The venue is great for a specialist conference providing a contained space to display wares. It is the contents of a conference that makes a visit worthwhile not the venue.

Our business forum was on the second floor of the center. It was in an averaged sized hall and had standard, clean facilities. the catering was good too (I am assuming it was provided by the center) and I like the fact that a Skyway connects it to the Nelson Mandela Square / Michelangelo.

Attended the Discovery leadership Summit 2016 at Sandton Convention Centre. 2500 people all in one room. what an amazing experience it was. Audio, visual, set up and atmosphere was phenominal. Lunch was great with finger foods and different stations to work through. Definately the only place that could pull something like this off in such style.

Attended a 3 day media conference here last week, and it's a great, clean, well located venue. Connected to the Sandton mall, and walking distance to a host of nice hotels.

SCC sets the standard for big conference centres. Always reliable, always going the extra mile. Excellently placed in the Sandton CBS, surrounded by a wide choice of hotels and across the street from one of the biggest shopping malls in Africa.
