Tony Feldman | Ultra SA Executive
“The overall experience was great with venue management extremely helpful.”
Machine Tools | Africa Briefing Testimonial by Specialised Exhibitions
“We would firstly like to thank Expo Centre for permitting us to use the MAN building to host our inaugural Machine Tools Africa Briefing. It was held on the 8th February 2017 and it was definitely a great success.
As with any other event, there will be some last minute changes and we were accommodated in this regard by Expo Centre’s helpful team. They granted us early access to the venue which was really beneficial.
Our exhibitors were pleased with the venue, its accessibility as well as the ample parking space available. We have a long standing relationship with Expo Centre and look forward to building on it in future. “Lebogang Motswaled| Marketing Assistant”
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.”
