The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CITCC) is the home of extraordinary experiences and offers a host of exciting upcoming events in Cape Town.
The vision for the centre was first conceived in the late 1990s when it was recognised that a truly international convention centre would fill a perceptible gap in the city of Cape Town’s tourism infrastructure, with the potential to deliver a phenomenal impact on the local, provincial and national economy. As a result, the CTICC was founded, with the City of Cape Town and the Provincial Government of the Western Cape as its largest shareholders ─ effectively putting the ownership of the centre in the hands of the people of the city.
The CTICC celebrated its 12th birthday in June 2015. Today it is a multi-purpose conference and exhibition centre in the hub of Cape Town’s business and entertainment centre. It continued to raise the profile of Cape Town as a sought after international leisure and business tourism destination.
With the iconic presence of Table Mountain in the background and situated a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean, the CTICC offers a unique combination of world-class venues and facilities, service-orientated flexibility and professional staff. This enables it to host entertainment and business events that find their place reserved in even the busiest calendars of international and local visitors.
The CTICC is also the first convention centre in Africa to gain three internationally recognised management system certifications simultaneously, and the first in the world to align its reporting to the sustainability requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), ensuring total commitment to the highest levels of quality, care, safety and sustainability.
Global conferences, trade shows and concerts to celebrated stage productions, CTICC caters for everyone – from world-renowned thought leaders to moms and babies at the annual Baby Expo. Bookings to these events can usually be made online, through Computicket, or tickets can be obtained at the door.
The CTICC states: “Our expertise in transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary has seen elegant weddings, glamorous banquets and film shoots come to life. We roll out the red carpet, whether it is a discreet business meeting or an international exhibition. Let the CTICC be your next destination and expect to be amazed by the possibilities.”
