Conference venues Gauteng

Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa, situated in Gauteng. It is the most densely populated city in this region and in the entire country while also being the economic hub of the country. Johannesburg has the largest economy in Sub Saharan Africa and is the largest city in the world which is not situated on a river or at the coast. It is therefore, without question, the largest conference destination in Southern Africa boasting two airports, OR Tambo International airport and Lanseria for many internal flights. A very busy city with many thousands of business and therefore the ideal conference, convention and seminars destination, both nationally and internationally.

Home to many fine conference and convention centres which are First World in standards and operations, convenient, complete with state-of-the-art, modern equipment and facilities. An easy commute from all other larger cities in South Africa and further afield.

Airport transfers are available and affordable from many hotel venues in Johannesburg who offer a complimentary shuttle service to guests.
Accommodation ranges from 5 star properties to the more budget friendly establishments which are virtually on every corner.

Johannesburg, although essentially in the Highlands, enjoys a sub-tropical climate with hot and dry summer months from October to March and is infamous for its late afternoon thunder showers and cooler evenings. Also known as the lightning capital of the world. The winters are cold and dry, with occasional snow falls although these are infrequent. Temperatures in winter might drop to minus 2 or 3.

Conference venues in Johannesburg are offered at small boutique hotels and guest houses and at larger dedicated convention centers and conference venues, either part of the larger hotels or ‘stand alone’ convention centres.
