Skal International awards Premier Alan Winde the prestigious annual Karl Twiggs Award.

The Cape Town International Convention Centre, East Expansion, is complete.

The City of Cape Town contributed R550 million toward the cost of the 31 148 sqm expansion, which adds 10 000 sqm of multipurpose conference and exhibition space through six halls across two floors.

The facility also includes 3 000 sqm of informal and formal meeting space in the form of four larger meeting suites, a terrace room, and five smaller meeting pod rooms.

The new centre is built across six floors and has more exterior balconies. CTICC 2 will also be able to operate as an independent facility. Its design received a four-star Green Star rating by The Green Building Council of South Africa.

Construction of the sky bridge across the Heerengracht connecting CTICC 1 with CTICC 2 will commence in 2018.
