Greyville Racecourse is turning into Durban’s new hotspot for conferences, events, concerts, weddings, exhibitions and much more. A team of leading professionals in hospitality and event management have joined forces to transform hospitality at the racecourse and have created the Greyville Exhibition and Events Company.
They have gone from strength to strength and there is no stopping them now as they transform the 13 multi-flexible venues into dynamic spaces for all functions. Providing an open-plan exhibition and conference space at one of Durban’s most recognisable landmarks, the multi-purpose centre is adept at hosting sporting events, conventions, corporate functions, concerts and weddings.
Located at the historical grounds of the Greyville Racecourse (dating back to 1844), the centre features panoramic views of the city skyline and provides the perfect backdrop for networking.
With more than 25 years of experience, it’s little wonder that this team has been appointed as the sole marketing, sales and operations agents of Greyville.
With venues capable of hosting 20 people all the way up to the largest freestanding rooftop facility without columns in Durban where 1 600 people can comfortably be seated, there is nothing that can’t be done here. In close proximity to national highways and 5 000 secure on-site parking bays, make Greyville the preferred destination for both social and business occasions alike.
This dynamic team are also hosting many of their own events at Greyville, and will be using their outside area for an International Horsepower Auto Showcase, jazz festivals, breaking a Guinness world record for the longest dining table, concerts and many more exciting events.
Other in-house events include the likes of comedy shows, the Philharmonic Orchestra, a hole-in-one competition in their stadium shoot-out with R1-million in prize money, gala dinners, as well as bringing back the Mercury Networking Breakfast. It seems there will be a lot more than just racing going on at Greyville from now on as this dynamic team mix true eventing professionalism with a bit of fun to put Greyville Racecourse on the map.
