Hyatt Regency

The Hyatt Regency Johannesburg offers a seamless MICE experience in Rosebank, one of the city’s most sought-after suburbs.

Ask any Joburger to describe their hometown, and chances are, they’ll mention its energy. A city that thrives on dreams, goals, hard work and success, Johannesburg is fueled by an electric energy that inspires and motivates.

What better place, then, than this booming metropolis, to host international conferences and meetings?

For groups travelling to the city, the Hyatt Regency Johannesburg offers the ultimate location for all MICE requirements.

MEETINGS AND EVENTS

“At the Hyatt Regency, we have a combined meeting space of more than 1,400m2,” says the hotel’s General Manager, Karl Marshall.

One of the few Johannesburg properties to offer large-scale meeting facilities, the Hyatt Regency Johannesburg’s 11 meeting rooms can host groups as small as 50 and as large as 350.

“Our meeting rooms are extremely flexible, so we are able to create an imaginative, creative event tailored to your individual needs,” says Marshall.

ACCOMMODATION

As well as world-class conference facilities and technical support, one of the real advantages of hosting an event with the Hyatt Regency is the large number of guests that can be accommodated within the hotel.

“We have a group ceiling of 200 rooms, and in the case of overflow, we are able to partner with neighbouring hotels to ensure that guests receive top accommodation within walking distance of the event,” says Marshall. “Not many other properties in Johannesburg are able to house that many delegates under one roof.”

At 36 to 42m2 each, the hotel’s rooms are spacious, modern, well-equipped and tastefully appointed, showcasing the hotel’s signature contemporary African aesthetic. For a more premium offering, guests can upgrade to the hotel’s exclusive Regency Club, or of course enjoy the 15 suites on offer.

DINING

When it comes to dining, the Hyatt Regency’s oneNINEone South African-inspired fusion restaurant is helmed by Chef de Cuisine Xavier Francis, who has cut his teeth in some of the best kitchens in the country.

“Absolutely everything in our restaurant is locally sourced, and we use prime ingredients to create a typically South African menu that shows off the best our country has to offer,” says Francis.

For Marshall, this is one of the real selling points of hosting an event at the Hyatt Regency.

“We work closely with the oneNINEone team so there is no disparity between banqueting and what you would enjoy at the restaurant,” he assures. “Every guest at a meeting will be treated to the finest dining experience.”

To ensure a seamless conference and events experience, lunch and coffee breaks can be served on the same floor as all of the meeting rooms. That said, the oneNINEone restaurant can be utilised on a private basis, and guests can also enjoy a quick and informal meal or coffee in the hotel’s Lobby Lounge.

LEISURE

For those off-the-clock moments, the ground floor of the hotel opens up onto a beautiful central courtyard, a lush, green open-air space from which guests can enjoy Johannesburg’s famously fine weather. This courtyard is ideal for tailored cocktail receptions, networking events, or even a quintessentially South African braai. Within the courtyard is The Terrace, an intimate al fresco cigar and wine lounge, to complete the hospitality offering.

The Hyatt Regency Johannesburg is perfectly positioned to provide both a successful event and an enjoyable travel experience. With a rooftop swimming pool, spa, gym and sauna, the hotel offers plenty of activities for delegates during their time off. What’s more, it is adjacent to three of Johannesburg’s top malls, guaranteeing unrivalled shopping and dining experiences off-site.

If location is key, then Rosebank cannot be beaten. Firstly, it is home to one of the city’s Gautrain stations, which means the hotel guests can reach the airport within minutes. A multicultural, buzzing suburb, Rosebank also offers endless leisure opportunities. Art galleries, restaurants, bars and shops are all within walking distance of the hotel, and the suburb is a safe and friendly environment from which guests can get to know the city.

REWARDS

The Hyatt group is recognised throughout the world for hosting successful meetings and events, and as such it recently implemented the World of Hyatt Planner Rewards programme.

“Participants of the new rewards programme will earn one World of Hyatt Passport Bonus Point for every eligible US dollar spent on meetings and events and up to 50,000 bonus points per qualifying meeting or event,” says Marshall. “Points can be redeemed for exciting travel rewards, future meeting credits, free nights and more.” With its rich combination of conferencing facilities, accommodation, fine dining, excellent location and rewards, the Hyatt Regency is the ideal destination for your next event. The iconic Johannesburg property offers meeting planners and guests the peace of mind of an international brand within an authentically South African setting.
