SAACI 2017: the definitive event for the South African events industry

SAACI 2017: the definitive event for the South African events industry

The 2017 Southern African Association for the Conference Industry Congress – SAACI 2017 – will be held in Tshwane, South Africa, from 2 to 4 June 2017. This forward-thinking congress welcomes professionals from a variety of conference industry sectors including conference and event organisers, event management companies and service providers, as well as industry stakeholders representing government, venues and destinations.

What’s new?

There are a few changes to this year’s congress programme. Firstly, the days have changed. The Congress will now run from Friday to Sunday.

The pre-Congress tours and Out of the Ordinary sessions have been replaced with more invigorating activities including a fun run/walk on the Friday morning and a Secret Sunrise on Saturday morning. The Re-Connect Evening will take place on Friday, and the Gala Dinner and Awards on the Saturday evening.

The Congress programme will consist of three streams focusing on the wider groupings of the SAACI forums: Conferences and Events, Venues, and Services.

Participants can choose to stick to their specific stream or to join another, and the programme structure will provide space for lively discussions within joint sessions.
