Convention Bureau

The Cape Town and Western Cape Convention Bureau is a strategic business unit of Wesgro, the Western Cape Destination Marketing, Investment and Trade Promotion Agency. The bureau promotes Cape Town and the Western Cape as a premier destination for meetings, incentives, conferences, events, exhibitions and trade fairs.

Cape Town Tourism has partnerships with more than 2 500 industry service providers which operate excellent venues, facilities and services across the city. The Bureau works with these businesses to secure, and successfully host, world-class events and conferences.

Among the successful and varied conferences, exhibitions and congresses held in Cape Town have included the WWF International Congress, the World Energy Council Executive Assembly, the International Meeting of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the Harvard Business School Global Alumni Conference, the World Congress of Anaesthesiology and the International Diabetes World Congress, with more than 12 000 delegates.

The Cape Town and Western Cape Convention Bureau is a certified member of the Best Cities Global Alliance, a unique and innovative partnership amongst top convention cities. The partners of the Alliance are the only Destination Marketing Organisations to have service standards certified by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), resulting in a world-wide certification programme for convention bureau organisations. Certification by LRQA guarantees to clients that the partners of the Alliance live up to these standards.

If you are organising or considering an incentive trip, convention or event in Cape Town, the Bureau is a valuable source of information and assistance.
