About Carla

MG 5583

I work primarily as a PCO (Professional Conference Organiser) Event planner and Events coordinator at my own company, Vespasian Consulting. My client base is mainly corporate companies and I place business anywhere in South Africa as well as outside the borders of South Africa.

Furthermore, I am a Travel Consultant, creating bespoke travel experiences for many private individuals, small groups as well as corporate clients, especially for incentive travel. I am an individual member of SAACI (Southern African Association for the Conference Industry) as well as an Executive Committee Member of the PCO Alliance Network

Since 2015 I am working in association with Sandown Travel with regards to MICE enquiries and other travelSandownPlus - Vespasian services.

I am included in the TOP 40 WOMEN IN MICE 2016, as selected by The Planner Industry Magazine.

I freelance as a:

  • On-site event manager for meetings, conferences and events
  • Travel writer
  • Reviewer of venues, hotels, conference facilities
  • Tour leader for leisure and corporate groups to national and international destinations
  • Restaurant reviewer

Being an avid traveller, I have always been interested in all things travel and absorbed travel information like a sponge. I started my professional career in the Human Resource Management arena and only seized an opportunity in 2003 / 4 to became involved in the travel and tourism industry, developing into various capacities.

I travel locally and internationally, constantly visiting venues, writing reviews, attending travel workshops, exhibitions and local and international trade fairs to stay abreast of travel news, emerging trends and fabulous destinations.

I invite you to journey with me!
