Cape Town - The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is the best worldwide, said chief executive officer Rashid Toefy in an interview on Tuesday.

He made the comment after the CTICC held its annual general meeting.

The CTICC hit a record high in its tenth year of operations and added R2.99bn to the national economy and more than R1bn to the Western Cape’s coffers.

Toefy said the CTICC has made the shift to move beyond the triple bottom line to what is beginning to be known as the quadruple bottom line.

He said the group not only focuses on the environment, the social issues and the economic issues, but is overlayed by the essential requirement to also be financially viable and to be sustainably profitable.

"Our people have turned the vision of wanting to be the world's best convention centre into something that has become a reality.

"We have achieved that by spending a large percentage  of our human resource budget on training and development.

"In fact in the last year, more than 50% of our staff have undergone training either in professional qualifications up to university level degrees," said Toefy.

The centre is committed to deepening the talent pool not only in Cape Town but in the entire industry and South Africa as a whole, he added.
