The Durban International Convention Centre (Durban ICC) has introduced a new online app to make the lives of delegates, stakeholders, exhibitors and contractors easier. The venue integrates the what3words addressing system to assist its visitors with navigating their way around the complex. The what3words technology uses its unique approach to help visitors find the exact location of points of interest within the centre's complex. what3words is a simple way to talk about location. They have assigned to each 3-metre square in the world a unique three word address that will never change using three dictionary words. Durban ICC Chief Executive Officer Lindiwe Rakharebe said what3words is a simple and accurate way to help people find a precise location, making it much easier to discover and tell others about various places and explore the world without getting lost. "The Durban ICC is the largest flat floor, column-free multi-purpose event space in Africa. Incorporating the Durban International Convention Centre, Durban ICC Arena and Durban Exhibition Centre, the complex offers 112,000m² of flexible exhibition and meeting space and has multiple entrances. what3words, which is far more accurate and reliable, will help our delegates and visitors easily find the correct entrances to our venues for their specific events. Deliveries will also be sent to the intended entrance and contractors will not struggle to find their way to our loading dock entrance to offload goods", said Rakharebe.
