Barely a few months after the 2020 FIAT/IFTA and IASA Joint Conference, preparations are underway for the 45th FIAT/IFTA World Conference, which will take place in Cape Town, South Africa. In consultation with the South African Communication Industries Association (SACIA), the host organisation of this conference, it has been decided to hold the conference from Monday 8 to Thursday 11 November 2021.
One decisive factor that FIAT/IFTA has no control over is of course the global health crisis. The organising committee keeps a close eye on the situation in the host country and the travel policies of the target groups of the conference. All scenarios are taken into account and a final decision on the in-person part of the conference is planned in the course of May 2021.
The conference venue and title will be announced in the coming months. The conference website and Call for Papers are scheduled for release in February. Keep an eye on all FIAT/IFTA channels to stay updated!
