Why Conference Attendees Love Century City…
Within walking distance from your hotel (if you’re staying with us), and conveniently placed on the N1 freeway a mere ten minutes from Cape Town’s CBD, you’ll find Century City.
This uniquely secure, privately managed, 250-hectare estate is a global standard-bearer in New Urban planning. Seamlessly blending residential, commercial, retail, and leisure components along the serene waterways and canals that stretch over eight kilometres, it’s a city-within-a-city.
Positioned in the heart of the greater Cape Town metropole, Century City is well-served by an extensive road network offering straightforward access to the entirety of the Western Cape. Not only does this make it an ideal venue for conferences and business events, but its well-structured public transportation also makes it easy for attendees and guests.

The Century City Experience
Surrounded by beautifully landscaped surroundings, intelligently designed, and meticulously maintained, Century City provides an unrivalled quality of life. It pulses with energy, vitality and concentration, yet equally offers serene moments for relaxation.
Conference attendees can enjoy premium shopping opportunities within South Africa, or find tranquillity on the serene Intaka Island, an award-winning wetland nature reserve, mere minutes away from the retail haven of Canal Walk.
Various entertainment and leisure activities make Century City a distinctive destination for conference-goers, from boat rides, outdoor cinema, canoeing, stand-up paddling, moonlit hikes, to following an art trail.
