For the first time ever, South Africa will host the ICCA Association Meetings Programme (AMP) between the 18th and the 20th June 2019 in the city of Durban where over 100 delegate comprised of ICCA members and various association executives, will congregate over the three days. The meeting will take place at the Durban International Convention Centre which is also celebrating its 21st anniversary this year (2018).
Chief Convention Bureau Officer at the South Africa National Convention Bureau (SANCB), a unit of South African Tourism, Amanda Kotze-Nhlapo said: “We are thrilled to welcome back our ICCA family to South Africa after we hosted a very successful ICCA annual congress in 2004 in Cape Town. Durban is a diverse African city that is focused on investment and growing the economy. It is therefore not a coincidence that the city attracts such important meetings.”
In committing to the ethos of the “Meet Here. Grow Anywhere” campaign, South Africa is continuing its commitment in investment in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the business events sector. “Our SMEs are an integral part of our tourism offering. They are what makes South Africa an excellent value for money, authentic and enriching business events destination,” concludes Kotze-Nhlapo.
