Our winning formula proves its worth
We are proud to have received various accolades since we opened Century City Conference Centre in 2016. Besides winning several national and international awards, and being part of a green mixed use development that has received a top 4-Star Green Star sustainable building certification, we have also received consistently positive feedback and praise from our wide range of satisfied clients. But don’t take our word for it: see for yourself!
The Global M.I.C.E.* Summit is an annual conference and expo that brings together experts and industry stakeholders in the Meetings & Business Events Industry (Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conferences & Exhibitions). The summit focuses on analysing the global trends and opportunities in the Meetings & Business Events industry. The event showcases innovative and sustainable products and solutions that are driving forward Africa’s MICE industry. *M.I.C.E. – Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Events/Exhibitions
The conference and award organisers, Future Group, engaged with members of the Association of Southern African Travel Agents, the African Business Travel Association and the Southern African Association for the Conference Industry to vote for the service providers they believed offered the most to travellers.
Century City Conference Centre and Hotel (CCCC & H) Joint CEO Gary Koetser says this award is particularly important to the management and staff of the two venues that make up the specialist hospitality precinct, because votes are cast by professionals who toil at the coalface of the MICE industry every day and in the course of their business, make contact with scores of venues and service staff across the country.
Koetser’s counterpart Glyn Taylor reiterates the tribute conferred with this particular award: “Since opening our doors in early 2016 we have had phenomenal feedback and we are honoured to have that recognised by the industry. CCCC & H’s considerable percentage of repeat business is testament to our service excellence and our attention to detail across all guest and client touch-points.”
SAACI is a professional association that promotes sustainability within the business events industry in Southern Africa. The internationally recognised association facilitates an enabling environment for learning, growth and collaboration amongst business events professionals.
Flexibility, exceptional staff, advanced technology, friendliness and sustainability were cited in praise of CCCC&H during the awards ceremony. “Their relentless focus on sustainability, attention to detail and service delivery are just a few of the reasons why they are a worthy recipient of this prestigious SAACI industry award. We are very proud to have them as a loyal and active SAACI member…” said SAACI CEO, Rudi van der Vyver.
Sustainability is part of CCCC’s DNA. With our buildings and various operational processes designed according to strict green building principles and guidelines, we strive to minimise the impact of our operations on the earth, and have implemented a number of policies and operational procedures to this end.
CCCC and Century City Hotel (CCH), are both situated within Century City (CC) Square – the all-green commercial and hospitality hub of the Century City district in Cape Town. The entire precinct and all buildings within the space where designed and developed by Rabie Property Group as standard-setting examples of sound, sustainable and environmentally-friendly building practices.
Our commitment to minimising environmental impact was acknowledged in 2017 with the award of a four-star Green Star (Custom Mixed-Use Design) certification by GBCSA. CC Square is the first mixed use development in the Western Cape, and the second in South Africa, to be awarded this top rating in the Design category.
“Thank you for helping to make our first Woolies Food Buying Community Day such a success. You and your team’s can-do attitude and willingness to do whatever was required was truly appreciated. Thank you for accommodating the little extra things we needed too, and we will definitely recommend your venue to others.”
“I want to thank you and your staff for your dedication in ensuring that our digital event ran smoothly. We do believe that we found an amazing solution to the conference during very complicated times. Your staff were, as always, supportive and very accommodating during the changed agenda and meal arrangements.
Please share my gratitude with the staff that assisted us in our new journey. Maintain your good health and keep being the wonderful people that you are.”
“I just wanted to say well done on an excellent conference. The SASMA/BRICSCESS 2019 was probably the most well-organised conference I have ever attended. (And I have attended a number in my years in publishing.) The friendly professionalism displayed by everyone involved from the moment I arrived to unpack my boxes, to when I left was simply fantastic. If only all conferences could be staffed by such magnificent and capable people.
The conference venue and their staff were simply in a class of their own and nothing was too much trouble. What a pleasure to have that at a conference. All the delegates/attendees etc who came past my stand mentioned how fabulous they found the conference. I did not hear one negative word about it. I thought you would like to know that.”
“You and your team rolled out the red carpet for us yet again and we have nothing but raving reviews.
The professionalism of your team, the incredible spread of delicious food, there was nothing that could be faulted.
All-in-all another exceptional CCCC Delta event.
Many thanks to you and your team and look forward to seeing you soon.”
“I wanted to send you a message now that it is all over to say a HUGE thank you for making my vision and dream come true. From the moment we sat together in October to the last song that played on the night you have been with me the entire way.
I know we had our challenges and were not always the easiest but we have set a standard now for this event that will be hard to follow. It has been hailed as the best BOY to date. Thank you for putting up with all our crazy requests and ideas and we look forward to the next one. You honestly went above and beyond in so many ways. Especially the chef, last minute on Friday afternoon.
Please pass this onto the owners and GM’s they need to know how amazing you are. I could not have been prouder to have worked with a more wonderful team.”
