Max Marx rounds up the major new developments on the events scene in Gauteng.
Gauteng, Africa’s economic powerhouse, is gearing up to position itself as a mega-events destination.
Already the province’s world-class infrastructure – from roads and telecommunications to its high-tech conference and convention centres, stadiums, exhibition halls and first-rate accommodation options – makes it an attractive destination for medium-sized meetings, incentives, conference and exhibitions (MICE) as well as for large stadium events such as sports matches and music concerts.
Now several new developments on the cards will enable Gauteng to attract mega business events to the province and further enhance its status as South Africa’s premier events destination.
The building of two new international convention centres has been confirmed and a third is under discussion.
