The Venue

wits-science-stadium-2For #GIJC17, the world’s muckrakers are gathering at the Wits Science Stadium at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits). The stadium complex was opened in June 2012. It consists of a former sports grandstand that has been converted into lecture theatres, and a new building housing laboratories.

The structure contains five large lecture theatres, which can host capacities ranging from over 400 delegates to 200 plus delegates and a number of smaller tutorial rooms.  The lawns offer a perfect space to set-up a marquee for tea/coffee breaks and delegate lunches or even an evening event in warmer weather.  The venue has hosted many high-level conferences successfully and is a great option for a conference of this stature.
