Gauteng has the largest concentration of conference facilities in the country, comprising both stand-alone amenities and centres affiliated to the hospitality industry. Selecting the best is no easy task, as new centres open often, each one more state-of-the-art than the next. Some, however, do stand out as dedicated meeting and exhibition spaces.
Conference delegates attending meetings in Gauteng often want to factor in an experience of the African bush and its wildlife. If time is too short to warrant a trip to the Kruger National Park or the private game reserves in the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo (the road journey is a minimum of five hours), there are options within relatively short distances that make a stay of up to 2 days convenient.
Meetings, conferences, exhibitions and the incentive travel market are quick to reflect social, technological and environmental concerns. The sector is a dynamic one, adapting readily to new market demands.
