The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) scooped the award for hosting the Most Memorable event for 2010 at the Exhibition and Event Association of South Africa’s (EXSA) Annual Awards dinner, which was held last week.This event, which was took place at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, commemorates industry role-players in the exhibition and events industry, who have made significant strides in raising the global competitiveness of the local exhibition and events industry.
CTICC, Chief Operating Officer, Joey Pather said the centre is delighted to win this award. The centre, which was selected as one of the top three finalists was judged on the successful hosting of the Third Lausanne International Congress on World Evangelization, which was held at the CTICC in October this year.
“What made this event, which attracted an international audience of over 5000 people unique, was the fact that the CTICC played a pivotal role in organising all logistics of this event” says Pather. For the duration of this conference the centre prepared over 72 000 meals and operated 24/7 in order to ensure the success of this event.
The centre met and exceeded the stringent criteria for this award, which took into consideration elements such as venue location, venue and operational logistics, service excellence and client experiences.
Pather concluded by saying that the fact the CTICC won this prestigious award is further testament to the world class service excellence that is synonymous with the CTICC. “The centre is well on its way to achieving its vision of being the best long haul international convention centre by 2020.”
