Sandton is the new unofficial Financial Capitol of South Africa – and therefore it has to be one of the best places to do business and hold your next conference. There are also other reasons to conference in Sandton in 2018, but here are the three best reasons to conference in Sandton…

There’s so much business

Home to the South African stock exchange, better known as the JSE, some of the top financial institutions and legal consultants, investment banks and the Sandton Convention Centre (SCC), one of the biggest on the continent, there is so much business going on in this Johannesburg business hub. The inner city doesn’t hold a candle to the power house stuff that goes on in this comparatively small, but incredibly wealthy area!

There’s so much to see and do

With the Gautrain running through it from the airport and to Pretoria, it’s easy to get around to the innumerable great places to see and do. It’s South Africa’s Dubai as far as shopping goes, a cultural and historical nucleus, with places like ‘The cradle of Humankind’ and ‘The apartheid museum’ to visit – and a wealth of entertainment venues.

There’s so much value

One of the premier convention venues in Morningside Sandton, in close proximity to the SCC, the Gautrain and major highways, is the luxurious old English style hotel and superb conference venue, the Faircity Quatermain. With an excellent winter wonderland conference special being offered right now, this is definitely one of the three best reasons to conference in Sandton!
