never been to a 7in7 Conference


7in7 Logo

Welcome! Here’s what to expect. 7in7 isn’t just a conference, it’s a whole week of activities punctuated by official events and attendee-led meetups.

Think of it more like a visit to Disneyland. You may have come for the parade and nighttime fireworks, but in the meantime you’re going to enjoy the rides, meet colorful characters, and eat way too many churros. You can do it all solo, but it’s more fun with friends.

Need advice on where to stay during the conference? We’ve got a neighborhood guide!

It’s the place-to-be before you get to Cape Town. Need a last-minute road trip buddy or a couch to crash on for a night? The Year Five Attendees Facebook Group is your jam.

downloaded our meetups app

The crux of the 7in7 experience are the attendee-led meetups. They tend to start about a month before the conference when attendees begin to arrive, and usually continue for a couple weeks after the conference ends.

There are meetups for anything and everything. Burgers. Movies. Game nights. Cat cafes. Hikes. Tech startups. Drinking wine.

There’s both an iOS app and a mobile-optimized webapp for hosting and joining meetups, so you can browse on your phone, create on your laptop, and join on your tablet.

Note: You won’t be able to log into the apps until we release our Year Five updates at the beginning of September 2020.


learned about our Year Five venue

Our Year Five venue is the Workshop17 Watershed at the V&A Waterfront. Get to know it before you step inside! It’s the perfect place to cowork before and after the conference.


packed for spring weather

IT IS NOT SUMMER. It’s spring in South Africa, and it’s lovely, but you’re going to need a light jacket to resist the elements.
