The Century City Conference Centre and Hotel is on track to open in February 2016 and the first bookings have already been confirmed.
According to Glyn Taylor and Gary Koetser, joint CEOs of the Century City Conference Centre and Hotel (Pty) Ltd, they anticipate taking handover of the buildings in November this year allowing them to be comfortably operational by their first confirmed bookings in February 2016.
Taylor said the CCCC had been designed to complement the Cape Town International Conference Centre and to add to the allure of Cape Town as the top conference city in Africa.
“We launched the CCCC to the hospitality trade at the recent Meetings Africa 2015 convention in Johannesburg and it was very well received.
“Literally thousands of people flocked to our stand including the Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom and the project created huge excitement. It was encouraging to see from the interactions we had there that the Western Cape is clearly seen not only as one of the World’s leading leisure destinations but as a forerunner for business travel globally.”
Koetser added that the Century City Conference Centre and Hotel are part of a significant private equity investment by the Rabie Property Group to promote business travel to the Western Cape.
“They understand the longevity and sustainability of business travel and there is no doubt that the new conference centre and hotel are generating a huge amount of interest from the industry. We are being inundated with inquiries and confirmed bookings are growing on a daily basis.”
Koetser and Taylor said that they had attended the Incentive Business Travel and Meetings Expo as well as the World Travel Market Expo at the CTICC in April, before travelling to Frankfurt to showcase the Century City Conference Centre and Hotel to the international trade at IMEX as part of the SA Convention Bureau’s stand.
The new hotel will bring the total number of hotel rooms within easy walking distance of the Conference Centre to 600.
