Four International Conferences for ICC Durban

The Durban ICC has been secured as the host venue for four international conferences including the World Toilet Summit in 2012, the 6th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria in 2013, the World Association of Cooperative Education in 2013 and the International World Leisure Conference in 2016.

In addition together with the Durban KZN Convention Bureau and other city partners the convention centre is in the final stages of contracting one additional international conference which will take place in 2014.

In excess of 5,800 delegates are expected to attend the five conferences. “Our success in securing these international conferences has been reliant on great teamwork with the Durban KZN Convention Bureau and the support of all stakeholders in the city and province which is key when competing for these events on an international stage,” said ICC Durban’s, Chief Executive, Julie-May Ellingson.

The delegates attracted to these five conferences over a full fifteen day period will generate an estimated R217.5-million in economic impact, based on a per day delegate spend of approximately R2,500 for the City of Durban.

Durban was able to secure these events despite stiff competition from other countries such as Japan, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, New Zealand and India.
