Mark your calendars!
The WISA 2024 Biennial Conference & Exhibition will now take place from 12 to 14 June 2024

As Wednesday, 29th May has been declared as the day of South African General Elections, we had to change our dates.

The venue, speakers, workshops, interactive sessions, and networking opportunities will remain the same.

You now have two extra weeks to register, make travel plans, tweak presentations, refurbish stands and perfect your networking skills.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at

We understand that this change may cause inconvenience for some of our attendees, and for that, we sincerely apologise.
Our team is working diligently to ensure a smooth transition and to assist with any adjustments.

*Pre-Conference Technical Tours will be hosted on Tuesday 11 June 2024.
