The CTICC, as far as convention centers go, is a good venue. The air-con, however, is ridiculously cold. To the extent you get sick and so does everyone around you because it's 26 degrees outside and 16 degrees inside. Ridiculous.

I have attended various conferences & meetings at the CTICC over the years, and have always had a positive experience for these. The exhibitions have not always been worthy of their entrance fee, but that is more an indication on the exhibition & its organisers, than the conference facility, especially since the conferences & meetings have been well catered &...

I am at the African Society for Laboratory Medicine. The Conference Center has everything you need and is very much up to date. The most important for business people the free WiFi really works and is quite fast. This is the third time I am heare and I only can recommend it.

I recently attended the 2014 Africa Oil Week at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. It is an excellent conference venue, has good conference amenities and is very well maintained. The location is great as a number of 5* hotels are across the road from the Centre and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is within close distance.
