Established in 1993, Gallagher Convention Centre is celebrating their 30th birthday this year.

This landmark Midrand property spanning over 32 hectares, with its 27 venues, has borne witness to pivotal moments in the South African story and the personal lives of many South Africans.

Gallagher Convention Centre has proven resilient in the face of many challenges over the last three decades. This venue has been the facility for historical events, conversations and meetings that changed the face, fate, and future of our country.

It is almost impossible not to recognise this venue and the event industry’s contribution to the South-African economy. Conferences and exhibitions directly impact business development and increase foreign confidence and investment.

Gallagher is operated with an appreciation for dedication and experience. The venue is also managed with respect for the history and great care for the land it is built on. Originally a small holding, the Gallagher Convention Centre gardens honour what came before and preserve a beautiful sanctuary for the wildlife on the property.

The Gallagher infrastructure was built and designed to stand the test of time, with all refurbishments to the venue being done in a manner that integrates the modern with the classic. The buildings are still clad in the original marble, as when the venue opened its doors in 1993.

The majority of the staff that has been with the venue for the last 30 years. By instance, the Guest Relations Manager, Anna Malaza, has seen Gallagher Convention grow to the largest and busiest events venue in South Africa from its first event three decades ago.
