Who said that East London in the Eastern Cape is a ‘sleepy hollow’?
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the ELICC (East London International Convention Centre) and was taken by sheer surprise! This venture, ‘though initially believed to be a brave one, has already proved that it is worthy of much that Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban are when it comes to hosting large, national and international conferences!
Recent news is that the 16th National Congress of the South African Society of Psychiatrists was held at this fine conference venue in East London, bringing 500 delegates to this Eastern Cape Port city.
THE SASOP was so impressed with facilities, standards and service that they awarded this conference venue with SASOP’s Certificate of Service Excellence! Well done East London!
In another development, the ELICC will also host the biggest conference of medical doctors in South Africa when 1500 cardiologists attend the SA Heart Association congress next year, including 15 international speakers from various countries and representatives of 45 pharmaceutical companies.
East London is a central destination and far from it being merely a holiday destination or an industrial city, it’s face has changed and it is proud to present one of the most up-to-date conference venues in South Africa. Not only is this a large, and multi functional convention centre, it also incorporates the 261 roomed Premier Hotel Cascades, with panoramic views of the coastline, with VIP Lounges, a Business Centre, a rim-flow pool and a state of the art Wellness Spa Centre, presenting conference delegates with on-site accommodation and conference facilities at a top class hotel plus adjacent to the centre is the Premier Hotel East London offering another 175 room luxury rooms.
