Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC)
The Cape Town International Convention Centre Company (Convenco) is the holding company of the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). Convenco was formed in 1999 through collaboration between the City of Cape Town, the Provincial Government of the Western Cape and the business sector. It is jointly owned by the City of Cape Town (50.2% shareholding), the Provincial Government of the Western Cape (25.1% shareholding), and SunWest International (Pty) Ltd (24.7% shareholding).
The primary objective behind the formation of the holding company was to deliver a world-class international convention centre in Cape Town that would provide meeting, convention and exhibition services and facilities for local and international organisations and their guests. It was envisaged by the Convenco co-founders that the CTICC would have a sustainable positive impact on the economic and social development of Cape Town, the Western Cape and South Africa as a whole.
Opened by former president, Nelson Mandela in 1997, the Durban ICC was South Africa’s first International Convention Centre and has played a pioneering role in attracting international events to our shores since its inception. This world-class facility, renowned for its high standards of service excellence, has successfully staged some the world’s most prestigious and complex events.
