Construction Expos, Sandton and Hypenica (2015-05-11) My Life 08 MAY 2016

(NOTE: Oh dear. This post has been sitting in my Drafts folder for a year now. I wrote it up at the end of May 2015, but never got around to finishing it off. Now, a year later, my birthday is literally around the corner again, and more importantly, the 2016 version of the Expo is about to kick off on Monday. And yes, Kinetica is again being used to manage the badge print process in case you’re wondering. Right, time to get it out of my Drafts folder then…)

Luckily Chantelle and I celebrated my birthday the weekend before with a fabulous weekend away of wine and activities in Franschhoek, because come the Monday of my birthday (11 May 2015), I was on the plane and off to Johannesburg for work!

Hypenica, the sister company to which Touchwork (whom I work for) is a technology partner to, is an events and media (Concrete.tv, Cape Business News) company, focused in particular on the construction and infrastructure business sectors.

The week of the 10-16 May 2015 was a big one for them, with four distinct operations simultaneously taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre to make up their Concrete Week and African Construction Week events.

Sandton Business Hotel: The Maslow
[Partner Content] 19 SEP 2013

When travelling to Sandton on business it’s important to find a business hotel that fulfills your needs. Usually business trips are a whirlwind of meetings, presentations and entertaining, so it follows that business travellers need a hotel in Sandton that can support their business, as well as an environment that allows one to recharge their batteries.


“Finding a Sandton business hotel with all the features and benefits for the business traveller.”

The Maslow Hotel in Sandton is just such a hotel. Its design is modern, spacious and soothing. The hotel rooms are minimalist, comfortable and functional. It also has everything a business traveller needs from black-out curtains, work space and connections for your laptop and cell phone. Extra touches like a coffee machine, good lighting and a great shower are added benefits.

Business travellers tend to always be on the go and eat out a lot. Sandton has many restaurants and cafes that can do something quick and healthy, as well as something a little more high-end when entertaining clients. The Maslow’s Lacuna Bistro breakfast is fantastic as is the uncomplicated and imaginative dinner menu.

The Africology Spa at The Maslow is also a winner. The Hydrotherapy zone, particularly the ice walkway and Razul steam room offer relaxing after work or lunchtime treatments especially for those suffering from jetlag or brain fog.

Business travellers appreciate being able to work in their own way with the technology they need at their fingertips. The Maslow’s uncapped WiFi offering has without a doubt the fastest download speed in Sandton and is available throughout the hotel. There’s a wide range of business facilities on offer from a conference center, auditorium, to a number of secluded meeting rooms offering all-inclusive packages.

For travellers with an early check in or late flight departure, the Wayfarer lounge is a great place to grab a shower and a bite to eat at before departing for the airport.

It’s hard to find a home away from home, but The Maslow’s can-do approach to business and pleasure comes close. Its understated elegance is relaxing, its fluidity from hotel room to board room sensible and its attention to detail, unusually relaxing. And it’s affordable.
