DURBAN KWA ZULU NATAL
Durban, the sea-side capital of KwaZulu Natal must surely be one of the most sought after destinations for business conference venues and as a tourist attraction. Why? Because Durban is central in South Africa, easily accessible by air or car and because Durban boasts one of the world’s top Convention Centres and many outstanding hotels and B & B’s apart from the many tourist attractions in the city, on the perimeter and it is a gateway to Game Reserves, Cultural Villages, the Mountains etc.
There are many conference venues in Durban and surrounds and it is pertinent to point out the largest, not only in Durban, not only in South Africa but in Africa!
A focal point of Durban’s business district, the International Convention Centre Durban is a multi-faceted and functional space in an aesthetic environment. Centrally located and just a quarter of an hour from the airport, ICC Durban is minutes from hotels and beaches.
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 Conference Venue in Durban.
Voted Africa’s Leading Conference Centre for six consecutive years by World Travel Awards and in 2004 the ICC Durban was also ranked as one of the top ten conference centres in the world by AIPC.
Durban’s ICC is a purpose-built, fully air-conditioned Business Conference Centre with three convention halls that are interlinked but separate. Moveable walls allow for a number of different conference venue configurations. Alternatively the halls can be opened up to form one large venue with seating for 5000 delegates or 7000 m² of column free floor space.
Together with its sister venue, Durban Exhibition Centre, the ICC Durban can double its capacity to accommodate 10 000 conference delegates.
Closer than breathing, neighbour to the Durban ICC is the HILTON INTERNATIONAL HOTEL offering 5-star, luxury accommodation. The ideal solution to the international traveller.
Many other 3 and 4-star hotels surround Durban, alongside the beach-front, in the city, in Durban North and in the luxury suburb, adjacent to the city, Umhlanga which is the hub of business today while also remaining one of the most popular holiday resorts in South Africa. There is a ‘home-from-home’ to suit every conference delegate’s pocket.
