The 16th ISTMA World Conference has been rescheduled to 6 - 10 November 2023. The venue and the programme of the event remain unchanged.

Bob Williamson, President of ISTMA World, left a note about this rescheduling:

Dear ISTMA World Members

As you will appreciate it is difficult to avoid timing clashes when planning an international event. In consequence of feedback regarding the planned date for the next ISTMA World conference we requested our South African host PtSA to consider a rescheduling of the 16th ISTMA World Conference to avoid a clash with EMO 2023.
We are now pleased to advise that the PtSA team has accommodated the request and rearranged timing and will be hosting the All Africa Expo/ISTMA 2023 World Conference in Cape Town South Africa 6 -10 November 2023.
Please refer to the updated Save this Date circular and Web Site:  

P.S. The weather in Cape Town in early November is perfect
