Companies don’t have to be listed to enjoy the excitement of a market open or utilise the venues at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

A symbolic market open like this may be celebrated every working day, offering a great opportunity for listed companies as well as businesses in general, including non-profit organisations, to shine the spotlight on commerce, says Carol Crozier, manager of Company Services in the JSE. The JSE has a number of venues and services that are available for hire, creating business awareness and promoting South African investment. A total of 500 pax can be accommodated across the JSE’s venues for hire, located in a single building in the heart of the Sandton financial node. Parking is available on site for a limited number of VIPs as well as in the adjacent underground parkade.

Venue hire is competitively priced and a variety of optional extras, from equipment to services, additional venues to training, may be incorporated into special packages. A range of gathering areas, digital signage, media and breakaway rooms, an executive dining room and auditorium have the latest technical features were part of a major renovation. Some of the companies that have utilised the space have live web-streamed their results around the world, thanks to the fast broadband Internet speeds and equipment on hand.

In addition to the infrastructure, cabling and technologically advanced equipment, the venue has an onsite sound engineer and technicians to ensure everything runs smoothly. The eventing team takes care of client relations and are familiar with all of the necessary security and political protocol required when hosting high ranking government officials and dignitaries. A preferred caterer adds the finishing culinary touches. Events range from business meetings, executive lunches, smart awards functions and market openings.

The JSE Training Academy offers a range of short courses for businesses keen to learn more about requirements for listing as well as investor relations training, insights and collateral development, media training, roadshows, analyst research report hosting. Carol says a partnership with the JSE is beneficial for business in general as well as sponsors of business. “At the JSE we looked at what other exchanges and bourses around the world are doing and have tailored our offering accordingly. We are focused on understanding how best to support our stakeholders in promoting themselves to their investors. We are able to host almost any event at any time, as long as it promotes South African investment. We also have a Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) satellite office here for the convenience of our clientele.,” explains Carol.
