Imagine an industry dedicated to best practice standards, ethical conduct and ongoing training to inspire and grow new talent, while facilitating networking platforms to share knowledge and opportunities. That was the goal behind the formation of the Southern African Association for the Conference Industry – SAACI. Founded in 1987 by Keith McCusker, it is now the recognized professional association for the business events industry of Southern Africa.
With over 1500 members, we protect the integrity and professional image of the business events industry ensuring the industry gains the respect and admiration of the business leaders we serve.
We are a professional association that promotes sustainability within the business events industry in Southern Africa. We facilitate an enabling environment for learning, growth and collaboration. Our goal is to be the recognised professional association of the business events industry of Southern Africa
