East London

Named “Buffalo City” by the locals, East London is situated on the South East Coast of South Africa and some 1,000 km away from Cape Town. It is a hospitable town down to its very core with numerous B&B’s and Hotels.

East London International Convention Centre

The East London International Convention Centre (ELICC) is where innovative minds meet. Situated 15 minutes away from East London Airport and the Industrial Development Zone, the ELICC is well positioned to handle any type of conference.

It’s also the only conference centre in South Africa situated on a beachfront, allowing you to enjoy the natural beauty of East London right before you get down to business.
