CONFERENCE AND CONVENTION VENUES GAUTENG

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.

Many 3, 4 and some 5 star hotels are situated at or very near to OR Tambo International Airport allowing delegates and business travellers to move between the airport and their hotels with ease with free shuttle services offered by most of these. Other large venues have been built in village format, comprising several accommodation establishments, flanked by large conference facilities and restaurants in safe and secure surroundings. Conference organisers are truly ‘Spoilt for Choice’ in Jozey …

Johannesburg is a gateway to other regions in the Gauteng province and beyond such as Mpumalanga and Polokwane, and nearer home, Muldersdrift, Magaliesburg, Rustenburg, Centurion, Irene and Pretoria. These outlying areas are often a preference to the conference organiser due to their location, peace and solitude for result achieving conferences or seminars which require focus and little distraction. Popular conference venues in the greater Johannesburg region include areas such as Midrand, Fourways, Randburg, Randfontein, Houghton, Sandton and the East Rand and Southern Suburbs.

Some of the largest conference venues in Johannesburg are Sandton Convention Center, situated in Sandton, a top class shopping and business center, Gallagher Estate, situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria, The Coca Cola Dome, the fourth largest such structure in the world, Midrand Conference Centre and MTN Expo Center, Nasrec, the city’s biggest venue and in close proximity to Soweto. These venues will cater for all types of conferences and events and have ample space for the large international events.

Conference venues in Pretoria

A little History on conference venues in Pretoria and Pretoria as a city

PRETORIA was founded in 1855, by Marthinus Pretorius, a Voortrekker leader. He named what is now, a bustling metropolis after his father, Andries, who was instrumental in the Voortrekker victory over the Zulus in the monumental Battle of Blood River.

Today the area has been renamed the City of Tshwane, but the CBD still keeps the name of Pretoria (which continues to be the administrative capital of South Africa)
The Union Buildings, central to South African history now represent the change South Africa endured. While the city is a governmentally significant city, it is also alive with culture, housing museums, monuments, theatres, hotels and conference centres as well as being the hub of industry in the region.
Affectionately known as “Jacaranda City” because of the over 50 000 Jacaranda trees that line Pretoria’s streets and carpet the city in purple in October. The first Jacaranda trees were imported from Rio de Janeiro in 1888 and became Pretoria’s signature. It is alarming to hear that the Jacarandas are threatening to become extinct in Pretoria soon. One can’t imagine Pretoria without the purple sky-line and floor …

The general area is also home to many nature reserves, parks and gardens, including the National Botanical Gardens and many small parks scattered across this pretty city.

The rich history of the area is also captured within several museums within Pretoria, such as the Transvaal Museum, National Cultural History Museum and many solid, old buildings that have been preserved as gems of the past

As with many of South Africa’s conference venues, those in Pretoria are of a high standard, with custom-built venues designed to international specifications. Pretoria, being centrally located as it is, is very popular as a conference, seminar and congress destination.

Central to the Midrand, Irene and further afield, one need look no further than the multitude of conference venues available from small intimate venues to the large, top-class hotels and conference centres in and around Pretoria.
Some venues, perhaps un-tried and certainly worth considering are:

The Owl’s Nest Wedding & Conference Centre (Rayton Conference Venues)

Set in the natural bush of the area, in the rolling hills of the Maghaliesberg, with a serene country ambience, The Owl’s Nest Wedding and Conference Centre provides professionalism plus a home-from-home atmosphere for delegates in conference.

Diep in die Berg Conference and Function Centre (Wapadrand Conference Venues)

The renowned Diep in die Berg Conference Centre is the ideal facility for the out-of-the-office conference, training or Bosberaad. Their all-purpose conference centre offers 7 conference rooms which can accommodate up to a maximum of 450 delegates.

PROTEA HOTELS offer a variety of venues throughout the area including Pretoria, and Midrand, all of which have a standard to uphold and are therefore reliable, consistently good with excellent service.

At Irene there is IRENE COUNTRY LODGE and LERIBA LODGE AND SPA at Centurion. The latter has, in recent times been thoroughly refurbished to a fine standard.
