About Us

The CMC is a professional conference organiser (PCO) specialising in association management and conference management. The CMC is part of the Commercial Development Unit which falls under UCT Finance.  CMC holds unique knowledge of the university processes, venues, protocol and contacts; and academic processes in general.

As an experienced PCO with a dedicated team of coordinators, we understand that each conference (and its organising committee) has unique requirements. This is why we make it a priority to assist and guide the committee to ensure every event is a success. We’ve been organising and planning for more than 30 years and continue to deliver successful events for satisfied returning clients. We have experience in international bid submissions and work in collaboration with the Cape Town Convention Bureau.

Our offices are located at UCT in the Bremner Building on lower campus in Rondebosch, Cape Town, meaning we are just a short drive away from all the city centre conference venues and hotels that the beautiful Mother City has to offer. We have long-standing relationships with all the major hotel groups as well as the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), Cape Town Tourism and the Cape Town Convention Bureau, ensuring we get the best possible service and deals for your conference.

Our preferred suppliers are experienced and professional, meeting our exacting standards to offer you the best possible product or service.

The CMC is SAACI (Southern African Association for the Conference Industry)-accredited and a member of the Event Greening Forum and Cape Town Tourism.
