The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is a convention centre in Cape Town, South Africa. The centre opened in June 2003. It hosted the Final Draw of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa. It is run as a partnership between the City of Cape Town, the Western Cape government, and Business Cape.

The centre takes up approximately 6.1 ha (15 acres) on the city’s Foreshore and is within easy reach of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, major hotels and the rest of the city centre. The CTICC is served by the Westin Grand Hotel located on the same premises in the north-western corner, and is situated close to the city centre.

The convention centre boasts exhibition and trade show space of approximately 11,200 m2 (121,000 sq ft) that can be divided into multiple conference or banquet venues; two high-tech auditoriums with seating for about 1 600 delegates; and a 2,000 m2 (22,000 sq ft) Grand Ballroom, which can be divided by soundproof partitioning. Catering is offered at the premises.

In 2013 the centre hosted 537 events, an increase from 514 in 2012. Over the past decade it is estimated that the CTICC has contributed over R 22 billion to the country's GDP and over R 7 billion to the Western Cape's economy.[1]

Expansion process[edit]

Due to the success of the CTICC it was expanded in 2010. A second round of expansion work is due to be completed in 2017.
