Industry Partners

Industry-partners Industry Partners

Industry Partners are corporate companies (corporates) which have entered into partnership agreements with KidZania Johannesburg, with the combined aim of delivering educational and entertaining experiences to visitors.  The focus of KidZania is to educate children about different careers and afford them the opportunity to learn through role-play.  The integration of corporates plays a pivotal role in the KidZania experience, as these companies provide real-world industry “know-how” and the presence of their branding ensures that each space and each career is more realistic.


Our Industry Partners

KidZania's current Industry Partners include more than 960 global and local organizations around the world. Industry Partners vary according to each KidZania location and represent a mix of private corporations, governmental institutions and non-profit organizations.


About our Partners

KidZania works closely with Industry Partners to ensure that we deliver activities which provide each visitor with an authentic and educational experience, whilst echoing the Industry Partner's brand values. Industry Partners' brands are familiar to families; thereby creating realism in the role-playing, where children can associate their experiences with the same brands that they see in the real world.


KidZania partnerships are integrated. An airline knows best how to train pilots and cabin crew. Similarly, a bank knows best how to teach children about saving and investing. David Ngobeni, Governor of KidZania Johannesburg says "Our industry partners are crucial to the success of each career role-play activity, as they offer the necessary authenticity to the KidZania city experience; and, in turn, empower, inspire and educate children."
