Opened by former president, Nelson Mandela in 1997, the Durban ICC was South Africa’s first International Convention Centre and has played a pioneering role in attracting international events to its shores since its inception. This world-class facility, renowned for its high standards of service excellence, has successfully staged some the world’s most prestigious and complex events. This multi-award winning Centre has been voted Africa’s Leading Meetings and Conference Centre by the World Travel Awards no fewer than 16 times since 2001 and has been rated amongst the World’s Top 15 convention centres by The International Association of Congress Centres (AIPC). The Durban ICC offers the largest flat floor, column-free multi-purpose event space in Africa. Incorporating the Durban ICC Arena and Durban Exhibition Centre, the complex offers 112,000m² of flexible exhibition and meeting space. Service excellence is the heart-beat of the Durban ICC team and this commitment to quality is expressed through its five-star grading by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa and its several international ISO Certifications. The Centre maintains its ISO9001 certification for Quality Management in its operational systems, ISO14001 for its Environmental Responsibility, OHSAS18001 for Health and Safety, and its ISO22000 certification ensures the highest international standards of Food Safety. The Durban ICC delivers a world-class events experience, which exceeds our clients’ expectations in an innovative, sustainable and proudly African way. Little wonder then, that the Durban ICC is recognised as Africa’s leading convention centre.
