With the nearby sea and harbour, the world famous V&A Waterfront and a plethora of Cape Town hotel accommodation, the environment surrounding the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is truly cosmopolitan, and is, without doubt, on equal footing with other international convention centres.
Within walking distance are the city's major hotels, providing over 3 000 rooms of 3-star quality and above - including the 483-room deluxe The Westin Cape Town integrated into the convention centre complex. In total, the city has more than 15 000 rooms to offer in hotels, inns and guesthouses within a 45-minute radius of the city centre, which has an efficient road network and good local transportation.
The centre provides flexibility without compromise. All facilities are accommodated under a single roof, including an integrated deluxe hotel, dedicated exhibition space, and generous banqueting and meeting facilities.
The centre has been meticulously designed with absolute respect for the end user and the most modern amenities and technology as mandatory ingredients. Crucial in meeting conference organiser expectations is flexibility, which is achieved by providing:
Dedicated 10 000m2-exhibition space on the ground floor, which is column-free, rectangular, height between 10 and 16m, with power, water, and data communications every 4.5m throughout the hall and a floor load of up to 30kN / m2. This space can accommodate 10 000 delegates in plenary session or can be configured into 5 separate venues for smaller exhibitions, banquets or conferencing.
Two raked fixed seating auditoriums for 1500 and 620 people, as well as a wide variety of 33 breakout rooms of which 20 can be configured to different sizes.
The largest and most advanced kitchen facility in the Western Cape ensures superb banqueting facilities at the Cape Town International Convention Center with separation of traffic flow allowing access to all banqueting venues in the centre without interfering with the delegates.
