Evening Reception

Grand Africa Café & Beach
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 6:30 PM

The FSM5 committee warmly invites you to attend an evening of relaxed, casual dining and networking at Grand Africa Café & Beach. Just minutes from Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront shopping area and nestled on the sea-front shoreline, this venue offers beautiful views of the mighty Atlantic Ocean and Robben Island. Following two days of innovative and educational meetings, this evening reception will allow attendees the opportunity to step outside of the CTICC and take in Cape Town’s beauty while enjoying heavy passed canapes and (limited) beer & wine, and soft drinks. Please note attendance for this evening event is optional and will be charged at USD $75 per person. Please indicate your interest in attending this evening event during your registration process. Due to Grand Africa Café & Beach’s waterfront location, we suggest bringing a light jacker or cover as it may be chilly. 

Shuttles will depart from the CTICC at 6:00 p.m. Includes limited beer, wine, soft drinks, and heavy appetizers. $75 per person, payable on the registration site.
