Cape Town International Convention Centre
Since opening its doors to the world in 2003, the CTICC has become a leading events venue for steadily increasing numbers of discerning business people, professional bodies, and conference and exhibition organisers from across South Africa, Africa and the world. Situated on the outskirts of the Central Business District (CBD), the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is close to the vibrant beat of the city’s heart. At its official opening, former President Thabo Mbeki called the development ‘a symbol of hope, a symbol of our glorious past, a symbol of modernity and a symbol of future prosperity’.
It is a notion that is as true today as it was then because the CTICC has proved hugely successful as a place where ideas become reality. Of the 5000 events hosted since inception, 450 have been international association conferences across a broad spectrum of sectors including agri-processing, medical, property, the green economy and ICT.
With the opening of the CTICC, the reclaimed Foreshore area of the city has blossomed and now forms a lively link between the CBD and the city’s harbor, including the Country’s most visited venue, the V&A Waterfront with its mesmerizing list of restaurants, boutiques, malls and creative characters.
Many of the city’s other landmarks – shops, buildings, cultural attractions – and top hotels, are within a few minutes’ walking distance of the Cape Town International Convention Centre – and it is a short 20-minute drive from the Cape Town International Airport.
