CONFERENCES: World Airline Execs To Jet Into Cape Town
Recent Western Cape Business News
Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) has won its bid to bring the world’s top air transport security conference to Cape Town.
The leading players in the global airline and aviation industry will jet into the Mother City when AVSEC World 09 takes place at CTICC on November 10 to 12, 2009. The annual conference which is held under the auspices of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), Airports Council International (ACI) and the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) is expected to attract some 2 000 delegates.
AVSEC World 2009, which will be attended by airline management, security, customs, immigrations, aviation and security consultants, will emphasise the importance of co-operation and co-ordination across all relevant spheres to ensure the security of air transport worldwide. It is seen as the most important meeting place for the global aviation security community.
CTICC managing director Dirk Elzinga, said the winning of the bid to host this conference, which is being held in Africa for the first time, was yet another boost for Cape Town and the convention centre.
“This will not simply be another airline talk-shop. The fact that IATA, ACI and ECAC are endorsing this conference just goes to show the strategic importance of this gathering, which we will be hosting.”
The centre presently has a well-filled portfolio of 137 international congresses booked until 2016.
