The Cape Town International Convention Centre has added yet another acronym to the already long list of abbreviations: CTICC.The CTICC is a world-class conference centre and it is seriously user friendly and Feng Shui compatible. The ergonomy of this state-of-the-art architectural triumph is so slick that you can drive straight from the Convention Centre or CTICC parking lot to the Cape Town International airport via an off ramp onto the N2.
One of the reasons that the Cape Town International Convention Centre or CTICC is such a reveered venue is that it is in the thick of it all so to speak. According to the capetownconvention.com website the convention centre is within walking distance of over 3500 rooms ranging from budget to luxury accommodation. Not only is the Cape Town Convention Centre close to some of the best hotels, but the V&A Waterfront is also just around the corner.
The much admired Cape Town International Convention Centre is popular with local and international visitors and it has room enough to accommodate the functions and delegates of both. Some of the events and exhibitions hosted at the centre this year include the Encounters Documentary Film Festival, Cape Town Fashion Week, Cape Town Book Fair and the Gourmet Festival.
I have yet to meet a Capetonian who does not proudly approve of the Cape Town Convention Centre with its glass facades and waterfeatures. The RMB Winex, one of South Africa’s premier wine festivals, starts September 6. Offering the perfect excuse to pop in at the CTICC for the wine festival this week to take a peek at the convention centre, if you haven’t already.
The versatile Cape Town International Convention Centre offers exhibition, banqueting, conference and function facilities and it is only getting bigger… much bigger.
