Join the GTP for a day of discovery

Register today for the Greater Tygerberg Partnership’s innovative conference, the flagship event on our annual calendar.

Themed Discover Bellville, the programme for the day will showcase Bellville and the opportunities that exist for it to achieve its full potential as Cape Town’s secondary city. It’s a day of inspiration, visualisation and, more importantly, a commitment to action.
