The Greyville Exhibition and Events Company to set Guinness World Record

The Greyville Exhibition and Events Company is excited to announce an attempt to beat the existing Guinness World Record for the world’s longest dining table.  


Set to take place at Durban’s Greyville Race Course in March 2015, 1 200 patrons will be served on a 600 metre table within the venue’s vast complex. Participants include some of the city’s most prolific restaurants, hotels, tourism bodies, clubs and charitable organisations.

Corporates, families or members of the public wishing to take part will be treated to a full day of local and international bands & musicians, as well as a menu of picnic hampers of the highest standards.

Executive Director of the Events Company, Alan Vels said: “We want to attempt something novel and unique for Durban whilst allowing the general public to experience the wealth of opportunity that the Greyville Exhibition and Events Complex offers. We will have national and international exposure of the event and will include many significant role players in the city”.

Companies or individuals are able to reserve as many spaces as they wish and restaurants, hotels and caterers will be able to reserve dining space for their own clients and their personal unique cuisine.

The application for the attempt has been received by Guinness World Records and the announcement of the date will follow shortly.


The event (which could become an annual occasion) has attracted a vast amount of interest to date and persons or companies wanting to participate can contact Kim Jackson at the Greyville Exhibition and Events Company on 087 6300 128 or email kim@greyvilleevents.co.za.
