Having competed for the honour of being recognised as the ‘best of the best’ in the Eastern Cape at the fifth annual national ceremony, the East London International Convention Centre walked away with first prize.
The Lilizela Tourism Awards, held annually to celebrate excellence in the tourism trade industry, was held at the Sandton Convention Centre on 29 October 2017. On the win for Best Convention Centre in the province, in the category of Meetings, Exhibitions and Special Events (MESE), Samuel Nassimov, Managing Director of Premier Hotels & Resorts says, “We are very proud to have won in this year’s Awards. We work passionately and with pride to deliver world class products and service which is what the Awards recognise.”
The East London International Convention Centre (ELICC), the first beachfront International Convention Centre in Southern Africa, has a unique geographical position that allows it to become a central convergence point between all of the major centres of South Africa. Positioned on the Esplanade, a mere 15-minute drive from the East London Airport, the Industrial Development Zone and all major industries, the ELICC offers a fresh Eastern Cape alternative to the business tourism sector, locally and internationally.
