The congress, organised by the International Union of Psychological Science, has attracted 5,000 delegates from 103 countries.

A joint bid from The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) and Cape Town Convention Bureau’s to host this event has provided Cape Town with a significant boost to its economy to the tune of nearly £8 million.

Joey Pather, Chief Operating Officer of the CTICC, said that the partnership comes at a perfect time as the CTICC embarks on its expansion project. He said: "The CTICC expansion will add significant capacity to Cape Town’s ability to host large-scale international association conferences of this nature."
