Sponsorship & exhibitions

Dear Potential Sponsor / Exhibitor


Approximately 700 delegates (based on the 2022 and 2023 numbers, excluding the trade) are expected to attend the 2024 national congress of the Ophthalmological Society of South Africa in Gqberha.

This Congress is the number one event on the Ophthalmology calendar, with quality presentations and lectures by world-renowned keynote speakers supporting our mission – “prevention of blindness”.

A variety of opportunities remain for companies to promote themselves at this congress. The Organising Committee, chaired by Dr Schalk du Toit, has compiled a summary of these opportunities and invite interested companies to select the option best suited to their marketing strategies and product profile.

The participation of the trade is the backbone of a successful congress.
We have great appreciation for your continued support of our congresses in the past.

The Organising Committee would be most grateful if your company would consider participating in this congress.

Since the 2017 congress at the Boardwalk Hotel, the venue has provided infrastructure for air-conditioning units in the exhibition area.
