Johannesburg is South Africa’s most populous city and home to many of the country’s biggest companies. Although Johannesburg companies often choose to have their team building events outside of Johannesburg, for many it is more convenient and practical to hold their event at a team building venue in Johannesburg. In this series of blogs, we are going to look at some of the team building venues situated in Johannesburg.
Our first team building venue is the Gauteng Conference Centre, situated in the Woodmead suburb of Sandton. Sandton is seen by many as the new business hub of South Africa and has become Johannesburg’s principal business centre. The venue is situated inside an access-controlled road, allowing visitors to relax and enjoy their event without any security concerns. It lies in proximity to Randburg, Fourways, Johannesburg CBD, Pretoria and the OR Tambo International Airport.
The facilities at the Gauteng Conference Centre is flexible and is equally suitable for team building events, conferences, meetings, product launches, breakfast presentations and workshops alike. The venue has a large grass area for team building on what used to be bowling greens. There is also more than enough space for indoor events in the numerous conference rooms.
The following are some of the events that TBAE is able to host at the Gauteng Conference Centre: Wacky Wet Weird & Wonderful, Sports Day, SA Mini Olympics, Boeresport, Tribal Survivor Challenge, Drumming, Amazing Race, Corporate Fun day, Minute to Win It, Movie Making, Boomwhacking, Noot vir Noot, Murder Mystery, Art Workshop, Cook Around the World, Potjiekos Cooking Competition and Archery.
For conferencing, the Gauteng Conference Centre offers a broad range of layouts in order to accommodate a variety of needs. Clients are encouraged to inform them of their company’s needs and requirements, with staff always on hand to assist in planning and customizing any event.
All the conference rooms are equipped with:

The most recent team building event held at the Gauteng Conference Centre was AON Hewitt’s Corporate Fun Day. The Corporate Fun Day event is an enjoyable activity for any occasion; with exercises either active or more toned down to include the “not so active” participants. The event is highly interactive and offers active spectator participation. In this event teams compete against each other on a combination of TBAE’s most popular team building exercises.
