifberg Mountains are ideally suited for corporate team building events. Most farms offer accommodation in chalets, with additional conference rooms and lapa for outdoor braais. Outdoor activities can include hiking, 4x4 routes, river camping and visits to important heritage sites that preserve San rock art.

For those looking for a more traditional West Coast experience, the coastal towns of Strandfontein and Doringbaai have much to offer for more intimate events with a lot of local flair. Doringbaai provides an unbeatable combination of local wine and fresh seafood. Functions can be hosted on the jetty of the old Crayfish Harbour, and in other smaller venues in the town. Strandfontein lies just north of Doringbaai. The seaside resort is a popular holiday destination, and can provide accommodation for guests attending functions in both Strandfontein and Doringbaai. Strandfontein has a number of venues for wedding parties and events There are a number of guesthouses and hotels in Vredendal and Vanrhynsdorp, as well as on surrounding wine farms, and many have well equipped facilities suited for large formal corporate events, while others are able to accommodate smaller groups.
