PyConZA 2017 Venue

PyConZA 2017 will take place at The River Club in Observatory on the 5th and 6th October. The River Club is located near Hartleyvale Stadium on Liesbeek Parkway, after turning right onto Observatory Road on the way to the Observatory and turning left.

One of Observatory’s landmark buildings, The River Club has been a gracious host since 1939 for conferences, restaurant goers, and avid golfers. Under new and energetic owners, the grand dame on the banks of The Liesbeek River has enjoyed an extensive makeover and is ready to welcome a new generation of visitors for work and play. It has been fitted with state of the art audiovisual and communication technology, on-site catering, and upgraded WiFi.

You can read more about the venue on the official website.

There will also be the PyConZA Sprints and tutorial sessions happening around the conference, with venue and exact dates still to be decided.

Map & Parking

There is ample parking right in front of the building.
