Cape Town International Convention Centre information
Since opening in 2003, the CTICC has barely paused for breath, packing in a busy annual programme of musical performances, exhibitions, conferences and other events, such as the Cape Town International Jazz Festival and Design Indaba. An extension to the complex is currently rising up on the plot between the current building and Artscape, almost doubling its size.
In the main entrance hall, Baobabs, Stormclouds, Animals and People is a giant relief sculpture, a collaboration between Brett Murray and the late San artist Tuoi Steffaans Samcuia of the !Xun and Khwe San Art and Cultural Project.
