The ICCA team visited Durban in February to meet with our local host committee, get a feel for the city, and visit the venues and hotels preparing to welcome AMP delegates in June! As we get closer to the 2019 ICCA AMP, we're incredibly happy to be able to give you a taster of what it's store for you, our delegates, when you join us in the Zulu Kingdom for 3 amazing days of knowledge sharing, networking, and outstanding KwaZulu-Natal hospitality.
Through the eyes of our Regional Director Esmaré and Events Manager Sina, who were on the ground in Durban, take a journey through our host destination:
1. Venue visits
Esmaré and Sina went with our local hosts, represented by Sonto Mayise, Director of Durban KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau, to visit the various venues preparing to welcome ICCA AMP delegates:
Durban International Convention Centre
uShaka Marine World
Moses Mabhiba Stadium
Visiting the Moses Mabhiba Stadium @MMStadium - which will be the venue for the farewell party at the #ICCAAMP. Who will be the brave one trying out world’s tallest swing? #ICCAWorld @SweetyMayise pic.twitter.com/MUZOVAA9mN— Sina Bünte, CMP (@SinaBuente) February 28, 2019
2. Meeting inspirational local figures
Professor Quarraisha Abdool Karim
It was an honor to meet Prof. Quarraisha Abdool Karim at @CAPRISAOfficial who will be one of our keynote speakers at the #iccaamp. She’s one of the world’s foremost medical and scientific authorities in the field of HIV & AIDS. #ICCAWorld pic.twitter.com/6RC02gkn6u— Sina Bünte, CMP (@SinaBuente) February 28, 2019
Fun fact: Professor Karim, a Durban local, was named one of 7 trailblazing women in science by the BBC in 2017.
