Invitation Letter:

Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the organising committee for the SEMDSA 2022 congress I would like to invite you to participate in the event.

We are excited to announce a new venue. The 2022 congress will be held at the Lagoon Beach hotel in Milnerton, Cape Town. Apart from being ideally situated and a four-star hotel and conference centre, it has ample space for industry stands, branding and advertising.

The conference will be held in September 2022 and hopefully the current COVID 19 pandemic will have abated by that time. The congress will be held as a hybrid live in-person and online congress. If necessary, we will be able to default to a virtual congress. But we really hope to be able to experience the “in-person” benefits of a live congress.

The virtual arm of the congress, apart from being the new normal, will allow us to extend our reach to the rest of Africa and beyond and bolster the panel of international speakers.

We hope that you will be able to join us in Cape Town (or on-line) in September 2022.

Yours sincerely

Bill Toet
