CTICC Ambassador Programme

The CTICC Ambassador Programme is geared at raising the competitiveness of Cape Town as a sought after international association conference destination. Modelled on international standards of best practice, this initiative aims to tap into the resources of Cape Town's academic, medical and scientific fraternity in order to attract a greater share of the international association market. The programme involves recruiting recognised experts or key opinion leaders in their field, who can serve as ambassadors for Cape Town and help champion the destination abroad.
