Exhibition space will be allocated on a first come first serve basis, depending on level of sponsorship.

Against a backdrop of escalating healthcare costs, ICON provides innovative, cost-effective oncology services and solutions in the field of managed healthcare. It is unswerving in its aim to reduce wastage and secure the highest quality cancer care for the broadest number of patients. This is a progressive approach that combines population risk management with individualized care. The ICON conference will give ample opportunity for ICON network members to interact with each other and with members of industry.

There will be parallel sessions for clinical and management staff. Value based care will be emphasized with the theme for 2018 being “Optimizing Outcomes: Unlocking Value” it is recognized that only through the measurement of patient outcomes, patient satisfaction and cost effectiveness, can the delivery of a high-quality cancer care model be achieved in South Africa.

Approximately 700 delegates (based on the 2016 numbers, excluding the trade delegates) are expected to attend the 2018 ICON Conference.

A variety of opportunities remain for companies to promote themselves at this conference. The Organising Committee, has compiled a summary of these opportunities and invites interested companies to select the option best suited to their marketing strategies and product profile.

The participation of the trade is the backbone of a successful conference. We have great appreciation for your continued support of our conferences.

The Organising Committee would be most grateful if your company would consider participating in this conference.

In the current budget-constrained environment the organisers would like to encourage participating exhibitors to carefully reconsider the use of expensive promotional displays in the exhibition area.

A trend towards simplicity and relevance is considered more appropriate at this time and a focus on creativity will also be well received by delegates who will find alternative marketing strategies refreshing.

Please note that no custom-build stands will be allowed.
ICON would encourage participating exhibitors to consider sponsoring local and international delegates to attend the conference.

All your contributions will be taken into consideration in determining sponsorship status.
