Cape Town International Convention Centre

The imposing Convention Centre was completed by Van der Merwe Miszewski Architects in 2003. On top of hosting prestigious local and international conferences, it has also become associated with a set of calendar events including Cape Town Fashion Week, Design Indaba, The Good Food and Wine Show and the Cape Town International Jazz Festival. Most recently, it also saw Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron doing her best Lotto-girl rendition during the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ final draw.

The idea 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. And in a few short years, this exceptional centre has grown into a shining example of the power of effective partnerships.
