Conference Venue

The Westin Cape Town

The 22nd International Conference on Paste, Thickened and Filtered Tailings will be held at The Westin Cape Town.

Address: Convention Square, Lower Long Street, Cape Town, 8000, South Africa

Phone: +27 21 412 9999


The Westin hotel is hosting a number of events during the Paste 2019 Conference, and as such, accommodation there will be scarce. 

The Westin Cape Town offers unique views of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and Table Mountain. The hotel’s glass façade allows clear panoramic views of the breathtaking beauty of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the whole of Table Bay. The hotel also offers a large variety of restaurants and bars.

With Cape Town having strict water usage restrictions, the Westin has made provisions for this by installing its own desalinisation plant, along with other water use initiatives. See more in this video.
