What happens in the event of load shedding or a power cut?

If you wish to make provision for additional electricity requirements this can be accommodated within certain parameters, at your cost. You are not permitted to alter or add to the existing electrical installations on the premises without our prior written approval.
Will I be able to set up registration desks?
Yes, you need to advise us of how many tables and chairs you require for registration and these will be set up in designated areas depending on which venue you are hiring for your function.
Does the JSE offer parking for guests attending a function?
If the function is scheduled between 09:00 and 17:00 the JSE will provide 5 (five) parking bays on the Premises. For events scheduled after 17:30, the JSE will provide parking in the JSE basement on a first-come, first-served basis. There is additional parking in adjacent buildings so that all guests are able to park in designated parking areas.

Over and above venue hire, the JSE offers technical facilities that can accommodate a host of audio-visual requirements, from recording your function to webcasting and conferencing. Preferred Suppliers offer photography, catering, décor and flower services. You would contract directly with these Preferred Suppliers, but a JSE Event Officer would facilitate introductions.

Who are the JSE's preferred suppliers?
What kind of technical equipment does the JSE offer?
If you intend on using specialised additional technical services over and above those offered by the JSE through Standard and Premium equipment packages, the JSE may require you to hire a JSE technician. Details of these equipment packages are available on the Equipment & Facilities page of the website.
The JSE uses the Microsoft operating system in relation to computer equipment. If you run an alternative operating system you would need to ensure that necessary testing is timeously performed during the dry-run to ensure compatibility with our systems.
The supply of telephone sockets, telephone lead extensions, ISDN telephone lines and wireless connections other than those already fixed at our premises is the client’s responsibility.
What about set-up, dry runs and rehearsals for an event?
Venue hire does accommodate a set-up and dismantle time, and you can arrange rehearsal time for your event during these periods. Details of set up costs can be found on our Venue Pricing page.
Can I put up banners and signage to brand my function?
The JSE does allow professionally printed signage in venue areas. These signs can be used with easels or in sign stands. Banners may be hung from the skirting of registration desks, but no banners may be hung along the walls of the public areas of the reception area or foyer. Nothing can be placed over exit doors or positioned to conceal or obscure any exit.
What does it cost to host a function or event at the JSE?
The cost of venue hire and facilities rental will depend on the type of function you are hosting. Our venue hire costs can be found on our Venue Pricing page, while the technical equipment costs are available on the Equipment & Facilities page of the website, and may be amended from time to time. Third party Preferred Suppliers for additional services such as flowers, catering, décor and photography have their own rate cards and will provide a quote based on your requirements.
