    SAAPI conference moves to Sandton Convention Centre

    In a move aimed at providing greater convenience to delegates, the South African Association of Pharmacists in Industry (SAAPI) held its successful annual conference for the first time at Sandton Convention Centre last year, with excellent results. SAAPI represents pharmacists and allied professionals who practice in the industry and it provides value to PSSA (Pharmaceutical Society of SA) members who practice in the industry.


    The theme of the conference was ‘Pharmaceutical Industry Today – Managing Risk’ and highlighted proactive risk detection, broad risk awareness, and much more. “The SAAPI conference is aimed at keeping industry pharmacists informed of changes, while also allowing a platform for the Medicines Control Council to engage with industry and improve regulatory standards,” explains Tammy Chetty, President of SAAPI.

    The two-day conference was attended by approximately 150 people, with 17 speakers and one international speaker. “The conference included a small exhibition, the use of several different venues including the ballroom, all meals and break refreshments, as well as wi-fi – and all the services were of a high standard. The meals were well prepared, the technical assistance was well organised, and the support offered to our conference organiser was absolutely great,” says Chetty, who adds that feedback by delegates and speakers following the conference was “excellent”.

    The conference has previously been held in Pretoria – and the move ensured easier accessibility by a larger proportion of the delegates, quick and easy access via the Gautrain, as well as the wealth of facilities and parking offered by the convention centre’s close proximity to Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square.

    “This venue change to Sandton Convention Centre was the right decision; it was well received by our audience and members, and we will certainly be using the convention centre again.” Chetty expressed her thanks to the Sandton Convention Centre team for “a superb venue and facilities” for the conference.
