The Natal event was in conjunction with iWeek, and the WAPA annual AGM at the Elangeni & Maharani Hotel on the Durban beach front. More sponsors came onboard for this event. What also differentiated this event from the other previous two events, was that more WISP’s outside the WAPA membership attended. We also realised the value in this, and decided that we will welcome non WAPA member WISP’s to attend future events.
The iWeek staff were dedicated to keep track of the registrations, and therefore we can’t tell for certain how many WISP’s attended. We do know that this was our second biggest event for the year (54 attendees), and the biggest social by far. The social was held at the Concierge’s Freedom Café nestled in a cool, leafy courtyard surrounded by the city of Durban’s hustle and bustle. What also stood out about this event was that the whole of the WAPA Management Committee could attend. For the first time the WAPA ManCom could see the value that these events offer our members.
