Travel & Safety Information

While Cape Town offers an incredible array of experiences, we find it crucial to provide you with some practical advice to ensure a pleasant and worry-free visit:

  • When exploring Cape Town, we recommend traveling in groups or using licensed taxis to ensure a secure experience. By staying together, you can create a sense of camaraderie and enjoy the city’s attractions while minimising any potential risks. Utilising authorised taxi services offers an additional layer of safety, providing peace of mind as you navigate the city.
  • When preparing for your journey to Cape Town, it is crucial to prioritise the safety of your essential documents. This encompasses safeguarding your passport, travel insurance, as well as any required visas or travel permits. To ensure their protection, it is advisable to create copies of these documents and store them separately from the originals in a secure location.
  • Familiarise yourself with emergency contact numbers and keep them readily accessible. The emergency number for South Africa is: 112

Although caution is advised when in Cape Town, the local authorities, in collaboration with the business community, have implemented initiatives to address concerns and create a secure environment for conference attendees.

The Mother City continues to evolve as a global conference hub, hosting big, international events, showcasing the transformative nature of the locals’ dedication to safety.

Here are some of the events the CTICC will be hosting in the months before ISPPD-13:

  • ISTMA 2023 – World Conference and Exhibition
  • IUIS 2023 – 18th International Congress of Immunology
  • WFNS 2023 – 18th World Congress of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies
  • African Air Expo 2024 – Exhibition and Conference
Cape Town is a vibrant metropolis, and like any major city, it’s important to exercise caution and be aware of your surroundings, but rest assured that the City of Cape Town, the local police and the CTICC’s own security services work closely together to ensure a safe environment for all visitors and conference delegates.
