Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (ICC)
Durban’s flagship conference venues, transport infrastructure and accommodation options have positioned the city as the ideal host for ICANN-47. All of the sessions will be held at the world-class Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (ICC), centrally located close to Durban’s beaches and hotels, and just a half-hour drive from King Shaka International Airport.
The ICC has been named Africa’s leading convention centre in the World Travel Awards nine times since 2001, and ranks among the World’s top 10 convention centres. It has also won the award for the most Environmentally-Conscious Congress Centre by the European Inventive and Business Travel and Meetings Exhibition.
The ICC, including the Durban Exhibition Centre (DEC), the Arena and the paved inter-leading concourse area, can accommodate more than 20 000 delegates. A Climate change Response Expo will be set up adjacent to these areas. These venues are situated within walking distance of one another, thus minimising the need for transport and reducing carbon emissions.
