“Very formal. Also very sterile.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Well, it is a conference centre. Nothing more.

It is a professional venue and the security is friendly and helpful. However there are no ATMs there so you'd better not plan on spending cash there unless you bring your own stash with you.

Parking is a bit of an issue as the onsite parking fills up quickly and for almost any show/exhibition you will need to park in the nearby Sandton City or Nelson Mandela Square shopping centre (where there are ATMs too).

The toilets are well maintained and clean, so that is a plus.

“Good facility.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Large, clean and well staffed, overall a decent conference center. Some deficiencies such as no lavatory on each floor, and less than ideal number of outlets in each room. Not the best conference facility I've ever been in, but certainly far from the worst.

“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The convention center is located next to the mall and major hotels. There is a skybridge connecting the convention center to some hotels.

“Great !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

What an organised bunch of people ! Great finger lunches and well organised. Huge yet when joining a crowd very easily accesible. Coming from abroad one doesn't feel one is in Africa.
