The main arena capacity is highly versatile and has seen a multitude of concert setups, special event setups and hosts some of the most well known trade and consumer exhibitions in South Africa.

“20 years on for us the advantage is still the Dome. You know you can come to the venue and you have great management and a large supportive team, all under one roof. There are exceptional facilities indoors whilst allowing us to expand outdoors, this keeps us coming back.”
Mama Magic – The Baby Expo
“We have organised exhibitions since 2005 and the Dome is definitely our preferred venue. It‘s always a pleasure going back there for our visitors, exhibitors and as organisers. Their customised service offering, the centrality of their location, the flexibility of the size of the venue and their very accommodating team makes it a perfect venue to host an exhibition.”
“The Ticketpro Dome has proven to be a great choice of venue for Mediatech Africa. We actually moved to the venue in 2011 in order to accommodate the growing size of the show and we have not been disappointed.
Although the Ticketpro Dome is not perceived to be your typical trade show venue, it has been able to accommodate the size of the expo and provides an environment where build-up and breakdown is easy and far more convenient than other venues we have used before. We have also been able to use the internal height of the venue to our advantage, given the show a far more open feel and the outdoor space which has effectively been used to deal with our Outdoor Sound Demos that we host.”
“We have been doing business with the Dome since the inaugural concert in 1998, which was Diana Ross. The very first show that was we organised so we are almost 20 years old now and have been organising shows at the Dome since then, which makes us part of the furniture. What we like about the Dome is its scalability, we can do anything from a 400 – 5000 capacity event, private events like what we did with Woolworths and Pharrell Williams to 19 000 people per night for a large scale concert, as we have done many, many, many times. So that scalability is quite important to us with the variety of content that the Dome can offer which makes it really quite unique.
We don‘t have any other venue of that size in South Africa, in fact I think it‘s the biggest arena that we have in Africa. So, certainly, it gives a bit of everything that you need as a promoter. In each venue we conduct customer satisfaction surveys after every event, and the Dome comes out tops among all the different venues that we work with in South Africa. It is a great venue, you can move in and out quickly and change setups efficiently.
The international crews really enjoy working at the Dome, from an event perspective we are aware that it‘s won numerous awards over the years, and we enjoy it and rate it very highly and we will continue to work there in future.”
“We have been doing business with the venue for close on 12 years. Disney on Ice needs an indoor venue that has the space and the roof hanging capability, as well as the capacity to hold around 6500 people, it‘s definitely the best venue in the country for a show of this nature.”
