Conference Venue


EDI Conference 2022

UCT GSB Conference Centre

9 Portswood Rd, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Cape Town, 8002


The conference venue is part of the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business’ campus. It is centrally located in the V&A Waterfront neighbourhood. The Protea Hotel Cape Town Waterfront Breakwater Lodge is situated on the campus. The V&A Waterfront offers a host of recreational activities and shopping opportunities, including crafts and a large supermarket.






The airport is situated approximately 20 minutes from the conference venue. It should take approximately 20 minutes by car, unless you arrive during the morning rush hour between 7 and 9am at which time it could take anything from 30 to 90 minutes. When returning to the airport you might get caught in afternoon traffic between roughly 4pm and 6pm.


There is a safe and comfortable public bus service which takes you to the City Centre and from there to the Waterfront: MiCiti

Approximate Fee: 6 Euro (one way)


We can recommend two affordable e-hailing services: Uber and Bolt.
Use “UCT Graduate School of Business, 9 Portswood Road, Victoria and Alfred Road, Cape Town” as your destination.

Approximate Fee: 10 Euro (one way)
Given the poor working conditions for e-hailing drivers it would be great if you could consider a tip which you can give via the app so no cash needs to be exchanged.


You can also make use of a private taxi service provider, many of whom will greet you as you arrive.

Approximate Fee: 20 Euro (one way)

Upmarket hotels also provide an in-house shuttle service from and to the airport which you can enquire about when booking.


A number of car rental companies are available at the airport and in the City Centre, approximately 2-3km from the conference venue.
