Fortis Hotel Manor is an absolute gem when it comes to hotels and amenities within the hospitality industry, with gorgeous interior and luxurious rooms and friendly staff that can not wait to host the stars and fans of Slamforce Africa.

Company President & CEO, Cornelius A.P. van Tonder, commented on the partnership: “I am beyond ecstatic to have this amazing group of Hotels on-board with us, when I visited the hotel personally I was completely blown away by every aspect of the Fortis Hotel Manor, from walking into the lobby, to leaving, it was an absolute pleasure. By far one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen in South Africa, and 100% at an International Standard.” He continued, “When we set out to find a hotel partner, there were many applicants, and many options on the table, from a pure marketing perspective you need to understand, having mega stars such as Rob van Dam, PJ Black and Celeste Bonin in a South African hotel – which does not happen often, if ever to be honest – is huge. But we needed to find a hotel that is line with the standards and expectations that our stars have. Fortis Hotel Manor and the group absolutely exceeded our expectations. We are thrilled, and I am personally ecstatic and grateful to their team for coming on-board with us, for the first season, and multi-events between 27 October and 31 December 2020. I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart, for joining our family.”
