26th Annual IABC Africa Conference

Dear Colleagues,


It is with great regret that we wish to notify you of the cancellation of the 26th Annual IABC Africa Regional Conference which was scheduled to take place on 16 and 17 October at The Gordon Institute of Business Science School (Gibs) Illovo, Johannesburg.


All avenues were considered and it was not an easy decision to make, however, due to the poor economic situation globally, the inability to secure sponsorships and the need to be cautious and conservative due to a decline in membership Regionally and Globally, and to ensure the stability of the Region, it was a decision we had to take.


The annual conference is our most anticipated event, and it saddens us deeply to know that we are not in a position to fulfill the tradition this year.

We endeavour to provide you with at least 2 networking and professional development sessions prior to the end of the year.


Please accept our most sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.

We thank you for your understanding and continued support of the IABC.



P. Dhlomo


IABC Africa Regional Chair
