Entrepreneur day at Durban ICC
Empowering small businesses
As part of the Durban International Convention Centre's (Durban ICC) efforts to create business opportunities for emerging and established entrepreneurs and ensure that they have access to markets, the centre recently held a Supplier Day, which provided an engagement platform with entrepreneurs. During the full-day seminar held on August 16, 2019, entrepreneurs were informed about various business opportunities available at the Durban ICC. They were also educated on eThekwini Municipality's Supply Chain Management (SCM) policies and processes that they need to comply with in order to qualify for work. The Durban ICC is an entity of the eThekwini Municipality. Durban ICC Chief Executive Officer Lindiwe Rakharebe said the Durban ICC was committed to the upskilling and empowerment of small businesses, which in turn are able to create much-needed employment opportunities in our communities. "In line with the city's developmental agenda, the centre remains committed to broadening the economic impact of the events and tourism sector through contributing to inclusive economic growth and empowering entrepreneurs while operating in a responsible manner. Our aim is to empower entrepreneurs to kick-start their business ventures or expand their existing businesses within the hospitality industry," said Rakharebe.
