Let’s face it: hospitals can be quite intimidating! What if we told you, however, that there was a way to interact with the latest medical hardware products and network with some leading regional medical professionals without going to the emergency room?

Enter Africa Health is the largest exhibition event for the African healthcare community. Hosted in sunny South Africa, this annual exhibition is a pivotal platform for CEOs, marketing managers, and event planners to exchange cutting-edge ideas and advanced medical technologies across the healthcare industry. The event showcases a diverse array of exhibits advertising state-of-the-art medical devices and innovative healthcare services, all designed to propel the health sector forward. 

Dates and venue

The next instalment of this exciting healthcare trade show will take place from 22 to 24 October 2024. Unlike previous exhibitions, which were held at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, the 2024 Africa Health event will move to the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in the Mother City. Attendees should register their interest online for free entry on the exhibition days.

Having exhibited major African exhibition events like AfricaCom and the Africa Mining Indaba, the CTICC is a cornerstone of sophistication and functionality in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Well-regarded for its contemporary design and facilities, the CTICC offers quality exhibition spaces to ensure a seamless experience for all attendees.
