Programme Highlights

The SAACI 2017 programme was designed in the 3 main industry focus areas, venues, conference and event organisers and services.

Participants could choose to stick to their specific stream or to join another, the programme structure also provided the opportunity for lively discussions with joint sessions.


SAACI 2017 brough a host of exciting Keynotes to Tshwane this year. The Congress line-up of keynotes were Siphiwe Moyo, Maarten Vanneste, Lebo Gunguluza and Michelle Crowley.

Introducing the Learning Lounge!

This year we created an open space with casual seating that encouraged movement and dialogue.  Five experts in their fields showcased the latest insights from best practices to problem solving.Each presenter had three 20minute sessions which gave delegates the oppotunity to move onto the next presentation enabling attendance at a total of three talks in the hour.
