Sandton has emerged as Johannesburg's financial district with the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), and other major financial institutions having moved to the area, turning the area into the financial centre of Southern Africa. Many of the big players in the information technology sector have also settled in Sandton, making it the ultimate business destination for professionals the world over. As Africa's business capital, Sandton has become a hub for a variety of industries like design and textiles. Kramerville, once a run-down industrial area, is now the centre of these industries in Sandton.

Named "the richest square mile in Africa", the Sandton central commercial node, centred on the suburbs of Sandown and Sandhurst, has some of the best and most expensive commercial properties and offices in South Africa.

The Sandton Convention Centre is arguably one of the continent's largest and most versatile convention centres, creating an unequalled business and conferencing environment. From event-style functions hosting thousands of guests to international trade and industry exhibitions, big conferences and smaller meetings, this venue offers excellent service and world class facilities.

The business centres of Woodmead, Sunninghill, Rivonia, Bryanston and the greater Johannesburg area are all within easy reach along the easily navigated highways of the city.
