The South African Council for the Architects Profession (SACAP), and dmg events, have finalised their partnership for the inaugural SACAP Stakeholder Convention taking place on August 26, 2021. The convention forms a part of dmg events' 8th annual African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo, which offers 360-degree solutions for Southern Africa's built environment and acts as a hub for industry experts, buyers and manufacturers of services and products from all over the world who have an interest in Southern Africa's construction sector.
The hybrid format of the event will bring together 250 in-person attendees to the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg and a further 500 participants will join through the digital platform, the organisers state. Against the theme, 'rebooting and repositioning the architectural profession', this is one of the many intervention programmes that SACAP has been mobilising in its mission to rebrand the architectural profession in South Africa.
„It marks a new era for architectural professionals.“
According to SACAP president, Mr Charles Nduku: "This convention not only marks an important milestone in the roadmap towards building relations with stakeholders, but is a new era for architectural professionals. Our goal is to inspire and motivate our professionals to become pioneers in bringing about transformation, diversity, leadership and innovation in the built environment so that architecture plays a more active role in shaping our society to reflect South Africa in all its diversity".
