Southern African Transport Conference

July 5 July 7 CEST

The annual Southern African Transport Conference (SATC) is Southern Africa’s premier transport conference, bringing together over 700 transport professionals to discuss, debate and learn about relevant topics relating to the exciting world of transport.

The International Road Federation is pleased to support together with the South African Department of Transport the SATC for the 39th annual Webinar. This year’s theme is “Sustainable Transportation Through Enabling Partnerships” and it is designed to provide delegates with the inside track on sustainable transportation solutions, and how different transport nodes can respond better to the needs of transport users.

While this year will be held virtually from the 5th to the 7th of July, many activities have been put into place to provide a very interactive experience. Virtual chat functions and interactive tools will enable delegates to network, discuss and exchange information almost as though they are physically together. The virtual exhibition will enable visitors to source products online, request specific quotations, download information, and meet exhibitors through online chats.
