The CTICC’s stylish new building has been formally named CTICC 2.
CTICC 2 has been designed as a seamless extension of the original building, now called CTICC 1, to provide complementary space for large exhibitions or conferences. As such the integration of the two buildings will allow us to form an event venue complex that will affirm Cape Town’s commitment to developing business tourism and driving the knowledge economy of South Africa. However, CTICC 2 will also be able to operate as an entirely independent facility.
The stylish new expansion is 31 148m² in extent and consists of 10 000m² of conference and exhibition space, as well as a further 3 000m² of formal and informal meeting space. In addition, we will be constructing a skybridge across the Heerengracht to connect CTICC 1 with CTICC 2. This should be in place by 2019. In the interim, there will be direct access from CTICC 2 parking, as well as from street level.
The expansion will allow the CTICC to host much larger events and it will also increase the number of events we can host at the same time. Furthermore, the expansion will provide the necessary capacity for clients who wish to grow their events.
