The place is huge with variety of halls and rooms in different shapes n sizes. the staffs were really helpful especially for some of use who enjoy the Halal food. The equipment works perfectly. I like the skywalk from Sandton Sun and Intercontinental, it provide easy access to and from the hotels.

Some of the ballrooms can be difficult to find as they are not labelled and the rooms tend to be a bit dark, in general. They also ran out... More

I attended Meetings Africa, and the area is very nice and clean. Good staff at the convention and it was a very organised event. Great business opportunities, networking and meeting with different buyers.

Just a very good converence center with perfect link to southern sun hotel and interconti. Also link to the luxurious shopping center Sandton. I was attending a travel fair and the organisation was very good. I really enjoyed this conference center and hope to organize some conferences there in the future.

Situated in the heart of Sandton, beautiful art inside, easy to find, very accessible. No need to drive, very close to Sandton station and Sandton City. The rooms are spacious, clean and they serve good meals. Escalators always working. Staff very friendly.

We have been here for many exhibitions and functions and this venue is always clean and functional, the bathrooms could use closer supervision during events but other than that, this is an excellent place to have your events.
