The annual SASTA Congress is one of the premier events in the South African Sugar industry's calendar. This event is acknowledged as one of the leading Sugar Technologists' events worldwide. SASTA Congress enjoys consistent support from the industry with about 520 delegates attending the 2015 Congress. Whilst the majority of delegates are from South Africa, SASTA Congress also attracts representatives from other African countries as well as overseas delegates.

The 2016 Congress sees us back in the familiar setting of the ICC. Seeing that we received overwhelming approval on the use of the concert arena end of the ICC for the 2015 exhibition and scientific presentations; we will be returning to a similar set up in 2016. The successes achieved in the 2015 SASTA Congress is thanks to the efforts of an excellent Conference Organising partner (Turners Conferences). SASTA will be thus continuing this partnership for the 2016 Congress.

The SASTA Council strives to host a Congress of a high standard that both delegates and sponsors/exhibitors are proud to be associated with. Support for the SASTA Congress, through sponsorship and/or the purchase of an Exhibition stand, has a direct impact on the quality of the Congress. SASTA Council values the support received by its exhibitors and sponsors and will acknowledge this at every opportunity throughout the duration of Congress.

We look forward to welcoming you at the 2016 SASTA Congress.
