Size might be the most important factor for an event especially if you’re taking the quality of your experience at the venue and the versatility of a space into consideration.
Sun International’s Sun Arena at Time Square in Menlyn Maine is the newest entertainment venue in Gauteng, and whilst only being in its first year of operation, it has become one of the most popular venues in the province.
This venue has become the No.1 choice of venue for exhibitors, concert organisers and gala events. Spanning over 6300m2of combined seating and mixed-use performance space on two levels, Sun Arena provides an unprecedented platform for staging grand scale events.
Variety shows like the South African Tattoo, which recently dazzled audiences with over 600 performers simultaneously on the arena, chose this space over any other outdoor or major concert venue. Being the largest purpose-built indoor seated arena in South Africa, the venue is a state-of-the-art 8 500-seater venue and can host about 10 000 for a standing concert.
One of its most attractive features is that it’s a plug-and-play venue. Besides the added convenience of other facilities like the Maslow Hotel and the casino along with numerous restaurants being on the property, and Menlyn Maine shopping centre just across the road, it was built to compete with and exceed some of the current top indoor venues in the country and is already doing so.
The venue boasts an international award winning digital audio system for spectacular sound and acoustics, as well as a high definition, audio-visual system complete with large format LED screens adding to every experience hosted.
The arena prides itself on the flexibility, and adaptability of the space which is able to accommodate 1 300 banquet guests, up to 1 800 delegates in a schoolroom format and over 7 000 audience members in a theatre configuration. Whether the space needs to play host to the like of The Script or a private charity dinner, it easily conforms to any adventurous or conservative briefs.
