Johannesburg Convention Bureau

The The Johannesburg Convention Bureau (JCB) acts as a ‘one-stop solution’ for independent information and assistance, giving neutral advice on all aspects of hosting and organising any business event in Johannesburg. Meeting and incentive planners will have ease of access to any and all information they require on the destination, simplifying their processes and making turnaround time significantly quicker.

JCB provides assistance to meeting planners, as well as incentive and exhibition organisers who are considering Johannesburg as their next destination. JCB also provides support at every level, using internal expertise, strategic planning and destination knowledge to ensure that, MICE activities in Johannesburg are memorable for delegates and hassle-free.

The fundamental mandate is to bid for business events which are intended to contribute towards achieving economic growth and reduce unemployment for the City. Attracting Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions/Events (MICE) to the City will contribute towards achieving this milestone. Bidding is primarily for association meetings which rotate internationally as well as regionally (Africa) and nationally (South Africa).
