Venue for Meeting – Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC)           


While the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is still relatively young as far as international convention centres go, it has made a significant economic, social and environmental impact in the ten years since it first opened its doors.

The vision of the centre was first conceived in the late 1990s when it was recognised that a truly international convention centre would fill an obvious gap in the city of Cape Town’s tourism infrastructure, and have the potential to deliver a phenomenal impact on the local, provincial and national economy. As a result, the CTICC was born, with the City of Cape Town and the Provincial Government of the Western Cape as its largest shareholders - effectively putting ownership of the centre in the hands of the people of the city.

Upon its opening in 2003, the state-of-the-art CTICC was recognised by the South African Institute of Architects as “flexible, modern, international and cool...made for its varied purposes”. Since then, thanks to its size and sophistication, the CTICC has put Cape Town on the map as a major international Congress destination.

Ideally located on Cape Town's foreshore, adjacent to the Waterfront, the central business district and leading hotels, the CTICC is an exceptional facility that meets the expectations of delegates and organisers alike.

Open spaces, natural light, trees and greenery, and bold, distinctive artworks expressing African and Cape essences ensure that the centre is not only technologically sophisticated but also aesthetically pleasing.

Since its opening, the CTICC has continued to raise the profile of Cape Town as a sought after international leisure and business tourism destination. It has also maintained and grown the economic and social contributions it makes to the city of Cape Town, the Western Cape Province, and the country as a whole. 

The CTICC is fully accessible, meeting international standards for wheel-chair access, designated drop-off points and parking bays, toilets for the physically disabled, and elevators with Braille inscription.

It is a wonderful location for the fifth annual EMEA Regional Council meeting, in the heart of a beautiful and truly international city.

Venue for the Drinks Reception and Conference Dinner – SuikerBossie Restaurant


The venue for the Conference Dinner has changed, we will now be hosting this at the SuikerBossie Restaurant in Hout Bay, approximately 20 minutes drive from the CTICC. 

The venue boasts magnificent views overlooking the valley of Hout Bay with Chapmans Peak below. Flanked on the west by Llandudno beach and with Table Mountain forming the backdrop to the Restaurant this will be a perfect setting for an enjoyable evening.

February in Cape Town can typically see temperatures of 25°C in the day and 15°C at night so you may wish to wear something suitable for that climate, particularly as the reception drinks will be held outside where you will be able to enjoy the breathtaking views.
