The 2024 ASSA Convention will be a return to fully in-person, with a live stream of our Presidential Plenary. It will take place in Cape Town on 20 and 21 November and be preceded by the Africa Seminar on 19 November. The decision to move it to an in-person only event has not been taken lightly and is driven by the following factors:

-Variable quality of virtual delivery.

-High overhead of live broadcast videos.

-Hybrid delivery places constraints on logistical arrangements that adversely impact the experience of in-person attendees.

-Multiple virtual individuals benefiting from a single convention ticket as sessions broadcast in conference rooms in some locations.

-Encouraging networking within the profession.
