The convention is scheduled for 8 November 2018 at the Hilton Hotel, Sandton. The theme for this year’s convention is: “Innovation Towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution”. This theme speaks to the current global and domestic movement of boosting growth through investment in key infrastructure. It is the theme of this year’s jobs summit and a keen focus of both the public and private sectors. The convention plans to be focussed on how business, especially the SACCI membership, can support infrastructure investment, R&D, and innovation to spur economic growth, build capacity, create jobs and expand investment. All of these are pertinent issues in terms of improving South Africa’s competitiveness and revitalizing its economy to improve our credit rating outlook and boost inclusiveness and sustainability.
The 2018 convention will continue its history of hosting high caliber local and international speakers, presenting topics of key importance to South Africa’s economic development.
