Conference Centres
Standing in the opulent lobby of the new Gold Reef City Casino Convention Centre it is difficult to imagine that, thousands of metres directly below, the dark tunnels of a once thriving gold mine now lie empty and silent.
For, as its name suggests, the Gold Reef City complex is built just a short walk away from the original headgear of one of Johannesburg's oldest and most profitable mines.

We are proud to announce the addition of the new, world class, multi-function Crown Reef Convention Centre.
With full catering facilities and highly qualified staff in both organisational and catering fields, we can make your function truly memorable.

The Oppenheimer Conference and Banqueting Centre invite you to experience a Conference & Events destination set in the late 18 century, a venue where excitement and fun are combined with business and pleasure.

Oppenheimer Conference and Banqueting Centre is capable of hosting conferences and corporate events for both large and small groups and we invite you to explore the many options available on the complex for conferences, banquet dinners, special occasions, private functions, weddings and corporate events.

Being located in the middle of a Theme Park, the possibilities are endless, from cocktail parties down a mineshaft, breakfast in the Winder House, minting your own corporate coins at the Gold Reef City Mint to mark that special occasion, to informal street parties in the Town Square.

We can organise your wedding / function with a choice of Exclusive Venues, Food, Equipment, Décor and Interior Decorating, Fully Stocked Bar and First Class Service.
