Not sure if this happens all the time, but when I did visit it was to see an art exhibition that was running for a week at the center. The center had such good space to accommodate hundreds of exhibitors!!!!

Always enjoy the annual Think Sales conference at this venue. Great visual set up and the sound quality from the presenters is excellent. Centrally located and easy access to the Gautrain for us out of town attendees.
