Sponsorships & Exhibitions


Our next combined South African Congress of Oncology (SACO) will take place from 1 – 3 September 2023.

The programme for the congress will kindly be organised by Dr Mariza Tunmer as the SASCRO representative, together with the representatives of the above-mentioned organisations.

The Cape Town International Convention Centre will be the venue for the event and exhibitions will be hosted in Exhibition Hall 3.

The South African Congress of Oncology has an inclusive national vision and will include both international and locally relevant content. It will have plenary sessions of general interest and streams of specialised interest and uphold high professional standards.

There will be collaboration between the SASCRO and RSSA sessions – with a special emphasis on improving the interaction of the two disciplines to the benefit of both and, ultimately, also for our patients.

We look forward to productive and congenial relationships with all professions working in Oncology and to see you all at a successful meeting in September 2023.

We will have the second Archbishop Desmond Tutu Distinguished Lecture at this congress.

(The SACO 2025 congress will be hosted in Sandton)


Approximately 950 delegates (based on the 2019 numbers, including 220 trade delegates) are expected to attend SACO 2023.

There are a variety of opportunities for companies to promote themselves at this congress. The Organising Committee, chaired by Dr Mariza Tunmer, has compiled a summary of these opportunities and invite interested companies to select the option best suited to their marketing strategies and product profile.

As the participation of the trade is the backbone of a successful congress, the Organising Committee would be most grateful if your company would consider participating in this congress.

In the current budget-constrained environment the organisers would like to encourage participating exhibitors to carefully reconsider the use of expensive promotional displays in the exhibition area. A trend towards simplicity and relevance is considered more appropriate at this time. We think you would agree.
