Avianto is a well established, highly regarded events destination that has become one of Johannesburg’s most popular conference venues and wedding venues, offering luxury accommodation in an un-hurried, peaceful area in Muldersdrift, secure and immaculate offering exceptional standards in all areas and ample outdoor space for team building.

Situated on the banks of the Crocodile River and surrounded by the Zwarkoppies hills and The Cradle of Humankind you will find this awesome, European-inspired village, set in a relaxed environment; a home-from-home and the perfect conference destination.

Conference venues within this beautiful Village include several variations of venues many of which can be sized according to your needs. The maximum seating capacity in the largest venue is approximately 200.

Avianto’s professional coordinators and experienced events management team will create the perfect ambience for your next event with efficient yet unobtrusive service, attention to detail being of the utmost importance.

Accommodation rooms in the hotel in the Avianto village are set slightly apart from the main function venues comprising 34 rooms, which include 29 luxury rooms and 5 suites, individually appointed and have been designed to connect people for the duration of their stay – not separate them into numbered cubicles filled with their escape mechanism of choice.

The village by design makes each guest into an individual, living in a personal space with its own character and yet intrinsically part of a community, a team. This is a subtle but important message which will contribute positively to any corporate brainstorm and team bonding process.

UNIQUE TEAM BUILDING ….. In addition to Avianto’s large repertoire of team building activities, is AVIANTO’S “READY, STEADY, COOK” AND “POTJIE COOK-OFF” (aka Master Chef Avianto), a new and unique addition to their team building activities. This has taken off like wild-fire and ensures the desired result of team-work, support, fun and the spirit of oneness.

This is an experience facilitated by their Executive Chef and his talented and competent team. While creativity is very much part of this event, your team will also have the opportunity to relax, unwind and use their ingenuity both in cooking their own meals and producing a “Ready, Steady, Cook” type feast! All the while learning to communicate and work as a team.

A number of different scenarios are on offer. The most popular being the “Mystery Meal Cook-Off” where each team is supplied with a mystery packet of ingredients. Teams are given a few minutes to exchange ingredients with one another and then they have to create a mystery meal using the ingredients supplied. The real test comes in the actual preparing of the various dishes, as well as how the plates for each course are garnished and presented. Teams are judged on the taste and presentation of the meal, as well as their teamwork.

Avianto’s newly built Boma area, hosts a “Potjie Dinner” team building event facilitated by their Chef. This activity is an excellent way to combine teambuilding with the preparing of a meal. Potjie pots, fires and ingredients are provided and teams are given the task of cooking a potjie to the judges’ liking. To make it more fun, why not add a “Cocktail Challenge” to the mix? Teams will have to invent a new cocktail which includes mixing and naming the drink. Judging is based on taste, presentation, originality and teamwork.
