As the South African National Conventions Bureau, we are passionate about our country. But promoting South Africa as an ideal business destination is the easy part. What we really want to show the world is that when it comes to business travel, South Africa is much more than simply an ideal.
South Africa is a nation at the forefront of cutting-edge medical procedures. The country’s history of excellence and innovation in healthcare makes it a serious contender in the health tourism industry, one of the fastest-growing tourism trends. Not only are people coming from afar for medical forums but they are also seeing South Africa as the ideal place to recoup and recover after medical procedures due to the country’s modern medical procedures and affordable post-surgery tours and packages.
South Africa also has the largest pharmaceuticals market in Africa, valued at over USD3.2billion in revenue. The country also has a population with a high genetic diversity, which makes it a particularly advantageous location for life sciences research and application in the long term.
With all this in mind, the fact remains that South Africa is the ideal destination for medical conferences, meetings and symposiums due to its meaningful medical history and significant contributions to the field. With eight established and renowned medical schools, each under the support of public universities; it is no wonder then that South Africa is considered a world leader in medical practices and methods.
