Planning and organising an event in Tshwane, big or small, is a cinch with the city’s vast spread of venues and popular to-dos.

The CSIR International Convention Centre, also a mere 15-minute drive from the main city centre, is better suited for business events and conferencing. This centre has been designed and built with special soundproofing so that multiple events can run concurrently without interfering with each other in any way. The CSIR offers an exhibition hall with capacity for 1 000 people, three auditoriums and various meeting rooms catering for between 10 and 160 people.

If you are challenged with arranging transport for your delegation, consider hosting your event at The Maslow Time Square. Time Square Sun Arena is a multipurpose venue that provides seating for up to 8 500 people. It is suitable for events such as concerts, with all the amenities and services forming part of this offering. Time Square also offers banqueting and, within the hotel, its business centre and meeting rooms are ideal for smaller events and breakaways.

Set atop Waterkloof Ridge in Pretoria, Villa Sterne provides accommodation as well as conferencing facilities – all with a beautiful vista. The venue offers several spaces including a boardroom, dining room and conference centre. Its boardroom is able to host up to 14 seated individuals at tables. The dining room can handle 60 seated guests, with the conference centre able to manage up to 100 guests. Catering is optional through the venue, which can include light refreshments and snacks, or full three-course meals.
