Cty of Johannesburg's Department of Transport Workshops 2012
The City of Johannesburg’s Transport department hosted an international speaker/consultant who specialises on road and infrastructure engineering, in particular when it comes to the use of public spaces. Gil Penalosa, from Canada, made presentations to various stakeholders of the City of Joburg, these included road engineers, town planners, cyclists and NGO’s. Growth Media was contracted to coordinate and manage preparations for these workshops, contracting with caterers and venue providers, which took place over two days in different venues. Our experience made the preparations and the actual events to be a success for the City as it managed to receive valuable feedback about road infrastructure plans and challenges that commuters faced.
