This place has great access to hotels and direct overhead connections to Nelson Mandela Square. It is clean, modern and well kept. This is a very nice venue for functions large and small.

I've been to many different events here, from industry conferences and exhibitions to entertainment events. My latest visit was for the King IV(TM) launch at the beginning of November. My experience is always good. I'd rate it excellent if the lifts worked all the time. Its location cannot be beaten, with the covered links to the Sandton Towers/Sandton City/Nelson Mandela... More

We visited the Sandton Convention Centre to see the Gateway to Space Exhibition. Staff were friendly and the Convention Centre is an easy walk from most of the hotels. We've also visited it in the past for a medical convention and the location and service were great.

Attended a Show last Sunday featuring artists from India and Pakistan. The hall accommodated approximately 5000 people, if not more, and yet the traffic into and out of the hall flowed relatively smoothly. The sound effects and visuals in the hall were extra-ordinary. The escalators to the 5th Floor worked well and so did the elevators. Munir D.
