ICC Durban voted top African venue




For the seventh year running, the International Convention Centre, Durban has been named 'Africa's leading conference centre' at the World Travel Awards Africa ceremony, which was held at the venue.


Reigning King of the Zulu nation, His Majesty King Zwelithini Goodwill kaBhekuzulu, opened the first World Travel Awards Africa Ceremony, watched by some 400 VIPs and leading figures. Those present included: the Mayor of Durban, Cllr. Obed Mlaba; James Wilson, chief executive of Dubai World Africa; and Miller Motola, chief executive of ICC Durban.

 



ICC Durban: Africa's best venue again



Motola commented: “The ICC Durban feels honoured to be hosting such a prestigious awards ceremony and equally honoured that the first leg of the Grand Tour is happening in the sunny city of Durban. This is indeed an eventful day. The ICC Durban has regained the celebrated title of Africa’s Leading Convention Centre. It is an accolade we will carry proudly when hosting the many major international and local events at this centre.”

It was also announced that ICC Durban will host the Ceremony in 2009. The deal was signed just hours before the event by Motola and Graham Cooke, president and founder of World Travel Awards.

“The ICC is a state-of-the-art world class conference centre and perfect for such a prestigious ceremony for African travel and tourism," said Cooke. "We have been delighted with not only the facilities, but also the wonderful support from the ICC staff.”
