the CTICC as they call it is not very amaizing at all. it host amazing events though. cape town jazz festival is only one of them. but i kind of like coming to this area for a walk. if you follow the road through the main entrance you have a little pond where you can sit and rest. further down...

The CTICC or Cape Town International Convention Centre is a world class facility that hosts a variety of conventions, seminars and expos. Its location in the CBD is great for tourists and the marketing side. Attached to the CTICC is the Westin Grand hotel, and it is walking distance to Long Street and the V&A Waterfront. The highlight of course... More

Good venue for large conferences, spotlessly clean ablution facilities, plenty service staff, good lighting and enough space for easy movement between conference and eating venues.The food was buffet style with a wide variety of different dishes beautifully and artistically presented. The problem was the lack of flavour dish after dish after dish, it was rather weird to have such a... More

I attended the recent WTM Africa there and I would have to say that the convention center is on par with those of other countries that host such big events. Facilities are modern, it is spacious and the random artwork in and around the center is amazing. Ample parking, ample shops for refreshment and lovely kept gardens.

I have done the CTIJF a couple of times. Its always worth the visit. This year - 2014, my highlights were Kyle Shepherd and Bokani Dyer, and the local jazz outfit that was lead by Jimmy Dludlu and co. There was stuff I could not see in a pretty full program. I liked Chris Dave and his band, also not... More

The convention centre is one of its type and it really is very nice. It is very huge and grand and can hold many exhibitions of various types. I really liked this place along with my friends

Not quite what I expected. Thought it was about interior design but more about art and crafts. Still picked up some small items like gorgeous bath towels from Mungo.

Attended the Mining. Indaba in February. The conference is a big event with many thousands attending, and CTICC copes well. As part of the event the organisers provide discounted parking and the ability to park is significant. The centre is well capable of handling the event there are two criticisms one for the event - there are not a lot... More

CTICC is a nicely organised place. Very close to most of the town favourites. Well organised, good people who are eager to help with a big smile on their faces. If you are traveling for business to Cape town and are looking for a place to have your conferences; this is the place to be!!!

Spent four days at the CTICC in December 2013 for the International Conference on STIs and HIV in Africa. Excellent conference facilities: very comfortable and diverse set of rooms. Also good it is 3 stories high, so that you don't have to walk too far to get from one side to another as you sometimes do at large events. Finaly,... More
