It was a pleasure dealing with Leighton throughout. He was always available to assist and anything required was immediately actioned. He was professional throughout and despite the challenges faced with a concurrent strike and build, he took it all in his stride and went the extra mile. Always friendly and courteous.
The venue is accessible and offers a wide range of facilities which are rare to find. Thank you for hosting our biggest cooking event. We made history.
The entire process was great. Staff were always on the ball with all requirements for the event . A special mention and thank you to Refilwe and Hannes for going out of their way to ensure our event held
To the management and team at Expo Centre. Thank you for making a sad event a memorable experience at hall 5 for the memorial service of the late Nick Durandt, which was held on the 5th of May 2017. The staff, organizers and venue were of international standards, if not better! The knowledge, experience, dedication and passion were plain to see, and the whole experience was absolutely mind blowing. There is no better destination for events, and the highly qualified team who assisted us was professional and outstanding. There is no doubt that the Johannesburg Expo Centre is the leader in the market place
The overall experience was great with venue management extremely helpful.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Johannesburg Expo Centre Team for allowing us to exhibit at the venue. We really appreciate all the hard work and efforts you made to make our expo a success, your co-operation was highly noted. All venue logistics ran smoothly and we definitely look forward to being given the opportunity to exhibit again at the venue in 2018.
We had such an impeccable first weekend that we were able to hold another convention from 28-30 August 2015. The support we received from staff and their willingness to assist was invaluable. We wish to host more events at the JEC, exploring ways in which we can use the facility more effectively.
We would firstly like to thank Expo Centre for permitting us to use the MAN building to host our inaugural Machine Tools Africa Briefing. It was held on the 8th February 2017 and it was definitely a great success. As with any other event, there will be some last minute changes and we were accommodated in this regard by Expo Centre’s helpful team. They granted us early access to the venue which was really beneficial.
South Africa hasn’t seen an event like this before and the Expo Centre was the perfect venue to launch this concept. The venue, cleaners and staff were incredible and we cannot wait for next year’s tour.
We participate at a number of international mining exhibitions worldwide and have been supporting the Electra Mining brand for a number of years. The venue has always been great from an accessibility point of view, considering the size of the equipment we bring in.
The Expo Centre surpassed all our expectations with this event, the team was professional and accommodating which made all the difference in staging a successful event.
The versatility of the JEC venue enabled this year’s theme, featuring cars and racing, to be executed with style as artists and performers were driven on stage in a range of vehicles.
The JEC meets all of the logistical and infrastructural requirements of a construction machinery and mining machines trade fair such as Bauma Conexpo Africa.
The JEC continues to be one of our favourite facilities to use for warehousing. Not only because of the convenience we enjoy in terms of proximity, but also because of the ease of access.
The event was such a great success that General Motors is coming out to do it again in November. We were delighted by the spectacular response and the fantastic service we’ve come to expect from the JEC.
We were delighted to introduce China Sourcing Fairs to the Johannesburg Expo Centre. This is the ideal venue for this unique brand, meeting all our requirements as well as those of our exhibitors and visitors.
The inaugural show provides timeless memories and, in February 2015, we raised the bar. We plan to grow the event in South Africa for many years to come so that Ultra South Africa becomes a destination festival that music fans should experience at least once. As Ultra expands to other parts of the globe, giving the festival new heights, there may not be a more beautiful location in South Africa than the JEC.
The SAB Extravaganza went off seamlessly and the team at JEC is a pleasure to work with. It’s a well-designed, world-class venue that is perfectly suited to hosting large crowds of people. We will definitely be back.
Expo Centre is one of the best venues I’ve ever visited or held events. The facilities exceed expectations and the staff members are a pleasure to work and interact with.
We normally use for our convention. We love the spacious halls that can accommodate so many people at once, each with its own. We often use for convention of different languages simultaneously.
