Cape Town Proving Capability to Host Events

Cape Town has proven that it excels in hosting world-class events that attract people from all over the world.

Event visitors spend money locally and have a positive impact on the local economy. For example, 2017’s Cape Town Carnival accommodation revenue amounted to over R6 million (USD494,951).

“Since hosting a successful 2010 FIFA World Cup, the city has proven its capabilities and also increased capacity at Cape Town International Airport,” outlined Enver Duminy, CEO, Cape Town Tourism. “There are new hotels with more facilities; Cape Town International Convention Centre has recently opened its extension and the Century City Conference Centre is also a healthy addition to the events environment.”
