Midrand, an area of the City of Johannesburg municipality, attracts business travellers like honey attracts bees. This could easily be largely due to the fact that it is home to the largest conference centre in South Africa, Gallagher Estate. Hotels in Midrand also enjoy a glowing reputation.
Not to be ignored as well is the fact that many top companies, such as Vodacom, Microsoft, Neotel and Altech Autopage, have chosen to base their South African headquarters in the city. Along with prestigious business developments though, Midrand is striving to accommodate everyone, and have something on offer for every taste. Speaking to this is the new development of the Mall of Africa, which is set to be the largest mall on the continent. A veritable shopper's paradise.
If you find yourself in Midrand for business, don't let your trip stop there, as this city with a reputation for being serious has a fun relaxed side as well. Have some time free during the day? Visit Lory Park Animal and Owl Sanctuary, or maybe take a stroll through the Midrand urban Market. If your free time is lacking, then make the time you do have available count – make sure to try out some of the amazing restaurants calling Midrand home for your meals between meetings.
Another draw card (or should we say draw "car") to Midrand is of course its famous racetrack, Kyalami, home to a number of South Africa's premier motor racing events. Car enthusiast visitors to Midrand need to take the time to at least take a glance at the track, even if there aren't any races on – it'll be worth it to take in the history permeating from the course.
