Cape Town has the perfect blend of ingredients to provide the ideal backdrop for any event: world class facilities, adventure, wildlife, magnificent scenery, an efficient infrastructure and a rich cultural diversity. Few regions can match the fun, beauty and excitement you'll find in Cape Town.
Cape Town is already Africa's most popular convention city and is constantly voted one of the top international destinations in the world. Filled with picture-postcard beauty and a surprising wealth of biodiversity, the City is blessed to have the country's top tourist attractions on its doorstep: the imposing icon of Table Mountain; the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront; Cape Point - place of myths and legends; the Winelands - every wine lover's dream; the stunning Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Robben Island, a short boat trip away.
The City of Cape Town, which has the task of sustaining this unique environment, has also to face up to other challenges. Debilitating poverty, on the one extreme, and unsustainable patterns of consumption, on the other, are global problems against which the City has developed several strategies. These include a labour-intensive public works programme; the supply of energy efficient installations, such as solar water heaters, in low cost housing, setting targets for the City's use of renewable energy and managing water demand.
