TIAFT 2021 CONFERENCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO 30 JAN – 3 FEB 2022, CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA.

Welcome to TIAFT in Cape Town!

As you have heard from the TIAFT President, we find ourselves having to postpone our long-awaited conference once again. Unfortunately, we have all become too familiar with ‘v’ words like viruses, variants, vaccines, vectors and the like, so the safety and wellbeing of all our delegates was therefore at the heart of our decision. Varying travel and quarantine restrictions between different countries that would impact many, was another important consideration. We are also hopeful that the extra three months we now have, will buy us precious time for vaccination rollouts across the world to accelerate.

We know this situation is disappointing and frustrating – there is nothing we would like more than to welcome you all to Cape Town as soon as possible, but it is what it is. We are all in this together and we will stay positive for a good outcome.

Our thanks to the TIAFT 2022 team in France for their understanding and willingness to accommodate our need to move the Cape Town meeting dates to early next year.

We have secured the same venues at the CTICC as before, as well as for all the other social events, for the new dates:

Saturday 29th January 2022 will be used as the setup day for our trade partners, with the conference kicking off on Sunday 30th January till Thursday 3rd February 2022.

One very important point to mention here, is that at this time it is SUMMER in the Southern Hemisphere – escape the icy grips of winter in the north – come and enjoy the Mother City at her most glorious, magnificent best!

Our website is in the process of being updated again and you will receive notification by email in the near future, of the relaunch for registration and abstract submissions.

The Cape Town Team is waiting to welcome you at the end of January 2022 for an in-person conference.  We believe that the decision to further postpone is a positive step that will ensure a vibrant, varied, valuable and victorious meeting – these are the ‘v’ words we all much prefer!

COME TO CAPE TOWN in January 2022!

Our warmest regards,

TIAFT Cape Town Team
