Trade and Sponsorship

Dear Colleagues and Members of the Trade

We are very excited to bring you ESMO Summit Africa 2019! This will be held once again at the Century City Conference Centre from 15th – 17th February 2019.

The event will be co-chaired by Andrés Cervantes, ESMO Educational Committee Chair, as well as by local co-chairs, Hannah Simonds, (SASCRO) Georgia Demetriou, (SASMO) and Daniel Vorobiof.

The Summit will bring 13 international speakers from ESMO, as well as several high profile local speakers.

Topics to be covered in this summit will include:

  • breast cancer
  • palliative care
  • development in systemic therapies
  • development in radiotherapy (focus on CNS and Paediatrics)
  • lung cancer and mesothelioma
  • soft tissue sarcoma
  • haematology malignancies
  • urological cancers
  • upper GI cancers

In addition to the summit sessions, 3 small half day workshops will be held on the morning of the 15th February. The workshops will focus on Advanced Breast Cancer, Palliative Care and Advanced Prostate Cancer and will look at current ESMO guidelines and their place as well as challenges to implementation in Africa. Each workshop will comprise approximately 20 delegates (by invitation only). Each workshop will also present a feed-back session in the main meeting.

We hope that local Trade will come out strongly in support of this meeting once again. We believe it is an important academic meeting, supported by our international partner, and aimed at continuous improvement of Oncology services in our country and our continent.

Kind regards,
Hannah, Georgia and Daniel.
