    One upside to the pandemic dragging on is that we know more about the novel coronavirus disease known as Covid-19 or SARS-CoV-2, and how to better respond to it. We can also patch together this information and start to see what the future of our industry could look like.

    What do we know?

    Firstly, it is probably not going away

    With recurring waves of Covid-19, it seems unlikely that the virus will simply run its course and quietly disappear. Nature.com asked more than 100 immunologists, infectious-disease researchers and virologists working on the coronavirus whether it could be eradicated, and 89% believe it is likely or very likely to become an endemic disease (one which, like the flu, will become a disease we simply have to live with).

    Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa CEO of TBCSA is the recipient for the Skål International South Africa's Karl Twigg's Award 2020


    President of Skål International Pretoria Karin Sieberhagen Fouche together with the Lavonne Wittmann Past Skål International World President 2019 will be handing over the Karl Twiggs Floating Trophy in honour of a valuable contribution to the Tourism Industry to Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa CEO of TBCSA.

    The Handover of the Karl Twigg's Award will take place on Thursday 25th March 2021 @ Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel Centurion Pretoria from 12:00 

    We would love all Skålleagues, Tourism Friends and Associates to join us to applaud Tshifhiwa.

    He together with his team and other Tourism role players, were the driving force and one of the voices to bring the challenges facing this sector to our Government. 

    Skål International Pretoria's President Karin is looking forward to sharing this momentous occasion with you.


    Warm Regards
    National President Skål International South Africa

    “South Africa’s exhibition industry has a proven track record of providing quick and affordable solutions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. From testing and isolation centres to field hospitals, the exhibition industry’s temporary structures have allowed us to re-purpose our stock and create solutions in response to this health crisis,” says Justin Hawes, MD of Scan Display, a company that builds exhibition stands and infrastructure. “We can help with the next step in the pandemic response, with the set-up of vaccination centres around the country.”

    Hawes explains that Scan Display stocks a product well suited to these temporary builds, “Shell scheme is a simple walling system that is synonymous with exhibitions. Because it is modular, it can be configured in endless ways and adapted to fit any space or structure. It can also be assembled and taken down in short time frames, and it is inexpensive, easy to transport and can be repurposed after each use.”





    Vaccine rollouts are the next step in curbing the COVID-19 pandemic. Here at OCTANORM, we can keep you one step ahead with our approved designed, consulted and feasible protective measures, providing a hygienically safe concept for vaccine centres as currently being implemented in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK.
