CONFERENCES: Cape Town Bags Two More Majors

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

TWO more international conferences will be hosted in Cape Town, bringing to 13 the number of association conferences secured since April 2010, reinforcing the old adage that perseverance eventually pays off.

The World Congress of Nephrology (the medical sub-specialty dealing with the kidneys) in 2015 and the Options on the Control of Influenza conference in 2013, will jointly contribute R82.5 million to the provincial coffers and generate in excess of 26 000 bednights. Lobbying for the right to host the Nephrology conference started in 2005, while Cape Town only won the bid to host the Influenza congress the second time around.

The economic impact of the 13 conferences being hosted in Cape Town is estimated at more than R280 million. Securing these bids results from close collaboration between the various industry partners, amongst others the Cape Town & Western Cape Convention Bureau, the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) and marketing activities under the umbrella of the BestCities Global Alliance of Convention Bureaux, of which Cape Town is a member.

Of the 13, the following 4 conferences are major, jointly drawing 9 500 delegates to our shores and generating a total of 35 000 bednights:

IFEA Endodontic World Congress 2016

International Conference on Emergency Medicine in 2016

World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) World Congress in 2014, and

Congress of the International Society of University Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ISUCRS) in 2014.
