The Durban International Convention Centre (Durban ICC) announces its nomination for “Africa’s Leading Meetings & Conference Centre 2024” at the World Travel Awards.

Established in 1993, the World Travel Awards recognize and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry. The awards are voted for by travel and tourism professionals, as well as consumers worldwide.

Speaking on the nomination, Chief Executive Officer of the Durban ICC, Ms Lindiwe Rakharebe, expresses her gratitude and excitement, stating, “We are deeply honoured to be nominated once again for Africa’s top award at the World Travel Awards. This nomination is a testament to the support of our clients, the hard work and dedication of our team, as well as our firm commitment to providing world-class experiences for all our events.”

Rakharebe further highlights the significance of the nomination, stating, “To be recognised by the World Travel Awards is a tremendous achievement, and winning this title again would be a dream. It is worth noting that the Durban ICC has won this title no less than 18 times in this category’s 23-year history, a remarkable testament to our ongoing commitment to excellence.”

The Durban ICC has a reputation as Africa’s leading meetings and conference venue, offering state-of-the-art facilities, world-class service, and expertise in event management, with over two decades of experience hosting high-profile events.

Public voting for the World Travel Awards is now open, and the winners will be announced at the awards ceremony later this year. The Durban ICC encourages its clients, partners, and supporters to cast their votes.
