The work we do

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


UCT CMC Track record


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 40 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 & Western Cape Convention Bureau.

Our offices are located in Brickfield Road in Woodstock, 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.
