Join the 34th Regional ISBT Congress in Cape Town for an unforgettable Transfusion Medicine Experience
The South African Society for Blood Transfusion, the ISBT Board of Directors, and the ISBT Central Office are proud to announce the 34th Regional ISBT Congress, which will take place from November 18-21, 2023, in Cape Town, South Africa.
This highly anticipated transfusion medicine congress will bring together experts and professionals from all over the world to share their latest research, ideas, and experiences in the field. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from and network with the best in the transfusion medicine community.
The ISBT Scientific Secretary, Jason Acker, and the local organising committee are developing an exciting programme that will provide knowledge-sharing opportunities ranging from cutting-edge science to the challenges of delivering comprehensive blood services in resource-constrained environments. The program will include content with special relevance to Africa on day one, followed by the main programme of scientific sessions, academy sessions, workshops, and poster presentations on days two to four. The Congress will also feature a comprehensive trade exhibition, which will host the Sunday evening welcoming gathering.
Registrations and abstract submissions for the Congress will start on May 15th, and we encourage all transfusion professionals and colleagues to participate in this unique event. With the Congress taking place in Cape Town, attendees will also have the opportunity to experience the city's natural beauty, vibrant culture, history, great weather, and affordability.
