Hosted by Microscopy Society of Southern Africa
The Microscopy Society of Southern Africa (MSSA) acknowledges its responsibility to Africa and other fellow Africans in order to make this an economically-powerful continent, with skilled emerging scientists to assist in developing solutions for Africa. With the exposure that comes from hosting an international event such as IMC20, we will be able to encourage and further develop microscopy both here in South Africa as well as across the African continent.
Against the back-drop of the renowned Table Mountain, Cape Town – the Mother City of South Africa – is an attractive tourist destination offering numerous luxurious hotels, and beautiful attractions related to the rich history of our country. The Cape Town International Convention Centre is a world-class facility with a long tradition of hosting top international meetings and is therefore the perfect destination to welcome the international microscopy community.
Trade exhibitors are an integral part of our microscopy meetings, and the venue is ideally placed with all the required amenities and services to allow for a most successful experience.
In the hope that the International Federation of Societies for Microscopy (IFSM) and international colleagues will kindly consider supporting the MSSA Bid to initiate this collaborative effort in bringing together, and promoting all aspects of microscopy-related research in Africa.
