Where are 2014 World Youth Chess Championships to be Held?
Durban is the largest city in the South African province of Kwa Zulu-Natal, also tenderly known as the Zulu Kingdom. Durban is also the major centre of tourism in South Africa because of the city's warm subtropical climate and extensive beaches.
The Championships will be hosted at the International Convention Centre, Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. The ICC Durban is one of the most advanced conference facilities in the world. The facility boasts the largest area of column free, flat floor, multi-purpose space in Africa coupled with state of the art technology. As well as being named Africa's Leading Conference Centre for the 10th year by the World Travel Awards, the ICC Durban has been voted amongst the top 20 conference centres in the world by the AIPC. The ICC Durban is purpose-built, fully air-conditioned and comprises six convention halls that are interlinked, but separate. Halls 4-6 double as convention and meetings spaces and the flat floor space for the ICC Arena makes it the leading indoor sports and entertainment venue in Durban which accommodates up to 10,000 spectators.
