Everything at the venue is in a perfect condition and conducive to an excellent convention or conference. The venue has free wifi. The catering is also of a very high standard.

I have attended conferences several times at this venue and it has everything you need. Easily customised event halls, good wifi, toilet facilities, honest and helpful staff (misplaced my smartphone several times and had it returned by the cleaning staff). Highly recommended for trainings, workshops, conferences. I think Cape Town made a good investment decision with this one!

I attended a conference in August-Sept at this venue. There was no complaint. The place is well laid out and the ground staff are efficient and very helpful. It's directly opposite the Westin hotel (5 seconds walk) and a stone throw away from the Cape Town Waterfront. Easy access to train station and small shops too. I'd come here again.

offers always events that are also very relevant for locals and inspiring for visitors. See the one mutual wine trophy to get 100 wineries in one evening

I've attended a number of events there. Clean, light and airy, adjacent to the waterfront (canal barge) and a short walk into town.

I recently had a business meeting at the restaurant on the ground floor. This is a large venue where the settings are such that private conversations can be held. Attentive professional staff were on hand to address our needs at short notice. It is a world class setting - brightly lit, clean and relatively new infrastructure.

The Cape Town International Convention Centre is a World class venue for conferences and expos in the Western Cape and particularly the Mother City of Cape Town. It is a premium convention facility, offering massive expo space through to small presentation venues and is easy to get to because of its proximity to the freeway that connects to the National...

We had an award ceremony on this venue it is so huge to accommodate large number of guests, ample parking space, lifts and escalators, friendly staff and world class facilities. The food served is so high standard and good for any racial group.
