Durban International Convention, South Africa
The International Convention Centre Durban (ICC) is one of the most advanced conference facilities in the world.
Flexibility and versatility are key factors in the design of this state-of-the-art technology-driven centre.
It is a purpose-built, fully air-conditioned centre with three convention halls that are interlinked but separate. Moveable walls allow for a number of different venue configurations. Alternatively the halls can be opened up to form one large venue with seating for 5000 delegates or 7000m squared of column free floor space. Together with the adjacent Exhibition Centre, the ICC can double its capacity to accommodate 10 000 conference delegates. The centres can function independently or as two halves of one whole. This is achieved by closing Walnut Road, a brick-paved concourse between the two centres, to provide easy access for delegates.
Little wonder then that ICC Durban is where Africa and the world meet.

Africa's leading conference destination - is a vibrant city where a blend of local cultures - African, Asian and European - is reflected in a mosaic of architectural styles, a melting pot of traditions and colourful cuisine.
Its privileged location on the Eastern seaboard makes it South Africa's only destination offering warm winters and tropical summers -320 sunny days a year. It is an obvious choice for conference planners, tourists and sports enthusiasts, because this is the city that sizzles and where the sun never sets.
Conveniently situated and highly accessible, Durban is less than an hour's flying time from Johannesburg and once you arrive, everything you need is within easy reach.
