South Africa’s doors are open

South Africa is ready to welcome back the world. With its cultural diversity, magnificent landscapes and rich offering of spectacular experiences, visitors will arrive intrigued and leave inspired!

South Africa is open for business and has been busy hosting events.

With its innovative life sciences sector, particularly in the areas of public health and infectious diseases, South Africa is a top contender as a Business Events Destination. Home to some of the world’s most inspired thinkers in life sciences, its venues adhere to strict health protocols.

South Africa has many sectors of excellence but the pandemic inadvertently showcased the country’s ability to respond to a changing global landscape and address the challenges of the day. By cultivating a spirit of optimism, whilst acknowledging collective social and economic challenges, South Africa punched above its weight and built on its incredible achievements - further stamping the country as one of the leaders in medical innovation.

South Africa conducted the most testing in Africa for Covid-19, alerted the world to the infectious nature of the Delta variant, thanks to incredible local genomics institutes, and ran its own National Ventilator programme to produce ventilators for local use and export.
