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

Avianto’s professional 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, beautifully and individually appointed and have been designed to connect people for the duration of their stay – not separate them into numbered boxes filled with their escape mechanism of choice.

The village by design makes each guest 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 to attract conferences for, after all, team bonding is an essential ingredient to any conference or seminar.

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 the Executive Chef and his talented and competent team. While creativity is a great 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” feast! All the while learning to communicate and bond as a team.

Several 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 taste and presentation of the meal, and their teamwork.
Avianto’s newly built Boma area, hosts a “Potjie Dinner” teambuilding event also facilitated by their creative Chef. This activity is an excellent combination of teambuilding and the preparation 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.

Johannesburg, Egoli (City of Gold), Jozi, Jo’burg or Gauteng is the largest city in South Africa and the most densely populated.  It is the economic hub of the country and has the largest economy in Sub Saharan Africa and as such boats the most conference venues in South Africa.

It is one of the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the world and the world’s largest city not situated on a river, lake or coastline.

It enjoys a sub-tropical highland climate.  The summer months of October to April bring late afternoon thunder showers while the climate remains somewhat dry and sunny.  It claims to be the lightning capital of the world although this title is also claimed by other cities around the world.  Despite experiencing a relatively dry climate Johannesburg has over 10 million trees making it the largest man-made forest in the world second only to Graskop in Mpumalanga.  These trees were originally planted to provide wood for the mining industry in the mineral rich Witwatersrand area.  They were retained as the northern suburbs grew and were even expanded with the encouragement of subsequent municipalities but recently deforestation has occurred to make way for redevelopment both commercially and residentially.

Conference venues in Johannesburg range from small boutique hotels to guest houses and of course larger dedicated conference centers or conference venues attached to the larger hotels.  Most are well priced and offer a wide range of menus and facilities of a world-class standard.

There are many conference venue web sites which list hotels and conference venues in Johannesburg and other areas of South Africa.  Click here to find a conference venue in Johannesburg.

Johannesburg boasts the largest and busiest airport in South Africa and as such commuting to and from conference venues in Johannesburg is almost effortless.  Airport transfers are available and affordable and many hotel venues in Johannesburg offer a complimentary shuttle service to guests.  For national conferences, where delegates are commuting from other major cities in South Africa, Johannesburg remains a popular destination due to its accessibility and availability of services.  Air flights are frequent and cost-effective and delegates often travel to Johannesburg for the day to attend conferences in JohannesburgHotel accommodation in Johannesburg is also plentiful and delegates who wish to stay over can find a room easily.  Accommodation ranges from 5 star properties to the more budget friendly establishments.

There are nine hotels which are situated at or very near to R Tambo International Airport allowing delegates and business travellers to move between the airport and their hotels inexpensively and with ease.

In the CBD there are some very large conference venues while on the outskirts one can find some very quaint and more intimate establishments.

Johannesburg is a gateway to other regions in the Gauteng province such as Muldersdrift, Magaliesburg, Centurion and Pretoria.  Popular conference venues near Johannesburg include areas such as Midrand, Fourways, Randburg, Randfontein, Rustenburg and Sandton.

The four biggest conference venues in Johannesburg are undoubtedly; Sandton Convention Center, situated in Sandton, Africa’s 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, and MTN Expo Center, Nasrec, the city’s biggest venue and not far from Soweto.  These venues can each host thousands of delegates and abound with facilities and services to cater for all types of conferences and events.
