The Eastern Cape is a province with much to offer the local and international conferencing and exhibition industries. Not only does it offer a range of high-end convention centres and event venues for hosting world-class business events, but it also has a varied selection of incentive products and natural, cultural and historical attractions for the discerning traveller.
It also has a busy events calendar. The Grahamstown National Arts Festival is the biggest arts festival in Africa and is held in July annually. The region is also known as the water sport capital of SA, with a host of international and local water events. Recent business events that have taken place in the Eastern Cape include the Maritime Summit in October 2016, the South African Cultural Observatory National Conference in Port Elizabeth in May 2016, and the 80th IMESA Conference at the ELICC late last year. The 25th Congress of the South African Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology was also held at the ELICC in July 2016. Still to come are the African Marine Waste Conference in July, and the Manufacturing Indaba Eastern Cape in October 2017.
