What our clients have to say

Don’t take our word for it – let our clients give you peace of mind:

Danny Figueiredo | Spiced Events

“South Africa hasn’t seen an event like this before and the Expo Centre was the perfect venue to launch this concept. The venue, cleaners and staff were incredible and we cannot wait for next year’s tour.”

Andre Botha | Contract Manager, Jehovah’s Witness Convention

“We had such an impeccable first weekend that we were able to hold another convention from 28-30 August 2015. The support we received from staff and their willingness to assist was invaluable. We wish to host more events at the JEC, exploring ways in which we can use the facility more effectively.”

Cindy Bailing | Marketing Services Representative, Joy Global

“We participate at a number of international mining exhibitions worldwide and have been supporting the Electra Mining brand for a number of years. The venue has always been great from an accessibility point of view, considering the size of the equipment we bring in.”

Gugu Zulu | Spokesperson, General Motors

“The event was such a great success that General Motors is coming out to do it again in November. We were delighted by the spectacular response and the fantastic service we’ve come to expect from the JEC.”

Russell Faibisch | Founder, Producer and CEO, Ultra Music Festival and Ultra Worldwide

“The inaugural show provides timeless memories and, in February 2015, we raised the bar. We plan to grow the event in South Africa for many years to come so that Ultra South Africa becomes a destination festival that music fans should experience at least once. As Ultra expands to other parts of the globe, giving the festival new heights, there may not be a more beautiful location in South Africa than the JEC.”
