'It is a real pleasure to deal with CTICC. They always seem to be able to exceed your expectations – no matter how difficult your requests may be. I spent almost a year working with them in preparation for the Sea Power for Africa Symposium, and it was a fantastic experience.' - Captain Leon Fourie SA Navy

'Thank you to the CTICC team members for their outstanding service, attentiveness and professionalism. Without them, our meeting would not have been as successful as it was.' - Christine M Rullo - MTN Coordinator: Network Microbicide Trials

'Having hosted events in international venues, we can definitely say that the CTICC is a world-class convention centre. It is well laid out for a large convention or conference and boasts all the facilities and infrastructure required to host a very successful event.' - Design Indaba Expo

'Commendations and compliments are being received from delegates, speakers, exhibitors and media from across the world on a very well organised and presented event. All at Sandton Convention Centre should share in these accolades. In the words of Monica Oliphant, ISES President, at the closing session of the 29th ISES Solar World Congress 2009, this will indeed be a hard act to follow. I believe we have set a new benchmark for SWC in general, having attended the previous congress in Beijing. As always, your team at Sandton Convention Centre excelled with a superb support service.' - Pieter Swart, CMP Congress Organiser: 29th ISES SWC 2009

'ISASA held its Conference 2010 at the Sandton Convention Centre last weekend, 11 and 12 September 2010. The purpose of this letter is to congratulate you and your staff on the professional way in which you tended to our every need to ensure a highly successful conference. The ISASA Conference this year was a unique event where we were trying something different. You and your staff have helped to make it a truly memorable one from which much value and benefit has been gained. Congratulations and thank you very much.' - John Lobban, Director: Membership and Operations and Conference Chair, 26th International Paediatrics Association Congress

'Benny and I would like to extend our deepest appreciation for all your hard work in making the IPA Congress a success. The facilities at the Sandton Convention Centre were impeccable and your staff could not have been more kind and helpful. Johannesburg left such a wonderful impression on us and we hope to work with you again in the near future. Deepest thanks.' - Shoshana Friedman, Kenes International

'We would like to express our sincere thanks for the excellent service we received from you and your team for the 60th FIFA Congress held in Johannesburg on 9 and 10 June 2010. As usual, you and your team were willing to go the extra mile for us. Without the unwavering support from Mati, Debra, David, Karen, Cedric and the rest of the Sandton Convention Centre team, we would not have pulled it off. We are proud to be associated with Sandton Convention and may our relationship continue to grow from strength to strength for many years to come.' Melissa Poole, Project Director

'Thank you for all of your hard work and assistance that contributed to making the Tribute to African Icons dinner on 10 July 2010 a great success; it could not have happened without you. I had such a positive experience working with the SCC on this event. Your efficiency, consistency, friendliness and willingness to help was remarkable - a level of service delivery I have not experienced elsewhere. Please make special mention of my thanks to Lota (operations), Tsepo (security), David (catering) and Thabo (beverage). I hope we have an opportunity to work together again in the future. - Tenjiwe Moyana, Africa Day.org
