The Executive Council of AORTIC wishes to extend a special invitation to local and international companies and organisations to participate as sponsors of its Sixth International Conference. Following the successful previous conference in Dakar, Senegal in 2005, the conference is titled Cancer in Africa: Challenges and Opportunities and will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from 24th to 28th October 2007.

The Executive Council of AORTIC has determined that sponsorship of conference activities, services and materials/products is an appropriate method of raising funds for the purposes of:


  • Keeping registration costs to a minimum to attract maximum attendance
  • Allowing for expansion and enhancement of the conference programme and allowing it to attract the most sought after speakers
  • Establishing and maintaining a balanced budget
  • And is committed to the following principles:


  • sponsorship activities should be executed and acknowledged in such a way that the conference is not perceived as a commercial endeavour
  • the aim of the conference is to be a vehicle to enhance the dissemination and exchange of scientific information

    Please download a comprehensive Sponsorship Prospectus or contact the secretariat for further information.
