Exhibitor Invitation

We are delighted to extend an invitation to potential sponsors and/or exhibitors at our inaugural conference.

This conference is organised by the South African Academy of Forensic Sciences (SAAFS) in conjunction with the University of Pretoria, Faculty of Health Sciences.

The conference will be held in-person at the Tswelopele Building, University of Pretoria, Prinshof Campus on the 5th and 6th of July 2024.

This ground-breaking conference aims to gather more than 100 attendees from diverse facets of forensic science, covering disciplines such as forensic toxicology, crime scene investigation, forensic pathology, fingerprint analysis, DNA and molecular biology, entomology, forensic odontology, forensic anthropology, digital forensics, chemistry, as well as seized drugs. In addition, we will also invite prominent people within the legal fraternity, forensic journalism, and crime reporting. 

The event will also feature sessions on day 2, specifically set up to attract scholars and university students, eager to explore opportunities in the field of forensic science.

Your participation as an exhibitor offers an unparalleled opportunity to showcase your company and products to a targeted audience of professionals, scholars, and aspiring forensic scientists. The spacious Tswelopele Building provides an ideal platform for your display, with an open quad and a large indoor foyer available for your exhibition needs. The organisers will supply basic amenities such as tables and chairs, and we welcome any additional branding materials you wish to bring. 

We believe that your involvement as an exhibitor and/or sponsor will significantly enhance the conference experience for attendees.

We look forward to having you as part of this unique event, and we are confident that your participation will contribute to the success of the conference.
