Sandton CBD, Sandton

Sandton’s Central Business District (CBD) is known for many things; not least of all for its being the wealthiest square mile on the continent. It is the address of a number of very important companies and corporations, and is a Mecca for dedicated shoppers and anyone with a passion for the finer things in life. In fact, it is home to almost 10% of the South African companies that are listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, which is impressive, to say the least.

These companies host corporates and executives from all over the world and are, as a result, integral to the financial and commercial facets of the country. The Sandton Convention Centre is an important part of the CBD and is recognised as the most technologically advanced convention centre in the country. It covers an impressive 22 000 square feet and has hosted some of the most important expos and events to date.

Incredibly, what is now one of the continent’s busiest and most cosmopolitan epicentres was dedicated to open grasslands and farms just five decades ago. Amazingly, at the rate that the country is climbing the global business ladder, Sandton is only to set to expand and develop even more.

The CBD is surrounded by not-to-be-missed tourist attractions and accommodation facilities, thanks to its prime positioning.
