Information about the water situation in Cape Town

Dear ICL20 delegates

Information about the water situation in Cape Town
In the last three years the normally voluminous winter rains (mid-April to end of September) have decreased considerably, to the point where we now have water restrictions in summer, our dry season.  The city relies on tourism as its main industry, and is keen not to let this manifestation of  climate change affect visits to our city.  Please see the official message from the city…  

Our understanding  from the media is that City's plan is not to cut off the water in the Central Business District, where the Convention Centre is.  Furthermore, the conference is being held in the winter which is our rainy season, so that the dams will (we trust) increase their rather low levels come May and June.  Us ordinary residents might face tough times in April, but the water should be flowing in residential taps (not just the hotels) by June.



The CTICC is the Home of Extraordinary Experiences.

A multi-purpose conference and exhibition centre in the hub of Cape Town's business and entertainment centre, the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) combines the impassioned dedication of its capable personnel with an extensive range of premium venues, services and facilities.

Our expertise in transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary has seen elegant weddings, glamorous banquets and film shoots come to life. We roll out the red carpet, whether it is a discreet business meeting or an international exhibition. Let the CTICC be your next destination and expect to be amazed by the possibilities.

The Answer to Cape Town's Call

The vision for the centre was first conceived in the late 1990s when it was recognised that a truly international convention centre would fill a perceptible gap in the city of Cape Town's tourism infrastructure, with the potential to deliver a phenomenal impact on the local, provincial and national economy. As a result, the CTICC was founded, with the City of Cape Town and the Provincial Government of the Western Cape as its largest shareholders ─ effectively putting ownership of the centre in the hands of the people of the city.

By June 2003, this vision was achieved and the CTICC has continued to raise the profile of Cape Town as a sought after international leisure and business tourism destination. It has also maintained and grown the economic and social contributions it makes to the city of Cape Town, the Western Cape Province and South Africa.

Be Amazed by the Possibilities

With the iconic presence of Table Mountain in the background and a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean, the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) offers a unique combination of world-class venues and facilities, service-orientated flexibility and professional staff committed to exceed the expectations of our clients and their guests.

This multi-purpose convention centre was designed to amaze you with the possibilities ─ providing highly advanced technology services, large-scale capacity venues, fully equipped boardrooms and on-site five-star accommodation.
