Durban secures medical conference

Durban has won the bid to host the 2013 6th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria Pan African Conference (MIM).

The Medical Research Council worked in close collaboration with the Durban KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau and the Durban International Convention Centre to create the winning bid for the medical conference.  

"MIM is the world’s largest gathering of the malaria community, and occurs every three to four years," said James Seymour, chief executive of the Durban KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau." We expect this conference and exhibition to have an economic impact well in excess of R18-million on the Durban and KwaZulu-Natal economy."  

MIM 2013 represents the 26th winning bid that the recently established Durban KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau has facilitated together with its strategic partners.
