Hope to see you there Gulden. Yes, we selected the conference center and hotels with this in mind. Thank you for being on top of this. The location in Kirstenbosch is fed by a natural spring from Table Mountain for example. I'm happy to speak to you directly about this if you would like.

I would love to participate. But have the organisers considered the problem of water shortages in Cape Town? Particularly in the month of April, severe restrictions will be in place and hotels, etc will be also affected.
