Century City Conference Centre on track for 2016 opening

The Century City Conference Centre (CCCC) in Cape Town is expected to open in February next year, with bookings already confirmed.

The Centre, part of a R1bln mixed-use development in the Bridgeways precinct, will have a total capacity of 1,900 across 20 spaces, with a 125-room hotel also planned for the site. 

Joint CEOs Glyn Taylor and Gary Koetser said last month that the construction was on schedule and they anticipate taking handover of the buildings in November.

The conference centre and the hotel with ground floor restaurants and bistros will front onto a large, bustling square which is destined to become the new commercial and hospitality hub of Century City. The new hotel will bring the total number of hotel rooms within easy walking distance of the conference centre to 540.

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," he said.
