CTICC Chief Executive Office Rashid Toefy announced that an award-winning Cape Town trio of architects – Piet Bakker of Stauch Voster Architects, Anya van der Merwe of Van der Merwe Miszewski Architects and Mokena Makeka of Makeka Design Lab – have been awarded the contract for the design of the new expansion of the convention centre.
“It is the goal of the CTICC to be the best long-haul international convention centre by 2020 and this exciting expansion project and the calibre of architects who have been appointed to lead the process, are essential to achieving this goal,” Toefy told the media at a briefing on Thursday morning.
The expansion of the CTICC will be a major boost not only for Cape Town in General, but also for small business operating in the conference and exhibition industry, but also in supporting industries such as hospitality and tourism. Business tourism in particular is major source of income in Cape Town and South Africa.
As a small business in the South African Exhibition and Trade Show Industry HOTT3D is relishing this expansion and looks forward to further growth in our own company.
