Joburg Convention Bureau is delighted to invite all industry partners to join our brand new industry partnership program. Please join us today – at no cost – and become part of a dynamic and effective collaborative group, focused on taking our city to the next level as a major, global business events destination.

Background
During the past year, Joburg Convention Bureau has reviewed its role, scope, and plans, aligning itself with the National Convention Bureau’s strategy. A focused, collaborative approach is what it’s striving for in order to streamline its efforts, play to its strengths, and in so doing attract a far bigger slice of the global business events market for Joburg.

By collaborating with Johannesburg’s business events sector, products, service providers, expertise, and intelligence across various industries and professions, the program serves as a one-stop shop to meet the needs of international business events clients. Partners will benefit from invaluable information on market trends, cutting edge know-how from experts, and business opportunities through cooperative sales and marketing platforms.

Benefits
In an effort to encourage industry players to join the program, membership is currently complimentary – and the benefits substantial. Becoming an Industry Partner will extend your company profile to the lucrative international business tourism market through a broad range of sales and marketing programs, initiated by the Johannesburg Convention Bureau. As a partner, you will be exposed to vital market intelligence, gain valuable professional networks, and be featured in various trade and promotional activities.

Partnership Categories
Partnership categories include venues, accommodation, event management companies, eventing products and services, touring and leisure, transportation companies, and industry associations. Benefits include sales leads, media exposure, listings in the JCB Meeting Planners’ Guide, on the website, as well as inclusion in bid documents and site inspections.
