Why Gauteng

Gauteng is one of nine provinces in South Africa, and boasts a rich history largely based on the foundation of a precious resource – gold. Because of this, it’s a powerhouse province and South Africa’s economic hub, accounting for a third of the country’s gross domestic product. Gauteng is where time is money and dreams are realised.

Although the country's smallest province, it is its most densely populated.

Gauteng – great for business

Energetic, creative, culturally diverse and authentic, Gauteng is where it all starts. The Gauteng Convention & Events Bureau (GCEB), a business unit within the Gauteng Tourism Authority, is dedicated to supporting the business events sector and implementing strategic initiatives to ensure that it continues to market and position the region as one of the world’s top meetings destinations.

The GCEB works in close partnership with key industry role-players, marketing Gauteng as a business hub, as well as an attractive and versatile meetings destination.

Gauteng Tourism is building and sustaining a common brand identity for the province and is proactively marketing the Gauteng regions (Ekurhuleni, Johannesburg, Sedibeng, West Rand and Tshwane) as preferred leisure, business and events destinations.
