TOP AWARD FOR ICC (article first published : 2001-05-17)

The 2001 World Travel Award for Africa’s Leading Conference Centre has been won by the International Convention Centre Durban. The 8th World Travel Awards took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with winners being voted by 25,000 travel agents from 182 countries.

The World Travel Awards were set up in 1993 to celebrate excellence in the global travel and tourism industry. Since then, dedicated travel professionals and clients have come to regard the World Travel Awards as the best endorsement that any travel product could receive.

The city of Durban has also received worldwide recognition. It was ranked by ICCA (The International Congress and Convention Association), as Africa’s top international convention destination following ICC’s successful staging of some of the world’s most sought after conferences.

Since opening in August 1997, the Centre has staged 1 200 events and hosted over 700,000 people, generating an additional R1,7 billion income to the region.
