The Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban has been chosen South Africa's Best Convention Centre 2022 for the third year in a row at the World MICE Awards. Other South African nominees for 2022 were Cape Town International Convention Centre, CSIR International Convention Centre in Pretoria and Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. The finest MICE brands from across the globe were revealed at a star-studded gala ceremony in Amman, Jordan. The Durban ICC is one of the greatest legacies Nelson Mandela gifted to Durban – and even KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa – when he cut the ribbon in the late afternoon of Friday August 8, 1997. The World MICE Awards is a global initiative to recognise and reward excellence in the meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions industry and the results follow a year-long search for the world's leading MICE brands. The MICE market is among the top targets in the South African government's tourism development strategy and has grown rapidly in recent years. The Dubai World Trade Centre was chosen World's Best Convention Centre 2022. The Kenyatta International Convention Centre (Kenya) has been chosen Africa's Best Convention Centre 2022.
