A very comfortable Convention Center, with great facilities for over 8,000 delegates. The front entrance was under construction, so got a little dusty.

Good convention center. But they were in construction to the surroundings, the traffic was very heavy. I did not have sitting areas, to wait for you to be picked up. The noise made it difficult to talk. But as far as internal facilities are concerned, they are excellent, clean and very spacious.

Was there for GEC. Big venue, can take a while to figure where things are. Good for conferences, near the Gautrain and connected to the mall and hotels. WiFi works well.
