Home to over 3 million people, Tshwane is a hive of activity with a lot to offer. At a glance, Tshwane seems rather innocuous as a destination but don’t pass up the area if you’re looking for a unique take on your next meeting or event.

The Tshwane area is sprawled across 6 298 km2and caters for a variety of different types of events. For larger events, there are a number of venues that can host exhibitions and delegations of between 1 000 and 10 000 people. Many of the bigger venues also provide spaces for smaller, more intimate gatherings; however, a selection from the abundance of available hotels and resorts with conferencing facilities in Tshwane might make more sense for your event, depending on numbers.

With 10 exhibition halls, 10 conference halls, 3 500 secure parking bays, and facilities equipped to handle livestock auctions, Tshwane Events Centre in the western part of the metro has massive capacity. Exhibitors and large-scale event planners have an array of options among the 40 000 m2indoor and 45 000 m2outdoor exhibiting space offered by the centre, which is fully equipped with audiovisual and connectivity competencies.

The Heartfelt Arena, while smaller than Tshwane Events Centre, is easily accessible from both numerous highways and South Africa’s administrative capital, Pretoria, which is only a 15-minute drive from the venue. The arena can manage between 400 and 4 000 people and, as part of its offering, provides a full turnkey solution in the form of its event management services that include catering, AV, decor, safety and security, and health and sanitation.
