Gold Reef City is best known as one of Johannesburg’s most loved entertainment meccas, a reputation which sometimes overshadows the fact that it is also fully equipped for conferences and corporate events.

Southern Sun Gold Reef City’s event facilities cater for groups of between 20 and 1 100 delegates, and are suitable for board meetings, banquets and conferences. The conferencing facilities are available at a daily fee, which includes venue hire, standard conference equipment, refreshments and a full range of services.

These venues include:

Theme Park: Located within Gold Reef City’s Theme Park are several meeting and conference rooms, mixing modern facilities with old-world charm. Breaks can be taken within a private courtyard, or delegates can venture into the old mining town for something more novel. Seating capacity varies from a 12-seater boardroom to 180-seater cinema style venues.

The Lyric Theatre: When not hosting top local and international live entertainment, the Lyric Theatre is used for a wide range of events such as launches, award functions, graduation ceremonies, road shows, presentations and debates. This classically styled, world-class, fully equipped theatre seats up to 1 102 delegates – 790 downstairs with an additional 312 in the balcony and royal boxes.

Bullion Room: The Bullion Room is the perfect venue for dinners, awards, presentations and small intimate shows – thanks to its stage and technical infrastructure. It can seat up to 200 delegates banquet style and up to 500 delegates cinema style.

In addition, a number of team building events are available, such as the Amazing Race or Survivor (both based on the popular reality TV shows they are named after), the Movie Maker (which involves team work to produce a movie or advert), or a teambuilding Potijie Competition. These events can be done as a standalone, or as a fun add-on to your corporate event.
